The future says hello with the proud successor of the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 5s—available in gold, silver, and space gray—is loaded with future forward features and is crafted with precision down to every detail. This version upgrade has, in place of the traditional iPhone button, a fingerprint scanner with 360-degrees of readability. This technology, tagged as Touch ID, allows you to unlock your phone and approve purchases on iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store by letting the device recognize your fingerprint, eliminating the hassle and danger of typed passwords. Under its hood is a super fast 64-bit A7 processor, making it the world’s first 64-bit phone. It also supports OpenGL ES version 3, delivering a superb visual experience. Its boosted iSight camera debuts with a duel-LED flash, burst mode, an image stabilizer, and a slow-mo feature. Everything comes in balance with the new iOS 7 running.
