The will-they-really gold color for the device made the cut, as did black and "space grey."
Color is one thing, but on the inside the iPhone 5S' specs are rocking an A7 chip, a 64-bit monster of a processor.The first-of-its-kind chip packs twice as many transistors in a piece of silicon roughly the same size as the A6.
iPhone 5S specs
iOS 7 has been updated for 64-bit too. A native 64-bit kernal, libraries and drivers are all part of the package.
According to Apple, the iPhone 5S' CPU is 40 times faster than the one belonging to the original iPhone, with half of the performance boost coming courtesy of the A7. The CPU, meanwhile, is idle.
Meanwhile, it's introduced a part called the M7, a motion coprocesosr that continually measures motion data, includes an accelerometer, gyroscope, and enables a new generation of heath and fitness apps.
Power-wise, the iPhone 5S will allow for 10 hours of 3G talk time, and 10 hours of LTE browsing.
When it comes to the average person's desire to simply "take a picture," Apple created its own five-element lens with a F2.2 aperture. The sensor includes a 15% larger active area, and pixels (taking the bigger is better route) amount to 1.5 microns.
iOS 7, by the way, has been designed to take advantage of this new sensor.
