The Apple iPhone 5S - "The Most Forward-Thinking Smartphone in the World"

And here is Apple's 2013 flagship smartphone, the iPhone 5S. Apparently, it is the iPhone 5 but with 3 new things added into it, aside from the obvious iOS 7. The iPhone 5S still has a 8MP rear shooter, but according to Apple, the sensor is improved and still takes great photos but now with bigger pixels. Another cool technology or feature included in the iPhone 5S is Touch ID. If you look at the other photos of the iPhone 5S on this post, you can see that the home button is different compared to the other iPhones even with that of the iPhone 5C. The thing that makes it different is the fingerprint scanner incorporated into it. With Touch ID purchasing apps on iTunes will be much easier, no need for passwords and whatnots just scan your fingerprint and viola. The next thing that is new on this device is the Apple A7 64-bit processor. Now that is a first in the mobile industry. which is best explained by other techblogs who have deeper knowledge on the 64-bit of it all. The A7 chip comes with a dedicated motion processor named as the M7. The iPhone 5S will be available starting September 20th in the US and pricing starts at $199 for the 16GB version with a 2-year contract with either AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
