As many skeptics have already said after the release of the iPhone 5s there are not many differences visually that you can find, taking a quick glance. As most of the changes to the iPhone 5s are not cosmetic but internal. Some of these features include, a new 64-bit processor, finger print scanner, a 2 LED camera system, which Apple refers to as a “True Tone Flash” (allowing up to 1000 different variations), a newly updated and improved IOS7 which was designed to run on the 64-bit processor now included with the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5S will be available in three colors (Gold, Silver, and Slate Gray); which will give Apple the chance to refer to their phone as the ‘Gold Standard’ of cell phone choices, literally. Also a statement released with the iPhone 5S, Apple will be no longer offering the iPhone 5, in a way to ‘force’ the 5S and 5C into mainstream. Some other options released with the iPhone 5S and 5C are two new docking stations. 5S and 5C into the mainstream. The iPhone 4S will still be available in a single choice with a contract from your carrier. In keeping Apple’s toes on the bleeding edge of what the consumer is looking for, they have also released the iPhone 5C or (Color) as it will probably be referred to in the future, with the up to 30 different variations of color’s and color cases that you can choose from. As Apple released with this phone, they are aiming more at the 13-23 age range with the iPhone 5C and not at the older more technology driven crowd of the Generation Y, who are more into what the phone can actually do, then what it looks like (although this is important as well).

“They have Lightning connectors in the dock’s recessed pocket. You can connect the dock to your computer via a USB-to-Lightning cable and use it to sync and charge your phone, or you can connect the dock directly to an electrical outlet using the power adapter that comes with the phone. There’s also a line-out jack on the back of the docks — the headphone jack on the iPhone is now on the bottom, next to the Lightning port, so you cover the jack by placing the phone in a dock. This line-out jack lets you hook up headphones or speakers while docked.”
iOS 7 will teach your iPhone about your fingerprint. You can use it to unlock your phone and to purchase software and media from Apple’s digital storefronts. Apple says the fingerprint information will never be made available to any other software on the device. It’s only used to unlock the phone and verify your ID to Apple during purchases.
