iPhone 5c

  • 5 different colors: gray, red, yellow, green and blue.
  • A6 chip.
  • 8MP iSight camera. 4-inch Retina display.
  • iOS 7.
  • 16 GB or 32 GB options.

There will also be Apple iPhone 5c cases available for an additional charge. They will allow people to customize the color scheme of their phone.


The 5c will start at $99 and will be available for pre-order on September 13.

iPhone 5s

  • 3 different color options: black, gold and “space gray”
  • Touch ID. A new fingerprint identity sensor.
  • A 15 percent larger sensor. Wider ƒ/2.2 aperture.3 True Tone flash. Burst mode and slo-mo video. 8-megapixel iSight camera.
  • 64-bit A7 chip.
  • 16 GB, 32 GB or 64GB options.
  • Leather cases in various colors for $39.

It is not yet confirmed whether or not Touch ID (fingerprint scanner) will support multiple fingerprints or only the primary owner of the phone.

The “big” feature of the 5s is the Touch ID along with iOS 7 (which will be available on other iPhones, too). Just like with every other iPhone release, it will be a faster phone, better performance and improved graphics. It’s the exact same screen size with an improved camera and same battery life.

The 5s will start at $199 and no pre-order date was announced during the keynote, meaning you’ll have to go to an Apple store to buy your phone.
