Gold Apple iPhone 5s gets teardown treatment from iFixit

The Touch ID reveals itself as a series of capacitors that remembers the ridges on your finger. Five to ten images are required to keep a profile of your prints. And in case you're worried about your fingerprints being kept on file at Cupertino, fear not. The image is kept locally on the phone. The markings on the 8MP iSight camera indicate that it is a Sony built sensor, as expected.
iFixit says that the the internal design of the Apple iPhone 5s shows "some streamlining and optimization in its internal construction." Check out more details of the Apple iPhone 5s teardown below.

I've read reports of 2 gigs of RAM. Ifixit is this correct?

I'm 99% sure it has 2GB of RAM.

It is likely still 1GB, there was no mention of it from Apple and last I checked, it was cost cutting time at Apple. So don't get your hopes up. Also, Apple doesn't up the ram on the "S" iteration of their phones (only on the 3gs but that was a long time ago and technically that wasn't an "S" iteration step for Apple since 2 went to 3).

Alan, Sir...what's with the 'golden' headline?? Obviously iFixit reviewed a normal iPhone 5S. Should i expect another tear-down article for the normal iPhone 5S? Cause you, i and everyone know it's the same thing except for the color. "Apple iPhone 5S gets teardown treatment..." would sound and look much better.
