This is the iPhone 5S
Well the big moment has finally arrived. After months of rumors, reports and speculation, Apple has just taken the wraps off of its new flagship smartphone: the
It’s a familiar-looking handset with a bevy of upgrades—including a new 64-bit A7 processor, and a handful of new features. And yes, it looks like there’s a new gold colorway…
For the most part, it looks like all of the rumors have been spot on. There’s 2 new colors: gold and ‘Space Grey,’ and there’s a pill-shaped LED flash on the backside of the handset.
On the inside, the phone is running a brand new system-on-a-chip called the A7—it’s the first 64-bit processor used in a smartphone. And it’s really fast—over twice as fast as A6.
It also appears that there’s a new component called the M7. It’s a “motion co-processor,” and it works alongside the A7 measuring things like the accelerometer, compass, and gyroscope.
Battery life doesn’t appear to be much of an improvement over previous models. Apple is quoting 10 hours of 3G talk time, 10 Hours of LTE browsing.
