Ah, finally.. finally, the iPhone 5s

Apple's latest and greatest flagship smartphone has been revealed to the world. And we've got all the details under one roof!


The iPhone 5s packs Apple's all-new A7 processor, which is of the 64-bit variety, which naturally delivers a stronger performance compared with that of its predecessor. This enables iOS 7′s animations to run smoothly and without any kind of lag. Of course, the A6 has been relatively strong for the iPhone 5 during the course of the last year, but with A7 pushing the boundaries just that little bit further, the iPhone 5S will surely be among the smoothest devices on the market.


So yes, in case you're wondering, the iPhone 5s is the first ever smartphone which has a 64-bit processor. Apple goes as far as saying that 'the other guys aren't even talking about this' yet.

Home button / Touch ID:

Every new iPhone needs a feature to talk about, and the iPhone 5s has precisely that with a fingerprint sensor, which Apple is officially calling 'Touch ID', apart from the apt description of Home button. Enabling a device to be unlocked without typing in a PIN or password – a cumbersome rigmarole at the best of times – it brings enhanced security while also being rather cool.

Touch ID

But wait, there's more, Touch ID can read multiple fingers, which means it's not limited to your thumb, for example. Touch ID is deeply integrated into iOS 7, according to Apple, which means that you can set it up to make iTunes purchases as well. In Layman's terms; your fingers are now your password. Win.

The traditional Home button is still there, but serves its purpose as a fingerprint sensor as well. The traditional square logo on the Home button is now a thing of the past.

Naturally, Apple has made quite a bit of fuss about the new feature, but hey, regardless of whether you see much benefit from it or not, it's a gimmick to get it selling.


The iPhone 5s features dual-LED flash, which not only improves low-lighting shots, but also offers more natural lighting compared with the traditional, deer-in-the-headlights look.

iPhone5sdualled flash

The rear-facing snapper is an 8-megapixel, F2.2 wide aperture lens affair, and features 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second, and up to 120 frames per second at 720p, which is a massive leap on the iPhone 5. But that's not just it, the image sensor is now 15 percent more larger, which allows more detail to be captured in low light.

Still wondering about the 120fps part? 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.

To top things off, the iPhone 5s' camera now takes photos in burst mode, too. If you're into taking action shots, then the new burst mode will assure you never miss a scene.

Camera also features Auto image stabilization.

The front-facing camera, meanwhile, is a 1.2 megapixel offering, but seeing as it's only for FaceTime and such, its purpose doesn't stretch beyond showing vaguely viewable image.


The iPhone 5s is very much in the same vein as the iPhone 4S in that it looks almost identical to the iPhone 5. Aside from the rather distinctive Touch ID sensor, the iPhone 5s looks very similar to its older brother.

Having said that, there is one key difference; the iPhone 5s will, as rumored come in a gold color configuration, a decision which is likely to split the crowd as much as it already has. But while we perhaps all have 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.

Color Options:

Gold, Silver, and Space Gray



The iPhone 5s will offer 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage configurations. In a world in which we've become heavily reliant upon apps, it's good to see Apple preparing power users appropriately, and while some older models would have found 64GB of storage simply crippling, the A7 processor of the iPhone 5s should keep everything ticking over nicely.


The iPhone 5s offers all the usual wireless connectivity as you'd expect. Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n (and no ac, which is a big bummer), 4G LTE with supports for even more bands around the globe.


Apple has a bigger battery, which offers 10 hours of 3G talk time, 8 hours of 3G Web browsing, 10 hours of Web browsing on LTE, 10 hours of Web browsing on Wi-Fi. The iPhone 5s offers 250 hours of standby time, with 10 hours of continuous video playback, and 40 hours of music.


No surprises here, the iPhone 5s will run iOS 7 out of the box, but some features are exclusive to the iPhone 5s, such as burst mode and Slo-Mo.


Apple has also announced the official leather case for the iPhone 5s. So, if you're in the market and looking for a decent leather case, then the official accessory is your best bet from this point onwards. It will

Release Date

The iPhone 5s will be available to buy in stores on Friday, September 20th. And will be available in the following countries: US, UK, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan and Singapore. This is the first time the iPhone will be available in China at launch, which is a big plus!


Contract free price of iPhone 5s: 16GB for $649, 32GB for $749 and 64GB for $849. 
On contract price of iPhone 5s: 16GB for $199, 32GB for $299

Apple today announced the new lower-priced iPhone 5c

iPhone 5C header 1

Apple has posted a new product video for the 5c.

The iPhone 5c, Apple's first attempt at a low-budget model smartphone, has just been officially announced, and after months of rumor and speculation, we finally have all of the official details. Read on for everything you need to know about the new iPhone 5c.


The budget model runs on the same dual-core A6 processor seen within the iPhone 5, which means daily tasks on the iOS 7 operating system should be a relative breeze. It was heavily rumored that Apple would continue using its in-house iPhone 5 SoC for the iPhone 5c, and following the announcement, we now know this to be the case.

As far as storage goes, the iPhone 5c arrives in two storage options: 16GB and 32GB. Those who were wondering whether the 5c will be available in 64GB configuration will be disappointed.


As per the leaks and speculation, the iPhone 5c is comprised a polycarbonate finish to the rear, and arrives in a plethora of different colors, including green, yellow, blue, white and red. This won't have the same premium feel as flagship iPhone models we've seen, but given how many high-end smartphones, like the Nokia Lumia 920, have sported a shiny plastic finish in the past, it should still feel like a well-built Apple product to the touch.



The Home button remains at the bottom in the center, providing the same functionality it always has, while the volume rockers sit on the left-hand side. In essence, the iPhone 5c is very similar to the iPhone 5, but takes away one or two perks in order to remain as inexpensive as possible.


Like the iPhone 5 before it, the iPhone 5c is fully supportive of 4G LTE, and with many cellular providers now driving forward their efforts towards 4G, this can only be a good thing. Ideal for streaming movies and downloading music, 4G LTE ensures ultra-fast data speeds when not connected to a hotspot, and with the iPhone 5 having been the first handset to offer support, the iPhone 5S follows on in a similar vein.


Wi-Fi, meanwhile, supports both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, which, in Layman's terms, means you shouldn't experience much by way of interruption when using your Wi-Fi at home.

Rest is all standard, such as Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, cellular triangulation etc.


The main camera, like the processor, is borrowed from the iPhone 5, with that same 8-megapixel offering to which we've already become accustomed. When it did arrive late last year, it boasted better low-light performance than those of its predecessors, with an F/2.4 lens, so those with a tendency to get snap-happy on the likes of Instagram and Flickr should be more than impressed by this revelation.

iPhone 5C camera

The front-facing camera, meanwhile, shoots in 720p HD, and while it's by no means comparable to the rear shooter, should still do a solid job when FaceTiming or taking those selfies.


In the camera department, it's set in stone that the iPhone 5c is surely a winner and will not disappoint the average user.


The battery and has been improved, and should keep things ticking over through general use. With some devices offering over 3,000mAh, it doesn't seem like an astonishing battery life, but with most iPhone 5 users satisfied by the longevity of their device through day-to-day usage, the iPhone 5c should once again be able to sustain a full day on a full charge.


The iPhone 5c offers 10 hours of talk time on 3G, with up to 250 hours of standby time. When it comes to Web browsing, the iPhone 5C is a champ. It offers 8 hours of 3G Web browsing, 10 hours on 4G LTE and up to 10 hours on Wi-Fi.

iPhone 5c offers 10 hours of video playback and 40 hours of audio playback.

Lightning Port

Naturally, the iPhone 5c features the Lightning dock connector, after the phasing out of the larger 30-pin connector late last year. We'd love to have seen Apple go for something a little less proprietary, but hey, that's Apple!


Out of the box, you get your dock connector, wall charger, EarPods headset and the usual literature, including quick-start information and, of course, your Apple stickers.


But that's not all, Apple is also introducing new custom cases for the iPhone 5c, and from the image (above), you can see, gives your device a really cool look. For $29, it's a good buy and comes in a variety of color options!


The 16GB iPhone 5c will cost $99, and the 32GB model will cost $199 on a two-year contract. The price for the unlocked model is as follows: 16GB for $549 and $649 for 32GB.


The device will be available to pre-order from Apple starting September 13th, and will be available in stores on September 20th.

The iPhone 5 Has Been Jailbroken on iOS 6.1.4!

Winocm has revealed the successful jailbreak of the iPhone 5 on iOS 6.1.4 via a picture just posted to Twitter.

In the screenshot seen below, Cydia is shown running on the phone. At the very bottom of the screenshot you can see the iPhone 5 device and iOS 6.1.4 firmware specified.

About a week ago, winocm announced that he had a binary that would perform an untether of the iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. At that time he had only tested the jailbreak on an iPhone 4. 

It appears as though winocm's work on the jailbreak has progressed to the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.4. At this time there is no ETA for release.

Customers are already in line for the iPhone 5S before Apple has even announced the device and two weeks before its expected release.

Two representatives from SellYourMac arrived at the Fifth Ave store today to begin their two week campout only to find that they weren't even the first ones in line. Two other campers took the first spots last night.

Often the first positions in line are taken by companies or startups looking to promote their products with some free publicity. Of course, there are those who lineup just to sell their spot to others.

Apple Store staff has yet to talk to those waiting in line; however, they've queued up at the usual spot on the plaza outside of the flagship store.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th. Currently, launch date rumors are pegging September 20th as the release date.
