Apple iPhone 5S Announced: Features, Release Date And Price Details Revealed

Finally the greatest and latest flagship smartphone “iPhone 5S” has officially introduced to the world alongside the budget-iPhone 5C and iOS 7. Full details on what actually the newly announced iPhone 5S is prepared of after the break.

Features of iPhone 5S

The device packs with Apple’s all new A7-chip, processing is of 64-bit variety, which usually delivers a stronger performance compared to the current iPhone 5’s predecessor. It has the ability, that enables iOS 7’s animations to run smoothly without any kind on lag. A6 on iPhone 5 was relatively strong enough during the course of the last year, but with A7 processor, Apple pushing the boundaries just that little bit further, the iPhone 5S will definitely be among the smoothest devices available in the market.


The iPhone 5S would be the first smartphone ever Apple has released a device with a 64-bit processor and with the Fingerprint sensor.

Home Button / Touch ID:

The new iPhone, obviously the high-end iPhone 5S smartphone has precisely has a fingerprint scanner, which Apple is officially calling it the “tOuch ID”, aprt from the apt description of Home Button. Enabling a device to be unlocked without typing in a PIN or password – which it brings enahanced set of security while also being rather simple and cool inclusion.

Touch ID on iPhone 5S can also read multiple fingers, which by means it’s not limited to single thump, for example. Touch ID is deeply integrated into the iOS 7, according to Apple CEO, you can set it up to make iTunes purchases as well. In Layman’s terms; your fingers are now your password. Win.


Although the traditional Home Button is not removed but stay there, but only serves its purpose as a fingerprint sensor as well. The traditional square logo on the Home Button is now a thing of the past.

The iPhone 5S Camera Features

A dual-LED flash, which not only improves low-lighting shots, but also offers more genuine lighting compared with the traditional, dear-in-the-headlights look. iPhone 5S with a rear-facing snapper sports an 8-megapixel, F2.2 wide aperture lens offering, features 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second and up to 120 frames per second at 720p, which will be a massive leap on the iPhone 5. Wait, there’s an improved image sensor which is now 15 percent more larger, which allows more detail to be captured in low light reduction.

Interesting about iPhone 5S’ camera is now it can take photos in burst mode, as well. As if you’re into taking action shots, then the burst mode will assure you never miss a scene. Apple is introducing Slo-Mo with the new iPhone 5S, which lets you slow down parts of your video for that oh-so dramatic video shot. This is what we can talk about the 120 frame per sond right now.


The front-facing meanwhile on the iPhone 5S is only 1.2MP offering, only used for Facetime and video calling, that low megapixel is enough. Isn’t it! It’s got a 5-element lens with an aperture of f/2.2 on top of a sensor with a surface area 15 percent larger than the device it replaces. The new iPhone’s “True Tone” dual-LED flash — with different color temperatures on each LED — kicks into action.

Now, the Design of the iPhone 5S (described)

Similar to the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5S looks almost identical to the iPhone 5. Aside from the rather distinctive Touch ID sensor, the iPhone 5S almost looks similar to its older brother. The main difference would be the key design; iPhone 5S will, come as rumored in a gold color configuration.

Already shon in the image below and Tim Cook has announced it at the event tonight. What are your opinions on whether a gold iPhone is a good idea or not, the fact remains that it’s another option, which can never be a bad thing.
