According to the trend setup by Apple, iPhone 5 which was launched last year is now upgraded with a newer iPhone called iPhone 5S. Apple didn’t change any element in the design but this new and upgraded iPhone will bring a new user experience.
Apple iPhone 5S has got lots of exciting new and unique features which are still not available in any other smartphone. I’m writing down here all impressive features of iPhone 5S or you can also consider them as top reasons to buy it.
Design and build quality
These two are the main factors why Apple iPhone 5 got the success. It was all about luxurious feel and industrial level design. This time, Apple took forward these two factors further. Design wasn’t changed but building material is new which is impacting the design.
Apple has manufactured iPhone 5S in three different colors which are Space gray, silver and gold. The gold version looks best and remaining two is still better. No other manufacturer has provided this much standard of design and build quality yet and if you’re looking for a smartphone that looks luxurious then iPhone 5S is the only best option for you.
First 64 bit architecture – A7 chipset
Apple introduced 64 bit architecture for the first time in smartphone industry and now it’s one of the unique features of the device. The all new A7 chipset and iOS 7 are ready to work on 64 bit architecture and soon all apps available at iTunes store will be upgraded.
The combination of 64 bit architecture and new A7 chipset provides two times speedier processing and two times speedier graphics performance than previous chipset (A6). This means now the iPhone users won’t find any lag in performance and game play will be a superb experience.
In the era of quad-core and even octa-core chipsets, Apple has again shown that still a dual-core chipset can do a lot if optimized well by the software.
Dedicated motion co-processor
Apple has introduced a new co-processor called M7 for enhancing the motion performance. The new device can now sense whether you’re still or running or walking and this will provide more detailed data to the health and fitness apps.
There are lots of apps available for smartphones which provides health and fitness monitoring features but the motion co-processor in this new iPhone will let such apps gather more detailed data. Apple also previewed the new Nike app that was working perfectly on the new architecture.
If you want to use your smartphone to monitor your health and fitness then none other than iPhone 5S is best for you.
Fresh new look – iOS 7
Apple already announced iOS 7 in the previous event and now it will be available in stable version with the newer iPhone. The iOS 7 comes with fresh and unique design and the way OS use to work is now changed.
iOS 7 has lots of new features and a brand new look which has been already appreciated in its beta versions. The notification centre has been introduced along with new lock screen, multi tasking window and lots of new ways of doing the old things.
With previous iOS versions users were looking for jailbreaking their devices to do customizations but now as the Apple has provided a fresh new look so users don’t need to think of jailbreaking.
Apple also announced that the iWork app suite will now be available on all devices operating on iOS 7 which means it will be available for free on the iPhone 5S too. The iWork app suite brings Apple’s best productivity apps.
The rear camera quality of Apple iPhone 5 is still well known but Apple has improved the quality further in iPhone 5S. Apple has not increased the mega pixels but they have increased the sensor and aperture size which has resulted in increase in quality.
The rear camera got a true tone flash which is embedded with a white and an amber LED flash. Both flash works simultaneously and adjust the light ratio accordingly. The main motive behind using two different colored LED flashes is that users should get a picture with perfect light combination even in low light.
As the iOS is new so the camera software is also new and it comes with lots of other new features. There are lots of customization options available which can be used to edit pictures within the device only.
These days, taking pictures with smartphone and sharing them on social networks is getting trendy and with iPhone 5S you’ll be sharing best quality of pictures.
This feature is the most unique and best one according to me. iPhone 5S can be unlocked or locked with your fingerprints. The traditional home button of the iPhone is now provided with a fingerprint scanner which scans and stores your finger prints that can be used for the security purpose of the device.
You can not only lock your device with your fingerprint but you can also use it to provide access before buying any app so that no other person can buy any app without your permission. As fingerprints of every human being is unique so no one can access to your fingerprints and it’s also an easier way of securing our smartphone rather than traditional pin codes or the pattern locks (Android).
Apple also explained that fingerprints of users will not be stored anywhere as users will think of the privacy and misuse of their fingerprints. The A7 chipset has got your fingerprint saved which isn’t accessible to anyone, not even to the service centre engineer. This is how fingerprints of every user remains protected.
You can watch this video (officially by Apple) down here which is explaining this security issue with the Touch ID.
With improvement in performance, camera quality and OS functionality, iPhone 5S still manages to provide better battery life. Apple is offering 10 hours of talk time on 3G network while the standby time increased to 250 hours which was 225 hours in iPhone 5.
This means you’re getting upgraded iPhone without compromising on the battery life and so battery life becomes another top reason to buy it.
One more feature which got left is that Apple iPhone 5S supports more LTE bands now which means data connectivity is even faster. Apple has again shown to all other manufacturers that how a smartphone should be manufactured and why iPhone is always on top but users who were waiting for an iPhone with bigger display still have to wait till next iPhone gets announced.
