Every year around the September period, there is always some buzz in the air as Apple usually launches a new phone. This time round they release 2 new phones, Iphone 5C (color) and Iphone 5S (it used to stand for Speed when the first ‘S’ appeared on the 3GS). Anyhow, what can you expect from these 2 new phones? Let me break it down in a few words:
Iphone 5C – Same as the iphone 5 (2012) but now comes in colors (5 to be exact), only thing new inside is that it now supports more LTE Bands.
Iphone 5S – Looks exactly the same as the iphone 5 but now with a faster processor (A7), new camera/flash, fingerprint reader, 64-bit processing and another new chip M7. Oh, it also now comes in Gold (bling bling!!).
Apart from the new phones, the OS also saw a major upgrade to IOS7 which is a complete re-haul of the whole operating system. I did manage to installed in on my iphone 4S just to see what the fuss is about. Well, first impression is that it is very different visually. It feels like a complete do-over, some good some bad. If you are interested in the details there are many review out there to read about it, I can’t be bothered really.
Anyway, my initial impressions are positive, the new control center and notification is a good welcome, the color scheme, not so much. Well, I’ve only got it for 2 days so still learning more about it. Any do check it out here if you own a iphone 4 and above.
