iPhone-5S-Coque-908x775

We expect the upcoming iPhone 5S to look a lot like the iPhone 5, so its biggest changes will all be internal. We’re likely to see a faster processor and better graphics, an improved camera, and if we’re really lucky, a fingerprint scanner.

iFixit Tears Down The 4th Gen iPad: Spot The Difference
