All the iPhone lovers get ready to loosen your wallet. Apple has welcomed two youngest member to it’s family : a 64 bit, much faster iPhone 5S and a multicolored (probably tweaked iPhone 5) iPhone 5C. Both the smartphones will be officially launched on September 20, 2013, announced Apple on Tuesday afternoon at a press conference at its corporate campus in Cupertino, California.
Apple Launched iPhone 5S and 5C with the fancy tagline of ”Forward Thinking”. It’s a cleverly designed tagline as per critics. For me it is a really deserving tagline for the new iPhone series.
Best fitting in its tagline, the new iPhone series is best of it’s innovation. Apple has always set a new benchmark in technology innovation. It has never upset its fans regarding the design of its products. And exactly what iPhone 5S is doing right now. It has set another milestone in the design of smartphones. What exactly it’s predecessor has done was an unprecedented feat. Compacting best of it’s time technology in a space that’s a mere 7.6 millimeters thin and 112 grams light was never an easy task, but Apple engineers meant it. And to your surprise iPhone 5S has much more features compared to iPhone 5 but exactly in the same space. Really no change in space and weight !!!!!!!
Apple has always been a source of technology and innovation for the world. From Mac to MacBook creativity has been superb. It was the Brand that introduced world to the power of touch. In the very first iPhone, Late Genius Steve Jobs introduced the world to the idea of touch as the most simple and powerful way to use a smartphone. Everything on your touch: touch to play music, touch to surf social media, touch to shot beautiful images.
And the latest 5S introduced another dimension to touch in form of FingerPrint Scanner- Touch ID, the fingerprint identity sensor. It let your unique fingerprint as your password. Its the big Boss of security. From now onward you need not require to memorize and enter passwords in order to use it.
iPhone series has always been admired for its seamless performance and battery life. Retaining the hierarchy, iPhone 5S has been built on “Energy Saving and faster performance ” mode.
Apple claims that the iPhone 5S architecture consist of a brand new chip A7and an all-new coprocessor : M7. iOS 7 has been updated to take advantage of the new 64-bit architecture.
The new A7 processor built on 64-Bit architecture includes over a billion transistors — double of the A6 processor in the iPhone 5, still having same size and weight. The 64-Bit architecture is new to the smartphone world. It’s up to twice faster than the previous iPhone 5 in both category: CPU and graphics performance. It has an brand-new image signal processor. It supports OpenGL ES 3.0, letting visual effects enabled which was previously possible only on desktops and gaming consoles. With all these performance updates, A7 is still energy efficient.
iPhone 5S includes an M7 motion co-processor, which keeps A7 free from device’s accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. It collects data from accelerometer, gyroscope and compass and Apps can directly interact with M7 for these data without keeping A7 constantly engaged. Apple claims this will enable new types of fitness and health apps, such as new Nike+ Move app that let you know how active you are.
The new iPhone 5S aperture is a little bit larger than the previous one. The f-number has been reduced from f/2.4 to f/2.2 (as lower is as better). The increased aperture size increases 33% light sensitivity. You can take multiple photos at one go and combine the sharpest parts of each with the image stabilization process.
With the increase in pixels size(not the number of pixels) by 15%, new pixel size measuring to 1.5 microns, image quality has been enhanced for the 8MP camera. Burst Mode has been added to features or you can use a “SloMo” camera app that eases you to shoot video up to 120 fps at 720p.
The new iPhone 5S seems to be priced in line with earlier models: $199 – 16GB, $299 – 32GB or $399 – 64GB — each with 2 year cellular contracts.
The new iPhone 5S will be available in 3 color ranges-black, gold or silver colors.
iPhone 5C comparatively seems to be a low budget attractive iPhone. It includes older A6 processor, an 8 MP camera and polycarbonate casing which gives it a handy look to attract users, a higher battery life compared to earlier iPhones.
iPhone 5c is available in multiple colors: white, blue, yellow, red and green. It also contains a front HD camera capable of taking sharper images. It also include iOS 7 giving it a better performance than iPhone 5.
iPhone 5C has been priced less than the iPhone 5 originally was: $99 for 16GB , $199 for 32GB with a 2 year cellular contract.
