Why the gold iPhone 5s is a hit

Why the gold iPhone 5s is a hit

Apple’s decision to build a gold-colored iPhone 5s is about more than just offering another color to consumers. For one thing, the margins are quite high on the device, and the more colors it offers, the more money it can make.

As history has proven, Apple’s customers really, really like when the company delivers new colors to its handsets. When Apple started selling the white iPhone, for example, it became an immediate hit.

iPhone 5s Touch ID prompts US Senator security concerns

iPhone 5s Touch ID prompts US Senator security concerns

US Senator Al Franken has waded into controversy over Apple's Touch ID biometric system on the iPhone 5s, challenging the Cupertino firm to address his security concerns about stolen fingerprints and data privacy. In an open letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook - in which he's quick to point out that he himself uses an iPhone - Senator Franken highlights the fact that fingerprints, unlike a password, cannot be changed by the individual.

However, while the letter makes some reference to Apple's already public security measures, it also seems to confuse exactly which part of the finger Touch ID is assessing.

iOS 7 downgrades remain available as iOS 6 is ushered out [UPDATE]

As with all upgrades to a new operating system on the device you use most during the day, with iOS 7 there's a set of features not all iPhone users are going to like. Lucky you, there's a way to switch quite a few (if not nearly all) of the odds and ends back off, as it were, back to the way they were in iOS 6 before iOS 7 turned the iPhone on its head - see our iOS 7 review if you've not already. While users can still (for now) go through the steps to actually resetting their smartphone back to factory settings to get iOS 6, they'll still eventually (probably) be coerced into moving to iOS 7 anyway - for them, toggles are in place.
