For the iPhone 5s, Apple has developed a radical processor to take care of the phone’s processing needs. The 64-bit dual-core A7 processor is extremely powerful and seamlessly handles complex tasks. The processor handles multi-tasking at ease and offers gamers an experience that is console-style.
Apart from the interesting additions mentioned above, Apple has also added a feature to handle the battery requirements of users. It has introduced an M7 processor as a sidekick to the A7, and it takes care of the device’s battery life by processing information from motion-sensor devices like the accelerometer, gyroscope and the like. This lets the A7 processor perform its tasks hassle-free, and extends battery life.
TouchID technology is perhaps one of the major features to be included in the iPhone 5s. Apple have decided to offer better encryption and security features to its users and help them protect their content and data from unauthorized access. The TouchID is based on the finger print scanner technology, something that first of its kind on a smartphone. There is a sensor resting underneath the Apple’s epic home button (it has been revamped to suit this purpose). This sensor scans the fingerprints of users and grants access only after verifying. The TouchID is an alternate to the passcode feature which required people to key in their unique passcodes to unlock their phones. In this technology, users can simply place their finger over the sensor; and the sensor will scan the imprint and grant access.
Apple allows users to register up to five prints in the phone. One of the most interesting aspects about this technology is that it eliminates the requirement of the users to hold the phone straight or have their fingerprints scanned. The sensor works in any direction. As a part of the reregistration process, users have to spare just 30 seconds to get their fingerprints scanned and registered. This technology will offer a convenient solution for users to allow access to other members of the family. They can also restrict the usage of their family members, and access to certain applications and information.
On the storage front, the device sports just 32GB of internal storage capacity. Though there are a number of variants available in different storage capacities, if users cannot afford to go for the higher-end models, they have to make do with the 32GB variant. Also, the device lacks a slot for an external memory card, making it impossible to expand in terms of storage capacity.
Photography using the iPhone 5s will stay the same, as the company has not thrown in any surprises with the camera. The resolutions for the camera still remain 8MP for the iSight and 1.2MP for the Facetime lenses. iSight offers video recording in full HD and better sensitivity towards low light, and Facetime offers digital image stabilization features and a feature to take pictures while recording video.
Apple has one of the best visual qualities as far as the display is concerned. The 4 inch screen that is powered by retina display offers impeccable visual quality, where the images look crisp and vibrant on the 1136x640p screen. At 326 pixels per inch, the iPhone wraps in the maximum number of pixels allowing users to view even the tiniest detain in an image. Regardless of whether you use the phone to watch videos, surf through photos or play games, the iPhone 5s is simply brilliant.
The products offered by Apple are known for their look and feel. The body made of aluminium is impressive and gives a premium look to the iPhone 5s. The device, in silver, looks awe-inspiring – just like earlier iterations. Overall, the device is elegant and sleek, and offers ultimate performance to its users – the way it was intended to.
