Is it time to upgrade to a new phone? Even if it’s not, the Apple iPhone 5s is a tantalizing toy. Check out what Apple enthusiasts are saying about the new Apple iPhone 5s.
The huge variety of features put this phone way ahead of its time. For one thing, the operating system is built specifically for the 64-bit A7 chip, which makes it fast and reliable. The A7 chip also has a coprocessor chip, the M7, which acts kind of like a sidekick to the A7 chip and measures motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. This means that fitness apps to track physical activity can access data from the M7 chip without draining your battery power.
The housing of the phone is built with sleek aluminum and glass, as well as sapphire crystal in the Home button and protecting the camera lens. One of the most exciting and innovative features is the fingerprint identity sensor to protect the information stored on your phone as well as give you fast, easy access to your phone whenever you need it. All you have to do is put your finger on the Home button, and voila – your phone unlocks without having to type in a pass code. The fingerprint identity technology can also approve purchases from the iTunes Store, the App Store and the iBooks store so you won’t need to enter your pass code. Additionally, you can enroll multiple fingerprints so that your phone can readily identify the people you trust to unlock your phone.
The iSight camera, built right into the iPhone, has myriad special features all on its own. For example, the auto image stabilization will help you get a clearer picture from shaky hands or moving objects, and the live video zoom allows you to zoom in up to 3x while you’re still recording.
As with its predecessor, the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s is remarkably thin and light. All of the amazing features of this phone are packed into a body that is only 7.6 millimeters thick and weighs only 112 grams. Painstaking care was even put into the case designs. Cases are made from premium hand-selected leather and snugly surround the volume buttons, the on/off switch, and the chamfered edge in a way that protects your phone without interfering with its use. Inside of each leather frame is a soft microfiber lining that protects your phone from scratching. The leather itself is dyed in six bright colors to choose from.
Whatever you want, chances are, there’s an app for it. The iPhone 5s comes with dozens of apps already built in. There are some standard apps like the camera, photos, text messaging and calendar, but there are also more unique apps that you can only get with the iPhone.
For example, the GarageBand app lets you create your own music right on your phone. You can use the “smart instrument” sounds with just a touch of a finger, or you can record live audio with the built-in microphone. The GarageBand program allows you to record, edit and mix up to 32 different tracks and share them with anyone you like.
Another useful app is the Pages app, which can help you produce professional-looking documents, newsletters or reports for work or school. You can choose a custom template, add colorful tables and charts, and easily share them with colleagues, professors or friends.
Looking for even more apps? You can always visit the App Store, which is just a few clicks from the home screen. There, you can download all kinds of fun and practical apps ranging from simple to-do lists to silly games to pass the time.
