    • iWork, iPhoto, iMovie now free (there goes $100 down the toilet for me) 🙁

    iPhone 5C Specs:

    Replacing the whole (lower the price of last year’s). iPhone 5 and below Gone for good. Schiller presents:

    • processor – A6

    • display

    • COLOR: 5 Colors – Plastic- green, white, blue, pink and yellow – cheapens the brand? – Unibody design -entire back – at least the screen is glass

    • Steel-reinforced

    • 4 inch Retina Display

    • Special cases so color shines through

    • camera – Facetime HD Front – 3x Zoom Back with increased lowlight performance – 8 MP

    • design

    • Battery Life: Higher Capacity Battery

    • 100 MBpS dual band Wifi – finally

    • ONLY $99 – a great value  (16GB). 32 GB 5C is $199

    special features:

    iPhone 5S Specs:

    • Black, Gold and Silver

    • Aluminium

    • M7 – new chip/part – “motion co-processor” – deals with compass, accelerometer, gyroscope to read data while processor works on other things – keeps track of activities, like Jawbone UP (my review)

    • processor SOC A7 is 64 bit – twice as fast on tasks and graphics

    • Fast like LIGHTNING

    • 40X faster than first iPhone

    • A billion transistors

    • “Console level graphics”

    • FAST

    • display

    • Camera: F2.2 aperture camera – that means insane Depth of field and low light performance – Bigger pixels – makes it more of a camera, less “caamera phone”

      • Still 8 MP – respectable

      • Auto white balance – key

      • 2 LEDs for better flash performance

      • Auto Stableization – also key – maybe I would have been able to get a clean photo of air force one while my wrists were shaking, with this

      • 10 pics per second burst mode! Better than DSLR cameras

      • Slow Motion Video Camera – sick awesome – 120 fps HD (slowed 400%)

      • 28 MP adjustable Panorama

      • TouchID – for those who hate passcodes – Fingerprint scanner under home button – 70 microns thin, 500 pixels per inch – insanely great – first time I’ve been able to use that phrase in years

      • What if you break your home button?

      • Also replaces iTunes password!

      • 50% of people don’t lock their phone

      • What if a friend needs to access it? Option of passcode?

      • Saphire button, so it won’t break

      • encrypted

      • 16 GB $199, 32 GB $299

      • Dyed leather case = $39

      • 4S 8GB still around

      • 5S and 5C due to arrive September 20th in 100 countries

      • Still looks like an iPhone 5 – just like 4S and 4

    • design

    • battery: 10 hours of talk time, 250 standby, 10 browsing – excellent
