Today Apple’s Phil Schiller announced the new iPhone 5s in three colors: silver, gold, and a new “space gray.” The 5s comes with the same design as the iPhone 5, but it sports a tweaked home button with Touch ID. A new 64-bit A7 chip gives it 56% better graphics performance, and a drastically improved camera.
“iPhone 5s is the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, delivering desktop class architecture in the palm of your hand,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone 5s sets a new standard for smartphones, packed into its beautiful and refined design are breakthrough features that really matter to people, like Touch ID, a simple and secure way to unlock your phone with just a touch of your finger.”
Another huge feature is the M7 motion coprocessor, a location-aware tracker that partners like Nike will use to create better fitness apps.
Pricing is the same as the iPhone 5, and in-store availability begins September 20th.
