What makes the iPhone 5S so special

Price

The iPhone 5S costs the same on contract as the iPhone 5 did at launch: $199 for the 16GB version, $299 for 32GB, and $399 for 64GB. Protective cases that Apple made specifically for the device will cost $39 each, and you had better believe there will be a flurry of third-party cases. It will go on sale September 20 in US, UK, China, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and Singapore and 100 countries on 270 carriers by December.

Appearance & Hardware


The phone comes in three colors; gold, space/champagne gray and white aluminium. The shape, screen size (4 inches) and the infamous retina display (1,136x640-pixel resolution and a pixel density of 326 ppi) stays the same as the iPhone 5. The biggest addition has to be the A7 processor which promises a speed 56 times that of the first iPhone. A 64 bit chip that's backward compatible to 32 bit apps, M7 co-processor for the gyrometer, accelerometer and compass data.

Fingerprint Scanner


The major selling point on the phone, technically called Touch ID Sensor is integrated into the home button and adds some classy materials with its sapphire crystal topper and "stainless-steel detection ring. It scans the sub-epidermal skin layers and has 360 readability meaning functions normally regardless of orientation.

It's main purpose is to serve as a replacement for the four digit security lock on previous iPhones but it can also be used to authenticate the purchase of an app and other iTunes content. While it's cool and all, it's not a compulsory feature i.e. users can also revert back to the 4 digit security key if they prefer.
