This morning Apple announced the next batch of new iPhones, the new iPhone 5s and 5c. The 5c is a new version of the iPhone 5 that has better battery life, a new plastic outer body and comes in a range of different colours. Nothing too exciting here but the iPhone 5c makes for an excellent entry level smart phone with pricing on 2 year contracts starting at $99.
The real exciting news from the event though was the announcement of the iPhone 5c. New features begin with a new A7 processor, M7 motion coprocessor, a fingerprint identity sensor called Touch ID, new iSight 8MP camera with a larger sensor for improved photo quality, new HD face time camera, better battery and pre-loaded with iOS 7. Unfortunately though the 5s shares the same form factor and screen size as its predecessor. I was really looking forward to an iPhone 6 with a new design and larger screen. That said though if your in the market for a new iPhone the 5s looks to be a pretty impressive device.
Both the iPhone 5c and 5s will be available on September 20th, for existing iPhone 5 and 4s owners iOS 7 will be available September 18th.
