Apple iPhone 5S: all new features review

Apple iPhone 5S: all new features review
The folks from Cupertino pulled a typical Apple yesterday, when they outed the bi-annual iPhone 5s upgrade that keeps the same chassis as its predecessor, but adds a carefully crafted new feature or two to make the handset stand out for the next few quarters.

This year the big thunder comes in the form of a 64-bit A7 chipset, which seems to be ahead of its app development times, but is a first for a smartphone nonetheless. Same goes for the fingerprint sensor embedded right into a brand new sapphire home button, which, however, won't be doing anything more useful than unlocking the phone and authorizing iTunes payments, as Apple won't store your fingerprint readings on its servers, and 3rd party developers won't be allowed to use it as authentication method - there goes that vast mobile payment network we were jonessing about.

Apple threw in a few other notable upgrades, mainly in the camera and connectivity departments, so check out the full laundry list of new features that are coming our way with the iPhone 5s in the slideshow below, starting off with the exterior design novelties, and moving to the changes under the hood.
