Apple iPhone 5S announced, Touch ID looks interesting
I guess all of that waiting has finally paid off – Apple finally decided to lift up the veil on the iPhone 5S, and whether that particular device has proven itself to be the “tonic” that Cupertino requires in order to bring the iPhone brand to the next level remains to be seen, as the proverbial crystal ball is really too murky to look into at the moment. First of all, let us bring you the features of the iPhone 5S that Apple so painstakingly wants to point out to you – a 64-bit A7 chip, an all-new 8 megapixel iSight camera with True Tone Flash and of course, the wonders of its Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
One thing I can say about the new iPhone 5S is, if your Home button starts to act all wonky, do expect it to be a whole lot more expensive to replace assuming it is no longer under warranty, no thanks to the inclusion of the fingerprint sensor that has been built right into the Home button itself. Apple also prides in the iPhone 5S as the “world’s first smartphone with 64-bit desktop-class architecture”, although a lot of the processor’s performance would only be fully utilized depending on how the software’s code is written.
Touch ID happens to be the most interesting development for a smartphone, as it offers an innovative manner for you to simply and securely unlock your handset – with but a single touch of a finger. Not only that, another major improvement under the hood would be iOS 7, which happens to be the most significant iOS update since the original iPhone, where it was specially engineered for 64-bit technology while boasting its fair share of new features such as Control Center, Notification Center, improved Multitasking, AirDrop, enhanced Photos, Safari, Siri and iTunes Radio.
The iPhone 5S would arrive in gold, silver or space gray, where it will feature 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities which will retail for $199, $299 and $399, respectively.
