Apple iPhone 5S price, specifications announced

Apple iPhone 5S comes with high quality features for a premium look. Apple iPhone 5S will be the world’s first 64 bit mobile phone.

Apple’s latest flagship phone is made of aluminium.

The iPhone 5 also has an aluminium body.

The new iPhone 5S comes in 3 colors such as silver, gold, and space gray.

Its dual-core A7 CPU uses a 64-bit architecture (prior A-series CPUs are 32-bit), which opens the door to more built-in RAM and better performance for certain applications.

Apple declares the iPhone 5S, aided by both the A7 and iOS 7, will be up to 2x as fast than the iPhone 5. Graphics performance gains are larger in some instances (noteworthy in light of iOS 7’s game controller support).

The A7 is accompanied by an M7 motion co-processor that continuously measures motion data, and which Apple promises will enable new health/fitness apps.

Apple promises 10 hours of 3G talk time, 4G browsing time, and video playback time for the 5S. Standby is pegged at 250 hours.

The latest smartphone from Apple is made of a high-grade aluminum, with diamond-cut, chamfered edges.

Apple iPhone 5S will be the world’s first 64 bit mobile phone.

“The PC world made the transition from 32 bit to 64 bit and it took years. Today you’re going to see that Apple is going to do it on one day,” said Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Apple iPhone 5S will include Touch ID fingerprint scanner, Apple said on Tuesday.

The price of Apple iPhone 5S will be $199 for 16GB version and $299 for 32GB version along with 2-year contract with a US operator.

iPhone 5s will be available in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK on Friday, September 20.

Apple is offering a free iPhone 4S 8GB model with iPhone 5S.
