iPhone 5S camera: 2.2 aperture, 1.5 micro pixels on camera. “Bigger pixels let in more light,” better pictures.
The iPhone 5C is the first of its kind, coming a variety of bright colors rather than just white and black. It’s casing is made of plastic, rather than the high-strength metal that protects its more expensive cousin, the iPhone 5S, which was also shown to the public in Cupertino. The 5C will be available in white, blue, green, rose and yellow.
“The entire back and sides are made from a single part,” Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said at Tuesday’s event. There are no seams, and the casing is made of polycarbonate reinforced with steel, and is described as “solid” and “dense” feeling.
iPhone 5C prices: 16 GB $99 w/ contract, 32 GB $199 w/ contract. Six color cases $29 each.
Color makes a statement and reveals your personality. And iPhone 5c comes in five unlike-anything-else colors. Add one of the six Apple-designed cases (sold separately), and it quickly goes from colorfully cool to impossible to ignore.

The iPhone 5S will be the same size as its predecessor, the iPhone 5, with a 4-inch screen. Big screens are all the rage these days, and Apple is rumored to be working on phones with larger screens, but physically, the iPhone 5S looks very similar to last year’s model.
The phone includes Apple’s new A7 64-bit chip, and Apple describes the 5S as the “world’s first and only smartphone” with a 64-bit chip. Phil Schiller, announcing the new phone, described the device’s CPU and graphics as twice as fast in speed as the iPhone 5. The chip also packs a series of other performance and graphics enhancements. In addition to the A7, the phone includes the M7 motion coprocessor. The M7 “continuously measures motion data,” and includes the phone’s accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.
