Apple Iphone 5S: 64-bit And Fingerprint Sensor

The 5s looks like its predecessor, but under the hood a lot is more on technology. An additional processor registers movements and ensuring more efficiency.

Long seethed the rumor mill, and many ultimately voted: Yes, the new Apple iPhone 5S looks like its predecessor Apple iPhone 5 from. Yes, the Smartphone is there for the first time in gold. Yes, it has the new A7 chip and a fingerprint sensor on board.

But there was a big surprise: the A7 processor of the 5s has 64-bit architecture – thus Apple in a way heralds a new era in Smartphone, because previously ran the devices with 32-bit

processors. This, it was said at the today’s keynote, makes the iPhone 5S twice as fast as the 5 series. The graphic is 5 times as fast as with its predecessor, the demo of infinity blade 3 was anyway, very impressive and game consoles-like. Elder should be with the new system but remains compatible apps.

Slow motion video camera

Also new on board: the additional processor “M7”. This registered and monitored the data from the accelerometer, the gyroscope and compass and provides better performance, since it relieves the main processor.

The 8-megapixel camera iSight is the 5 S from a new F2. 2-lens, LED flash its color temperature adjusts to the situation. The sensor has grown to 15%, which should improve the quality of the image. In addition, the auto focus has become twice as fast and the snapping can absorb now fps 720 p videos with 120, which should succeed in great slow motion shots. Camera still takes 1080 p videos with 30 fps. The 1.2 MP-FaceTime front camera is suitable for 720 p video calls.

Touch ID in the home button

The fingerprint sensor, “Touch ID”, meanwhile is housed in the home button and has a 500 ppi resolution.By means of the sensor, this can be unlock iPhone 5 S, even iTunes purchases can be confirmed via the sensor. So sometimes the partner may unlock the iPhone, you can save more fingerprints.

The new iOS 7, which at Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPad 2 runs, is adapted to the 64-bit architecture and represents a radical break in comparison to previous versions: the design was revised and is far simpler, but also functional than before.

Further no NFC

Despite the more powerful processor, the battery life has risen again, now 10 h calls in UMTS mode are in there, as well as 10h Internet-surfing in Wi-Fi – or LTE mode, in the 3 g mode it is still 8 hours. The standby time up to 250 hours.

There is no change in the retina display, the 4-inch screen resolves still 1136 x 640 pixels (326 ppi), the internal memory is also 16, 32, or 64 GB memory and while Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n (2.4 and 5 GHz), LTE, and lightning-to-USB are back on board, you must continue to forgo NFC. Also the housing will remain that same, with a depth of 7.6 mm and a total weight of 112 grams. Prices continue to iPhone typical high, so the 16 GB version with 699 beats the 32 GB version with 799, the 64 GB model with €899 (EIA) record.


So much first overview, in the next few days we will deal closer 5s with the. I think Apple has made interesting the 5S for a lot with the 64-bit processor, as suggested in the run-up to or expected. Now tests must show how much is the speed and the new iOS 7 in practice prove. For you in the meantime Schonmal a nice promo video:
