iPhone 5s comes in three different colors Silver, Gold and Black and is powered by 64 Bit A7 processor which supports OpenGL ES version 3.0. Apple promises twice as much speed as compared to A6 and this processor features Twice the number of transistors as its predecessor. This phone also comes with new M7 chip which monitors motion data in real time, with help from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, thus power hungry Motion Apps will report to M7 chip rather than CPU to save battery. Don’t fret the 64 bit processor because the 32 bits Apps will also be compatible on this device.

The Display Size remains same at 4 Inch and the display is Apples signature Retina Display with 326 ppi. On the software front this phone will feature the latest iOS 7 operating system. iOS 7 has been engineered to maximize the performance of A7 chipset.

The finger print scanner or as apple calls it Touch ID uses a Saphire crystal together with the capacitive touch sensor, to take a high-resolution image of your fingerprint and intelligently analyze it to provide accurate readings from any angle

Apple has taken the camera features quite seriously this time. The new camera comes with 8 MP sensor and bigger 1.5 micrometer pixels for better low light performance. The a7 chipset will support twice as fast autofocus, automatic image stabilization and faster photo capture.

iPhone 5s introduces the new True Tone flash, the world’s first for any camera-that variably adjusts color and intensity for over 1,000 combinations, so photos taken with a flash appear more natural. The Front face time camera can deliver HD recording and better low light performance
