And its here! Apple iPhone 5S! Apple announced the new models of iPhone via the live Apple Event hosted on September 10. For the past, we were checking out the rumours of the new iPhone and mostly it was correct — except for some features. I am not sure, but I guess Apple might had released the correct rumours as of business techniques to get more sales — I am not sure, but it looks like so. Anyway let’s get back to our points.
Apple iPhone 5S
Well, like others — I was also following the live blog from CNET & Engadget, First of all — Nice commentary from CNET, guys in there had done commenting about the Apple event in a good way. People was eagerly calling to CNET’s live phone to speak about what they feel or the comments said about the new Apple’s devices before Apple launched the event.
We shall now see the difference of iPhone 5 vs iPhone 5S

In short, I could say that Apple iPhone 5 has increased its performance to an A7 chip — which is the only mobile platform processor which is 64 bit in architecture. But, Now a days, App developers needs to reprogram their codes using the new updated xcode to give superior performance. As of now, Only games & high demanding processors applications will improve — Well basic apps like Facebook, WhatsApp would be running as 32 bit, but it might be running 64 bit after the developers updates the codes.
If I was a non-geeky person, then I would say — Apple just released a phone with upgraded performance which is useless right now, Improved back camera slightly, Battery life would be the same, finger print scanner is cool for fraud protection and yeah the iOS 7 with its good looks and functions from Android like Control Center. After talking with some people, 80% said they would be buying a Samsung Galaxy S4 or Xperia Z Ultra rather than Apple iPhone 5S
Planning to Upgrade your iPhone? My another article here explains it all. My personal advice is to wait for iPhone 6 — it would be a hit for sure!
