Apple has upgraded the iPhone 5S with an A7 chip having a 64 bit architecture that is accompanied by an M7  motion co-processor that supports the Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass. The battery associates with the M7 motion co-processor instead of directly with the A7 chip and saves power. iPhone 5S is in spotlight for its fingerprint scanner that is called ”Touch ID” by apple. Touch ID recognizes owner’s fingerprint and unlocks the device. Apple aims at making the security system easier as Apple’s lock code is not used by half of the iOS users.

The all new iPhone 5C is the one you’ve never seen before,  or held it as stated by Apple. While it wasn’t possible to build the iPhone 5C in different colors using a steel material,  to do the color justice Apple has used plastic to build the iPhone 5C with a steel reinforced frame that also acts as an antena to the device. iPhone 5C is unveiled in 5 different colors. Both the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5 share an A6 chip.
