Steve Jobs heaven Apple Incorporation Apple finally unveiled the next generation  of the iPhone. As expected, the iPhone 5s  carries over most of the features of the iPhone 5,  but as is  the case with every “S” model,  there’s still a  marked upgrade in  regards to internals and some exterior  hardware.  Namely, the iPhone 5s  will include the A7 processor, an  improved  camera with dual-LED flash and a fingerprint sensor in  the device’s sapphire  glass home  button.

The iPhone 5s will ship in three  different finishes: “space gray,” silver, and the previously-rumored gold. While there’s only minor  changes between  the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s  aluminum bodies, the iPhone 5s also includes a redesigned home button. And after weeks of speculation, the iPhone 5s will in fact include a fingerprint scanner for  security. The days of the four digit passcode are gone, thanks to Touch ID built right into  the sapphire glass home button. A stainless steel  detection ring runs outside the button, which turns on the sensor to read your  fingerprint. Even better, Touch ID will allow you to authenticate for apps,  such as iTunes. No more entering that password!

The new A7 is the world’s  first 64-bit chip on a smartphone. According to Apple, the new  processor is 40-times faster than the original iPhone, and graphics are 56-times faster; the chip runs OpenGL|ES 3.0 like the  newer Nexus 7. According to the developers of Infinity Blade 3, the iPhone 5s  feels “five times faster” than its  predecessor. The newly revealed M7 chip will work alongside the A7, as a “motion coprocessor,”constantly measuring motion data from the gyroscope and  accelerometer. And thanks to an improved battery, we should see a nice upgrade in the iPhone 5s getting through the day. Apple stated the  iPhone 5s will offer 10 hours of 3G talk time, and 250 hours of standby.

The iPhone 5s also adds  an improved camera, even  if the megapixels  remain at only eight. A F2.2 aperture with a 15 percent larger sensor features 1.5 micron pixels and a five-element lens. The addition  of dual-LED flash  allows the camera to  offer what Apple referred to as “true tone flash” to capture both warm and cool tones, especially important for accurately portraying skin tones. As previously  announced, the iPhone 5S will  ship with the new iOS 7 mobile operating system. The iPhone 5s starts at $199 for a 16GB model with a two-year contract. The 32Gb  model is $299, and the 64GB model is $399. The iPhone 5s will also be available unlocked for $649, 16GB; $749, 32GB; and $849, 64GB. Apple has also  announced new cases for the device, available in multiple colors for $39. The iPhone 5s will be available on September 20.
