After months of speculation, Apple has finally released the much awaited iPhone 5s. Every iPhone brings some new features with it and the same can be said about the iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 5s has the all new A7 64-bit processor. It is the world’s first phone to have a 64-bit architecture. The iPhone 5s will be faster than any other previous editions of the iPhone. The new processor will make sure that all the animations will run smoother without any lag and thus improve the performance of the phone even better. Apple went on to say about this new processor, “the other guys aren’t even talking about this”.
iPhone 5s also features M7 coprocessor which is designed to make the device more efficient. It helps in offloading work from the main A7 chip which results in faster performance and increased battery life.
Along with the new processor, the iPhone 5s also comes with a fingerprint sensor which will be known as the “Touch ID”. The Home button will be used to scan the fingerprints. It eliminates the need to use the passwords for unlocking the device. The fingerprint sensor can read multiple fingers and not just the thumb. Also, the square icon that was present on the home button will not be seen in the iPhone 5s.
The camera in the iPhone 5s is also an improvement over the iPhone 5. The primary camera is an 8-megapixel, F2.2 wide aperture lens affair, and features 1080p video recording at 30 frames per second, and up to 120 frames per second at 720p. The iPhone 5s has a dual-LED flash, which improves low-lighting shots. Apple has also introduced Slo-Mo with the new iPhone 5s, which lets you slow down parts of your video. Along with this, the iPhone 5s will also support the burst mode feature to take multiple shots and never miss a scene. The iPhone 5s also features auto image stabilization. The Slo-Mo and the Burst mode are exclusive to the iPhone 5s.
