New Apple videos show off features on Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C
Apple has released a trio of new videos just a few hours after Tuesday's introduction of the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C. The first video discusses the Touch ID sensor. In solemn tones, Jony Ive says that the Apple iPhone 5S is the manufacturers most "refined iPhone to date" and that Apple considered every component to make sure that it enhanced the user's experience. Later on, we see the fingerprint sensor in action as it quickly unlocks an iPhone 5S and facilitates the purchase of an app on iTunes. Every time you use Touch ID, it gets better at reading your prints.

The second video is all about the new iSight camera on the Apple iPhone 5S. The f/2.2 aperture combined with the 8MP backlit CMOS sensor means larger pixels allowing the entry of 33% more light, resulting in better shots under low-light conditions. Speaking of low light, when you press the shutter under those conditions, the camera actually snaps four quick shots of the same scene, merging them to reduce blur and resulting in a great photo. In very dark conditions, the iPhone 5S measures the color temperature allowing the dual flash to light up the area with just the right amount of white and amber light.

The Apple iPhone 5C is "beautifully unapologetically plastic," says Jony Ive in the third video, stating that in some cases, multiple parts have been reduced to one plastic one. It's more capable and colorful than the Apple iPhone 5, notes the executive. The colorful, lower-priced version of the iPhone is the star of the third video below. See what a single piece of polycarbonate can turn into.

Pre-orders for both models start September 13th with the Apple iPhone 5S and the Apple iPhone 5C launching on September 20th.

The iPhone is a nice basic phone and usually reliable if it doesn\\\'t explode or electrocute a person, but it\\\'s got too many features and convenience I\\\'d miss from android not to mention the customization and the different manufacterers experience I can select from whether it be Sony, Samsung, LG, Moto, etc. That being said, the new fingerprint scanner being the home button is pretty cool (even though it\\\'s not exactly original) and I think a black/gold version would have been nice to see, but it\\\'s not like I\\\'d get it anyway lol. Apple is going to win many people with the new gold version because let\\\'s face it, people tend to judge a book by its cover even if they shouldn\\\'t.

iPhone 5C an unworthy iPhone, to kill Apple\'s reputation of producing premium phone.
iPhone 5S is what i like:-
finger print scanner
64bit processor (not so useful today)
Improved 8mp camera (8mp is enough, and i also love iPhones camera)
Apple didn\'t disappointed me that much since my expectations weren\'t that high.

Apple (and a lot of its consumers) care a lot about the premium quality design of the Apple iPhone the most, a common consumer really doesn't care about the specifications as much, only when it comes to the camera :/

Tell me, where are these fingerprint data going? To who?! It's a great idea, but the NSA/Intelligence Companies can easily benefit from this, and that's a bad thing :/ An extra invasion of our delicate privacy! Thank god they aren't allowing App Developers to access these fingerprints!

Your fingerprint will be stored safely and securely deep inside the A7 chip. Perhaps you are deaf

Oh, so you think that fingerprint isn\'t being sent to some intelligence/Apple database?

How many US citizens don't have their fingerprints already on file? How is any government agency going to benefit from something that they should already have? Besides, they're fingerprints... what are they going to do with them? Oh no, they know what the ends of my fingers look like...

Did you see the Apple guy trying to hype the iPhone's camera features.
I would have loved to have heard what he was really thinking. "Nokia camera aside, this is the best camera on the market. Who needs all those pixels and details. Nobody needs to zoom that much on a smartphone".

From my understanding, the pre-orders for the i5C start on the 13th and the pre-orders for the i5S start on the 20th, according to Apple's site:

"Order iPhone 5s
beginning September 20.
From $199"

"Pre-order iPhone 5c
beginning September 13 for delivery
beginning September 20. From $99"

Just to let you guys know if you plan on pre-ordering one or the other.

Ugh, it's like the same thing every friggin year...

"Blah Blah Blah, we got a good camera, blah blah blah aperture, blah more light."

"From the beginning, this that iPhone experience, no other way to be done, blah blah blah"

Really, you can just watch the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S intro videos and you already get the gist of the 5S and 5C.
