The iPhone 5s is the new, exciting phone from Apple with a brand new operating system, a great camera and fingerprint scanner for security. It’s also the world’s first 64 bit phone – making it the fastest smartphone available. Times have changed since Apple first brought the iPhone to the market. A huge range of smartphones are now available, many of which boast impressive specs and constant improvements. Apple has risen to the challenge admirably with the creation of the iPhone 5S, which, boosted by the iOS 7 update, provides long-time fans with some exciting upgrades and important improvements.
Sharp Colour and Display
The display resolution is impressive as ever at 1136 x 640 with great colour reproduction and a clear, vivid image. The screen has viewing angles that can outperform almost any other phone. The screen size of the iPhone 5S hasn’t grown from the 4-inches of the iPhone 5, with opinions remaining divided on whether a bigger screen would have benefited the iPhone or not.
There hasn’t been much of a chance in the look and feel of the iPhone with this update, although this isn’t generally a problem for most Apple fans. The trademark simplicity and sleek, lightweight feel of the iPhone has been retained on the 5S, with the addition of optional space grey or gold finishes. The glass and aluminium challis give a high-quality look to the phone, with the new finishes just providing a refreshing extra upgrade for those who are after something new from the 5S without abandoning the desired Apple aesthetic.
iOS 7 Upgrade
The most drastic changes found on this new model can be attributed to iOS 7, which has brightened and invigorated the display and interface of the 5S. It has also improved efficiency and speed across the device, providing for a more cohesive and enhanced user experience. The browser functionality and look has been improved markedly, and the internet runs fast and with impressive fluidity.
If you’re in the UK, you’ll soon be able to access a 4G connection on the iPhone 5S on Vodafone, O2 and Three, which although providing a little more hard work for your battery, will quicken your connection up to record speeds on this device.
New Touch ID
Touch ID is an exciting new feature that really sets the iPhone 5S apart from its predecessors and its rival smartphones on the market. This feature allows you to unlock your iPhone with just a touch of your fingertip, rather than typing in a passcode. You can also lock and unlock your iTunes with Touch ID. This enhances the security of your phone while providing a really fun and novel development in smartphone technology.
Increased Camera Quality
With other smartphones are also upping their game, Apple has risen to the challenge by increasing their pixel size on the 5S by around 15%, which has made for an enhanced image quality that leaps ahead from the iPhone 5. You can capture images at high speeds with the burst mode feature, and the True Tone dual-LED flash has also improved the colour, depth and overall look of your pictures. For creative types, there’s a fun and exciting new addition to the video camera with the slow motion option, which allows you to slow your videos down to 120 fps and play with the speeds through editing.
When it comes to apps, Apple is still way ahead of the game with over 900,000 to choose from in its App Store and no signs of slowing down on the 5S. You can now download 3 apps at a time, allowing you to quickly access a huge variety of what the App Store has to offer. If you’re in need of some office software to work on the go, you can download apps that should provide stiff competition to the Microsoft Office apps available on Windows phones, allowing you to edit documents on the Pages word processor and organize your accounts on Numbers. Just make sure you’re aware that iOS 7 will lead to some changes in the running of the device, so be sure your existing apps from previous iPhones are up to date to keep them running as they should.
Best phone I have ever owned. It has the best speeds to cope with all the needs you have. 64gb highly recommended although must have some kind of case on phone at all times, prone to scratches on the chassis
The perfect phoneiPhone 5s
I don't know what I did before the iPhone. Now, I hardly even need my computer, as long as I have my iPhone 5 with me, I can get everything done.
