Hello, my name is Nassim and today, I’m going to present to you the new iPhone, recently introduced by Apple on the market : The iPhone 5S

The iPhone 5S is the 7th iPhone by Apple. Weighing 112g against 140 grams for the iPhone 4S, it is lighter than its predecessor, and features a 4-inch display with a screen resolution of 640×1136p.
Moreover, it is more powerful thanks to its new A7 1,4 GHz Dual Core 64bit CPU and runs with the latest version of iOS, iOS 7.0.3. It’s the first smartphone to use a 64bit processor so it represents a revolution in terms of smartphone CPU.

With this operating system, Apple is focussed on the user because it is user-friendly. It includes new gadgets such as wifi and flashlight activation with a simple scrolling of the finger. This new iOS includes new shapes with flash colors which give it a facelift, thus making it comfortable to watch.

The greatest innovation in this iPhone is the fingerprint sensor. Apple takes the lead with this cutting-edge technology which enables the user to unlock the iPhone without typing a password or having to download a specific app for it.

As for its memory capacity, it’s still a classic of Apple as the device is available in three different versions, a 16, 32 or 64 GB version but the lack of expendable memory is still a major drawback. With 1GB of memory, the RAM is better.

As for the camera, Apple has not made any significant improvements to the 8MP rear camera, which is the same as the iPhone 4S one, but with 1.2MP, the front camera is better.

Moreover, it is now possible to use a 3G connection for FaceTime, which was previously only made possible through a Wi-Fi connection.

iPhone 5S uses a new kind of charger, the lightning charger, which is much smaller than previous ones, and a smaller SIM card, a nano sim. Apple always tries to make smaller and smaller devices.

As for Internet connection, this iPhone captures 4G, unlike the iPhone 4, which was not 4G-compatible and theWi-Fi connection has been improved.

The device comes in different colors, such as black, white and gold. This iPhone still is a good smartphone despite its price, which makes it far from being affordable. It costs 709€ for the 16GB version, 811€ for the 32GB one and 917€ in its 64GB version. The package includes new headphones in the Apple lineup, the « Earphones », which are very good quality headphones.
