Finally, Apple has launched its next generation iPhone at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. As expected, it is called iPhone 5S. Apple calls it most “forward-looking” iPhone ever launched. It will be available in gold, silver and graphite-grey colors.
iPhone 5S is powered by new A7 processor. This A7 processor contains more than 1 billion transistors onto 102 mm chip. Apple claims that iPhone 5S is five times faster than iPhone 5 and 56 times faster than original iPhone. It can also run 64 bit apps. Apple has also redesigned built-in apps (Email and Calendar) for new 64 bit architectures.
It features a 4-inch touchscreen display with 1136 x 640 pixel resolution. Apple has also upgraded its camera with 15% more area. Camera has 5 elements with an f/2.2 aperture. Larger sensor results bigger pixels. Camera is backed with dual LED flash. Two LED flashes have different color temperatures and illumination. In burst mode, camera can take 10 photos in a second.
Apple has also announced that iPhone 5S also features a fingerprint scanner. It aims to provide an extra layer of security. Apple says that most of the users do not want to add password. So, this fingerprint scanner will add a security directly on home button. It is called TouchID.
