Apple introduces the iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C
Yesterday, Apple launched two new handsets; the high-end iPhone 5S and the more affordable iPhone 5C. Apple have never launched two new devices at the same time before, so this event marked a change of strategy for them.
The iPhone 5S ranges in price from £549.00 for a 16GB model to £709 for the 64GB and is available in three colours; silver, gold and space grey. New features include A7 chip, a Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor, ultra-fast wireless, an iSight camera and new operating software iOS 7. The main development for the iPhone 5S is the Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor which allows you to unlock your phone and provides authentication for purchase from Apple’s online marketplace. This features allows Apple to stand out from their Android competitors as it may be the solution for the significant problem of mobile device theft.
The iPhone 5S launches on the 20th September around the world and it is the first time that China has been included in the first wave of sales.
The iPhone 5C has been developed as the ‘affordable’ iPhone but is available at a price of £469.00 for 16GB. It is available in 5 colours: red, yellow, green, blue and white with a plastic back in the colour of your choice. This device was expected to be slightly more affordable than it actually is, leaving people disappointed.
