iPhone 5S official: first smartphone on market with 64-bit SoC

After much anticipation for the device that'll one-up the iPhone 5, Apple has revealed the iPhone 5S in full. This device takes on a shape that's rather similar to the previous iPhone, appearing here as an incremental update to the smartphone line rather than a full reboot. This device works with a 4-inch touchscreen display with 1136 x 640 pixel resolution - that's 326 PPI, with an aluminum casing around the sides and the back.

iPhone 5S benchmarks imminent as 3DMark arrives on iOS

There's little doubt that Futuremark - folks responsible for creating the benchmarking app 3DMark - decided on syncing up the release of their gamer-aimed test with the release of Apple's new iPhone (or iPhones). What you've got here is a set of two tests with lots and lots of variables, all of it already released for Android some months ago. As you'll see in our review of the NVIDIA SHIELD gaming handheld, the charts are currently dominated by processor architecture made by NVIDIA and Qualcomm. Now it's Apple's turn.

iPhone 5S and 5C rumor round-up

Tomorrow an Apple event will play host to the launch of what's expected to be more than one new iPhone device as well as the formal public release of iOS 7. This mobile operating system update to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch device family was introduced earlier this year at Apple's yearly developers conference WWDC. The devices Apple is expected to unveil are both the iPhone 5S - an incremental update to the iPhone 5, and the iPhone 5C - the plastic-backed so-called "budget" device rumored for many moons, with bright colors all around.

iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner legit says former biometrics tech team exec

Talk of new fingerprint scanning technology in the iPhone 5S may not be that far off the mark, with a new set of photos and some background from a biometric security expert lending weight to the chatter. The part photos were shared by Sonny Dickson, notorious for getting his hands on upstream Apple hardware and digging deep inside beta software code for early reveals - now he's got what seems to be a new home button for the iPhone 5S. This device appears by all means to be a legitimate piece of equipment that could be used by the next-generation hardware - and we've heard this story before.

Apple iPhone September 10th event confirmed as invites land

Apple has confirmed it will hold an event on September 10th, sending out invites to press, with the iPhone 5S expected to take center stage alongside a cheaper iPhone and iOS 7.

Visualizing the iPhone Color

Though when this article is being written and published, we're not certain of what the next iPhone will be called, it does seem quite likely that there'll be a version with a plastic back cover in a variety of colors. This device has been code-named iPhone 5C in the tech news circuit, and may very well be called the iPhone Color when revealed at an event tentatively scheduled (not Apple official quite yet) for the 10th of September. So what's this plastic iPhone all about?

Apple support vacation blackout dates suggest September iPhone launch

Apple support vacation blackout dates suggest September iPhone launch

A document has surfaced today from the inner realm of Apple product support that suggests the dates between and including September 15th through the 29th will not be available for employee vacation. This range of dates for a blackout provided by AppleInsider suggest something very similar to what we saw earlier this week from T-Mobile USA, they having a black-out range starting on the 20th of September and running through a 3-day range (through the weekend, that is). Such dates suggest not only an iPhone launch, but the release of iOS 7 as well.

iOS 7 AppleCare employee training schedule further supports a September 10 event

AppleCare employees are said to have begun iOS 7 training. The details suggest the training process began today, but perhaps a bit more important is when they are expected to have everything completed. Details coming from 9to5Mac mention how those employees should have everything finished by the second week of September. In other words, this is another piece of evidence pointing towards a September 10 release.

Gold iPhone 5S looks a September 10 lock-in

Gold iPhone 5S looks a September 10 lock-in

Apple's iPhone 5S will almost certainly come in a gold or champagne finish, multiple sources have confirmed with insiders familiar with the next-gen iOS 7 flagship smartphone, describing the finish as "elegant" rather than gaudy. After reports over the weekend of a new color option for the iPhone 5S alongside the existing black and silver, and chatter of leaked parts earlier this month, now AllThingsD claims its moles have told it to "think champagne, not ingot" about the third hue, which will be paired with a white fascia. However, the gold iPhone 5S isn't solely about a new color, with long-standing talk of fingerprint biometrics expected to culminate in a new push for smartphone security in iOS 7 and beyond.
