Fifty cents more in sensors could’ve made the iPhone 5s an empath

An extra fifty cents worth of sensors and your iPhone 5s could have read your emotions rather than just track exercise and fitness, chip manufacturer Freescale says, predicting a time soon when smartphones will know more about our moods than our friends and families do. The iPhone 5s' M7 co-processor, added by Apple in its latest smartphone iteration, is just a few senses away from a whole new level of understanding about its owner, Kaivan Karimi, executive director of global strategy and business development at Freescale Semiconductor, suggested today.

iPhone 5s outselling 5c 2-to-1 tip analysts as orders slashed

iPhone 5s outselling 5c 2-to-1 tip analysts as orders slashed

Apple's iPhone 5s is outselling the cheaper iPhone 5c by more than two to one, market watchers estimate, amid reports that the Cupertino firm has slashed production of the plastic-bodied model. Demand for the iPhone 5c, which replaced the iPhone 4S at the $99-on-contract price point, has fallen significantly short of Apple's expectations, it's claimed, and while the two new handsets set sales records in the opening weekend of availability, the bulk of that interest is believed to be around the iPhone 5s.

iPhone 5s shipping cut to 2-3 weeks, Gold to November

Gold iPhone 5s demand becomes reasonable while supply stays mysterious

While demand for the gold-colored iPhone 5s seems to have been high the world over, the oddest cultural response continues to be in China, where the device is given the nickname "Tyrant King." It's there also that some of the highest prices have been demanded, with some 3rd party sellers taking the opportunity to follow the supply trends to maximize profit. This week, however, sources speaking with MyDrivers in China have reported the lowering of prices on this 3rd party merchant market for the gold iPhone 5s due not only to the idea that this model would be appearing in greater supply soon, but because "only wealthy people would buy this phone."
