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

  • processor – A6

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
