- 64GB internal memory
- Fingerprint Sensor
When Apple first released the original iPhone, although it took its lead from previous manufacturers, it did so in a way that was unheard of. Elegant, sexy, and visually stunning, the future was here. Several generations on, we reach the Apple iPhone 5S. Apple hit on the novel idea of bridging the gap between major releases by souping up the previous incarnation of their range. In truth, it was probably no more expensive to manufacture improved specs into the existing devices, given how technology costs fall rapidly over even a short time. But it also meant that users could upgrade their smartphone without the eye-watering costs of a brand new, next-gen version.
How Does it Compare to the iPhone 5?
Quite Different Actually. Think Fingerprint Sensor…
The Apple iPhone 5S is only related to the iPhone 5 in name, such as the upgrade in components that it contains. The size and shape are all but identical. Apple made significant changes under the hood to offer a bona fide upgrade option, even to iPhone 5 users. One of the biggest is the addition of a fingerprint sensor in the home button. Common on many even non-flagship models now, it was a massive innovation on the iPhone 5S.
Apple iPhone 5S Camera Details
What looks like the same 8MP rear camera is another big improvement in the 5S. It includes brand new internal elements and a whole new set of mechanics. Also, bigger pixels on the sensor mean better low-light performance. Add to that a new dual-LED flash, faster auto-focus, and faster image processing meaningless delay between shots. Oh, and Image Stabilization, slow-mo video capture, and an improved front camera for vastly improved FaceTime capabilities. This shows it is not just a minor upgrade of its older brother.
Connectivity as well
Compatibility with more 4G/3G networks than ever before means no worries about traveling overseas. This is especially true when you consider that the 5S, like all our smartphones, is fully unlocked for compatibility with networks in over 160 countries. It has dual-band Wi-Fi 8502.11b/g/n with hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS with Glonass for outstanding positioning accuracy. You now have everything you need to travel the globe and meet new and interesting people.
Apple iPhone 5S Battery and Processor Power
But all this would be useless if the Apple iPhone 5S couldn’t back it all up with a processor capable of providing the goods and a battery capable of carrying the load. Apple has gone that step further where raw computing power is concerned. As well as upgrading the 5S with a new A7 processor that is twice as fast as the A6 in the original iPhone 5, there’s a separate M7 processor included. Most background tasks cause a drain on the main processor which can create lag if too many apps are running at once. What the M7 does is take all those background tasks away and use its proprietary processing power to do what’s needed. It leaves the main CPU to do the “here-and-now” work. The battery powering all this will give you 10 hours of talk time or 250 hours of standby if needed.
And our Good Friend Siri
Apple threw in the lovely Siri as your ever-willing digital assistant. We can now easily say that iPhone 5S is a phone you can be sure will take you where you need to go. Siri will even show you a map.
