iPhone 5s Review

iPhone 5s Review

We've come to expect evolution not revolution from the "S" update to Apple's iPhone range, but the iPhone 5s could be enough to buck that trend. Inside the familiar metal casing beats a new processor, the Apple A7, making the iPhone 5s the first smartphone - and iOS 7 the first smartphone platform - to transition to 64-bit; the home button has lost its square sigil but gained a biometric sensor that might be the first to actually convince owners to use it; and the camera may still be 8-megapixels in resolution on paper, but those pixels - and the way Apple uses them - are quantifiably better than before. Does that make the iPhone 5s the automatic choice in smartphones? Read on for our full review.

Android 64-bit support already baked in: just add hardware

Android 64-bit support already baked in: just add hardware

Supposing you were more than excited about the announcement by Apple this past week that their next-generation Apple A7 chip and iOS 7 brought on 64-bit support for processing, it may come as a shock that Android already has such capabilities. In fact, because Android is based on Linux, it's had the ability to work with 64-bit processing for a long, long time. Word straight Linux Foundation Executive Director Jim Zemlin suggests that there isn't even any "special development process" that has to be done for Android to handle 64-bit processing power - it just works.

iPad 5 in Gold: three color SIM trays appear in repair shops

iPad 5 in Gold: three color SIM trays appear in repair shops

Now that the iPhone 5s has been unveiled, the 5th generation iPad is up for the big leaks show, appearing this week with three different color SIM card trays. These parts appear to be popping up in a manner not unlike the parts we saw earlier this year that indicated the Gold iPhone 5s as well as what we'd assumed was Gunmetal - that turned out to be called Space Gray. Now the iPad 5's SIM trays are showing up in the same three tones: Gold, Space Gray, and White (silver for white, that is).

iPhone 5s and 5c arrive Friday: sold out in China, lines in USA and Japan

iPhone 5s and 5c arrive Friday: sold out in China, lines in USA and Japan

You might not know it, but the iPhone 5s has already gone on sale in China and subsequently sold out - every single size and color. This doesn't mean that places like Japan or the United States should worry, as there is separate stock for each different region, but it just goes to show: the lines at 5th Avenue in NYC and in the Ginza district in Japan may not be there without purpose. It's quite possible Apple will sell out of iPhones this time around.

iPhone 5s 64-Bit app submissions opened by Apple

iPhone 5s 64-Bit app submissions opened by Apple

This week those responsible for holding the keys to the gates of Apple's mobile app store have taken the lock off of submissions for 64-bit apps. Developers will be able to create and submit 64-bit apps for iOS 7 only for the time being. In the near future, Apple will be sending out availability for both 32-bit and 64-bit development for both iOS 7 and iOS 6 in a single app binary.

iOS 7 Siri gets serious: out of Beta at last

iOS 7 Siri gets serious: out of Beta at last

As of the 18th of September, iOS 7 will be out in the wild, and with it the final (or first, however you like to see it) full version of Siri. Up until now Siri has been labeled with a "Beta" tag by Apple for all of the devices that've used it - iPhone 4S, iPad 3rd and 4th generations, iPhone 5 and all. Now with the launch of iOS 7, this "supercharged" version of Apple's virtual assistant Siri will be sent out to the masses.

iPhone 5c begins to sell out, 5s online orders announced

iPhone 5c begins to sell out, 5s online orders announced

Today pre-orders began for Apple's iPhone 5c, the phone that's set to replace the iPhone 5 in the company's stock while the iPhone 5s takes the hero spot, and they've already begun to sell out pre-orders. Though it is only one model and one color for now, it would appear that this smartphone is set to be a winner despite controversy over its specifications being so similar to last year's model. Meanwhile the iPhone 5s has been announced to be hitting the Apple store online at midnight, starting the 20th of September off right with a launch at 12:01 AM PST.

Apple event video released: relive iPhone 5S, 5C, and iOS 7

Apple event video released: relive iPhone 5S, 5C, and iOS 7

While the team at Apple revealed the likes of iOS 7 for the first time earlier this year at their developer conference WWDC 2013, we saw this mobile operating system as well as the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C ready for release today. Apple has posted a full event video for the keynote this afternoon, allowing users who weren't able to attend the keynote the ability to watch it for themselves for the first time. This event, unlike some events in the past, was not livecast via Apple.

iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

iPhone 5S vs 5C vs 4S: battle for iOS 7 supremacy

As of this week, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 5 entirely, focusing instead on the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C, and the iPhone 4S. While it was widely expected that Apple would take the smaller display of the iPhone 4S out of the equation entirely, it would seem instead that the company opted for ease in differentiation between models. It's a whole heck of a lot more difficult to sell an iPhone 5S when you've got a nearly identical-looking iPhone 5 sitting on the shelf for a lower price, after all.
