iPhone 5s, the first mobile phone with 64-bit CPU, introduced today at Apple’s Fall 2013 media event.

iPhone 5S gold standard of phones

Phil Schiller introduced the iPhone 5s. It comes in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray:

“It is the gold standard in phones”

Three major features of iPhone 5s follows.

iPhone 5S 64-bit processor

1) iPhone 5s performance

  • A7, the first 64-bit CPU for a phone
  • Runs 32-bit and 64-bit apps
  • OpenGL EL for console-level graphics
  • “Epic was able to convert Infinity Blade to 64-bit in two hours”
  • M7 motion co-processor continually measure data from accelerometer, gyroscope and compass. Paves way for new health and fitness apps
  • Up to 10 hours 3G talk time

  • Takes multiple photos and choose the sharpest image automatically

  • Image stabilization

3) Security

  • Forget passcode or password. iPhone 5s uses “Touch ID” sensor, which is smaller than human hair but can scan fingerprint at 500 pixels per inch
  • scans sub-epidermal skin layers
  • Censor in home button
  • Touch ID can be used to unlock phone and make iTunes purchases
  • read in any finger orientation
  • Other apps don’t get access to the fingerprint
  • Fingerprints are never uploaded to Apple’s servers or backed up to iCloud

Prices of iPhone 5S:

  • iPhone 5S 16GB: $199 with contract
  • iPhone 5S 32GB: $299 with contract
  • iPhone 5S 64GB: $399 with contract

Apple-made leather cases including a (Product) Red one is available at: $39

iPhone 4S will be the free iPhone at carriers. I guess iPhone 5 is cut and replaced with iPhone 5C.

There’s no pre-order for iPhone 5s. Pre-order for the iPhone 5c starts this Friday September 13, 2013. Both new 2013 iPhone 5s and 5c will go on sale a week later in US, Australia, Canada China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, and UK.
