Well, it’s that time again, a new iPhone is ready to hit the market. But there’s a twist this time, TWO iPhones, which is great news.
The iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c are two different propositions. Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller has announced the iPhone 5C. The new device is made of plastic and has a 4-inch Retina display screen, and a hard-coated polycarbonate design, is steel reinforced and has a multi-band antenna. It comes in five colors: green, white, blue, pink, and yellow. The iPhone 5C will cost $99 for a 16GB model or $199 for a 32 GB model, with contracts. A colorful variety of cases will cost $29. The iPhone 5C will go on sale on Sept. 20, with pre-orders starting on Sept. 13.
The iPhone 5s has a 4-inch display and comes in silver, gold and a color called space gray. The hardware has been upgraded to an A7 chip, and is the first smartphone to be 64-bits. The new iPhone will include Touch ID — a fingerprint sensor built into the home button. The sensor scans sub-epidermal skin layers and will have 360-degree readability. It is about 170 microns thin, with 500 ppi resolution. The fingerprint sensor can be used to unlock the iPhone or make purchases. With this and many other amazing features, many of us will be lining up to get in on the action. The iPhone 5S will come in three models: 16 GB for $199, 32GB for $299 and 64GB for $399, with a contract. The phone will go on sale on Sept. 20.
