Design

iPhone 5s is purposefully imagined and meticulously considered as well as precision crafted. It’s not just a product of what’s technologically possible. But what’s technologically useful. It’s not just what’s next. But what should be next.

iPhone 5S Picture Image
iPhone 5 set a precedent. Apple engineers and designers managed to compress first-of-their-kind technologies inside a space that’s a mere 7.6 millimeters thin and 112 grams light. A feat like that required designing or redesigning multiple components. And it resulted in an incredibly thin, impressively light, extraordinarily powerful smartphone. After coming so far with iPhone 5, it was a perfect place to start with iPhone 5s. And while the engineering challenge was significant, we succeeded in adding more to it without making iPhone 5s bigger or heavier.

Features

iPhone 5 set a precedent, with an amazing amount of technology in a remarkably thin, light design. iPhone 5s builds on that achievement with Touch ID - a fingerprint identity sensor. An A7 chip with 64-bit architecture. An even more impressive iSight camera. And ultra fast LTE wireless.

iOS 7

iPhone 5s is the first 64-bit smartphone in the world. And iOS 7 was designed with that in mind, built specifically for 64-bit architecture. Which makes iOS 7 just as advanced as the iPhone it’s on.

iPhone 5S iOS7 Features

Case

The iPhone 5s Case is precisely designed to fit iPhone perfectly. Made from premium leather, it looks elegant and feels luxurious. And inside, a soft, color-matched microfiber lining helps protect your iPhone 5s.

Fingerprint

The very first iPhone introduced the world to the idea of touch as the most natural way to interact with a smartphone. Touch to hear a song. Touch to browse the web. Touch to take a picture. All of it began with something perfectly simple: your finger. And now we’ve taken touch to the next logical place with Touch ID, the fingerprint identity sensor. Your fingerprint is the perfect password. You always have it with you. And no one can ever guess what it is. But beyond that, it just made sense to us that your phone should recognize you. It should learn you. Not require you to memorize and enter passwords in order to use it. We also knew the right place to locate the sensor was where you naturally touch your iPhone — on the Home button. But how could we fit all the technology that sensors require in such a small space.

That required a team of biometric experts and hardware engineers to rethink how sensor technology works and redesign the iconic Home button. Made from laser-cut sapphire crystal, the surface of the button directs the image of your finger to a capacitive touch sensor, which reads beneath the outer layers of your skin to get a detailed print. Surrounding the button is a stainless steel ring that detects your finger, wakes the sensor, and improves the signal-to-noise ratio. Software then reads the ridges of your print and finds the match to unlock your phone. It’s all highly advanced technology that simply disappears as you use it. So you don’t notice anything. Except how unlocking your iPhone is suddenly so effortless.

Fingerprint Features

  1. Touch ID Capacitive Sensor
  2. 170 microns thin
  3. 500 ppi resolution
  4. Scans sub-epidermal skin layers
  5. 360° readability

Processor Performance

Noticeably faster performance and graphics that feel more true to life. That’s the perennial goal when creating a new mobile chip. But performance shouldn’t come at the expense of efficiency. Poor battery life for the sake of speed is never an option with iPhone. Which is why we engineered an all-new chip and an all-new coprocessor for iPhone 5s: A7 and M7.

The A7 chip is designed around 64-bit architecture — a first for any smartphone. The move to 64-bit has been years in the making. But we did it because we wanted to put desktop-class processing power in the palm of people’s hands. Just imagining what people will do with that made the decision to invest in it an easy one. The A7 chip gives iPhone 5s the power it needs for all the capabilities it now possesses. It’s up to 2x faster than the previous generation in both CPU and graphics performance. It has an all-new image signal processor. And it supports OpenGL ES 3.0, enabling visual effects previously possible only on computers and gaming consoles. Yet with all these performance enhancements, A7 is still energy efficient.

The new M7 coprocessor is designed to make iPhone 5s even more efficient. It offloads work from the A7 chip by collecting motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass continuously. Apps can then use this data without constantly engaging the A7 chip. Because M7 is engineered for this specific task, it uses significantly less power than A7 would require. So again, battery life is spared.

Camera

You recognize just how indispensable a smartphone camera is when it achieves certain things. It shoots consistently great photos all the time, anytime. It’s full featured without being complicated. And it’s packaged in a device that’s slim and light enough to always be with you. The iSight camera does all those things remarkably well. So well, in fact, it’s become the world’s most popular camera. But while people love using it, we weren’t satisfied. And as we considered enhancing it, we knew we could go one of two ways: Simply add more megapixels for the sake of marketing a bigger number. Or keep the megapixel count at 8 but add a larger, state-of-the-art sensor.

Camer Results iPhone 5S

A larger sensor allows the individual pixels to get larger. And larger pixels, not more pixels, mean a better picture. So iPhone 5s has an all-new 8MP sensor. One that’s 15 percent larger than before, with pixels measuring 1.5 microns. We also increased the aperture to ƒ/2.2. All that adds up to 33 percent greater light sensitivity. That’s significant, because more light gives you better, brighter images with even more accurate colors. And the new True Tone flash intelligently figures out exactly how much light your shot needs. Why did we add all these features to an already amazing camera. Because it’s much more efficient to teach iPhone to take great photos than it is to teach millions of people to be expert photographers.

Facetime

When you can’t be there in person, you can at least be there onscreen. Share some good news with your best friend or say “good night” to a traveling loved one with a FaceTime video call. The all-new FaceTime HD camera on iPhone 5s features larger pixels and an improved backside illumination sensor, so your smile lights up the room in almost any light. And because you can make audio-only FaceTime calls in iOS 7, your tête-à-tête doesn’t have to be face-to-face.2

Ultrafast LTE Wireless

iPhone 5s has up to 13 LTE bands. That’s more than any other single model of smartphone. Which means even more iPhone users can experience fast download and upload speeds in more places around the world. Meanwhile, the number of LTE carriers supported by iPhone worldwide continues to grow. So when you’re traveling, you can take advantage of ultrafast LTE networks in more places.

iCloud

iCloud lets you access your content whether you’re using your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. And thanks to new features in iOS 7, it’s more indispensable than ever. Even if iPhone is your only Apple device, you can use iCloud Photo Sharing to send photos and videos to your friends’ iOS devices. They can comment, as well as post their own photos and videos to your shared streams. And the new Activation Lock feature of Find My iPhone makes it harder for anyone who’s not you to use or sell your device.6
