Some rumors we could see the guess already, that Apple will introduce a plastic iPhone. This can be viewed as a cheap beginner model. Today it was presented actually iPhone 5 C, which in the United States with a 2 year contract already for only $99 is available.
The “C” in the name of the new iPhone stands for “color”, because the device is available in 5 different colors: green, white, blue, red and yellow. Jony Ive von Apple defends Apple’s selection of material (polycarbonate) during the keynote: “This is a beautiful plastic, for which one must apologize not iPhone 5 C.”.
A 4 inch retina screen and an 8 MegaPixel camera make the device a significant entry-level model for all, which would afford no iPhone 5 S.
The iPhone 5 becomes the new top model of the Apple Smartphone series and at the same time also completely supersedes the iPhone 5 out of the market. This will no longer be available in stores now. A 64 bit processor has been installed to date still in any Smartphone – Apple goes this first step and confirmed: the new A7 much faster loading times also for complex applications processor are possible. The CPU should be 5 more than twice as fast as compared to the iPhone.
Due to the fast speed, it should be easy to realize in the future to edit HD videos with iMovie or to work on complex spreadsheets and presentations in iWork. The battery should not suffer – Apple promises even longer battery life to previous models.
The iPhone 5 s Apple relies completely on the photo – and video feature: with a slow motion function it will in future be possible to shoot up to 120 images within a second. Also the front camera has been adjusted so that in the future quality and ausgeleuchtetere videos for FaceTime can be rotated.
With the function touch ID a fingerprint can be checked at the iPhone 5 S by the home button – this should make unnecessary to enter of a security code. Simply tap the home button hold and is already unlocked the iPhone.
The iPhone 5S will soon be black, available Silver and gold (!) in the colors.
