Tuesday Apple launched iOS 7, iPhone 5S and 5C as expected. What are the highlights for these new things? Let’s take a look.
The official version of iOS 7 will be publicly upgraded on 18th September. The iOS 7 offers new design with app icon, notice center, control center and app shortcut. And other more little changes are provided including English version Siri with male voice and new recorded ringtone.
“The business has become so large that this year we are going to replace the iPhone 5 and we are going to replace it with two new designs,” Apple chief Tim Cook announced at the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters.
iPhone 5C is the same as the exposure before. It has five colors including green, white, blue, pink and yellow. The sheathing material is just in a plastic case instead of a metal case. And the back case is integrated into a completed part with two sides.
In hardware aspect, iPhone 5C seems to look like iPhone 5. iPhone 5C is better than iPhone 5 in battery. But they have the same 800 pixel insight camera. iPhone 5C is provided with new HD front camera and higher pixel and BSI. Apart from above, iPhone 5C supports LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The iPhone 5C with 16 gigabytes of memory will sell for as low as US$99 with a US carrier contract — half the cost of earlier iPhone base models.
And then it’s iPhone 5S with the color in grey, gold and silver. iPhone 5S adopts bran-new A7 chip. It’s the first 64-bit chip, much faster compared with A6. The ability of processing image is improved greatly. It runs OpenGL ES 3.0 that will bring new breakthrough to the games with higher requirements to image. iPhone 5S model includes a speedier chip which brings up the computing power from 32 to 64 bits.
