Apple iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c: all you need to know
After several months worth of attention were paid as tribute towards the upcoming iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, we finally saw Apple take the drapes off of its two new arrivals just a few days ago.
Now, depending on where you stand in the whole Apple against the world nonsense, your take on the new iPhones will vary, sometimes wildly. Which is to say, that while facts are facts, both sides will have their own truth – there are those who are already whispering doom, claiming Apple has lost its mojo, while others blindly “see” the usual appeal and quality we've come to expect from Cupertino. If you fall into either one of these two 'categories', it's probably unlikely that the round-up below will affect your opinion much. But those of you who are willing to roll up their sleeves, get dirty, and genuinely want to see the new iPhones for what they really are: you have come to the right place.
Significantly better performance, courtesy of the new Apple-designed 64-bit A7 chip, camera improvements , and a Home key doubling up as a fingerprint scanner – those are the most notable hardware changes in the new, more evolved iPhone 5s. Looking at the iPhone 5c, we see a phone that is the harbinger of a strategy shift at Apple's HQ, though what Cupertino's exact thinking behind the polycarbonate near copy of the iPhone 5 was, remains to be seen. In terms of software, both devices are coming with iOS 7 out of the box, which marks an important step for Apple, a first since the concept of iDevices popped into Steve Jobs mind – this is the first real revamp of the OS, and it brings along a load of new goodies.
