Apple iPhone 5S Introduction

The iPhone 5S came in almost same size and design as the iPhone 5 but features improved specifications and is available in three colours: Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. The iPhone 5s has a 64-bit A7 processor which is as twice as fast as the previous generation. The new 5S also incorporates a "Touch ID" capacitive fingerprint sensor built into the home button that's capable of scanning sub-epidermal skin layers. Unlike older generation iPhones, the 5S still, surprisingly, runs on the latest version of iOS.


Just as the iPhone 4S was almost indistinguishable from the iPhone 4, the 5S has only its rather modest golden finish and TouchID to differentiate it from the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S's dimensions are 123.8x58.6x7.6mm, and it weighs just 112g. That's the same as the iPhone 5. The 4-inch Retina display has the same 1136x640 resolution as the iPhone 5 (and 5C) and is a decent screen. The 5S doesn't support as many LTE bands as the newer iPhones, but you'll still be able to use it in most countries on 3G.

Build Quality

The iPhone 5S remains a beautifully made and desirable smartphone and it's an improvement on its predecessor in practically every way. Apple doesn't skimp on premium materials here, as the metal body and Gorilla Glass covered screen still look and feel fantastic. Weighing just 112g, which still feels almost impossibly light when you pick up the smartphone for the first time, the iPhone 5S is incredible to look at and hold.

Key Features:

  • Apple iPhone 5S is furnished with a 4-inch 16M-color LED-backlit IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 1136px resolution, 326 ppi.
  • It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, fingerprint-resistant coating.
  • iPhone 5S is motorised by a 1.3 GHz dual-core ARMv8 64-bit CPU, PowerVR G6430 GPU, 1GB of RAM, Apple A7 SoC iOS 7 and iCloud integration.
  • The 5S is equipped with a 8 MP autofocus camera, 1/3'' sensor size, True Tone dual-LED flash, touch focus, digital image stabilization, 1080p video recording at 30fps, 720p@120fps slow motion videos
  • Apple iPhone 5S come with a built-in storage of 16GB.
  • It has a 1.2MP secondary front-facing camera, 720p video recording.
  • The Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the Apple iPhone 5S is embedded into home button.

Touch ID

The Touch ID fingerprint scanner lets you unlock the phone in an instant by touching it. It's a convenient feature which is more secure than the four-digit passcode most iPhone owners use. TechCrunch wrote, "At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss the fingerprint sensor as a whiz-bang feature designed to attract eyeballs and do little else. But this isn’t that. The fingerprint sensor, unlike some other questionable recent smartphone tech like gesture control or eye-tracking, doesn’t feel like a gimmick or tech demo; it feels like a mature feature that actually enhances the overall experience of using an iPhone in a noticeable way that you encounter very frequently."


The iPhone 5S has a front-facing FaceTime HD camera and a rear-facing 8MP camera. AllThingsD wrote, "All my pictures were slightly sharper than on the iPhone 5 and low-light pictures were much less washed out by the flash. The camera app has been improved, with a new burst mode that takes many shots quickly and then picks the best ones, and a slow-motion video feature that lets you choose parts of an action sequence to slow down. It worked seamlessly."
