I have been anxiously waiting for the iPhone 5S after getting the iPhone 4 last year instead of being patient and waiting for the 4s. This year is a new year! The iPhone 5S is rumored to be released at a special Apple event on September 10th and said to launch not one but two new, the iPhone 5C and 5S per Cult of Mac (note: name still not announced) plus an addition color besides just black and white…GOLD!
So what are we to expect in the iPhone 5S version?
Almost a year ago Apple quietly bought AuthenTec, a company that does makes finger tip sensor technology, and on July 18, 2013, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple. Patently Apple also relayed that the patent application discloses the technology behind their new fingerprint sensor which is rumored it will be used in a future fingerprint scanner for the iPhone 5S. It is also said that the fingerprint scanner may be combined with face or Retina recognition to improve consumers security needs. As confidential as apple is known to be the puzzle pieces all seems to be coming together, phones with fingerprint sensors and facial recognition maybe coming fast then you know it.
As usual the new iPhone 5S is expected to have several enhanced upgrades from the iPhone 5 however the phone should remain the same size but will be running the iOS 7 platform at point of purchase. I have also read several articles that seem to confirm there will be a new home button will be covered in scratch resistant sapphire glass.
As we all know everything looks cooler in slow motion and per a post from iPhone In Canada the iPhone 5S is said to have a 12 megapixel camera with a slow motion feature and improved night shooting. Imagine all the hilarious videos you can make in slow motion and be able to instantly to your social media in minutes, gnarly dude!
Though cutegeek can’t confirm all the media rumors and speculations for the new iPhone 5S I will personally be at the apple store the day of launch (if I can get off of work) to finally get my hands on this to do a full review for you all (and put the rumors to rest).
