iPhone 5S

The iPhone 5S marked the beginning of 64-bit power. While the Android world was going with 4-core 32-bit processors, Apple raised the bar with its dual-core 64-bit A7, which has about twice the power of the A6.

iPhone 5SThe iPhone 5S also introduced a built-in fingerprint sensor in the iPhone’s home button known as Touch ID. It was also the first iPhone available in gold.

The 5S has an improved camera and a dual-LED flash that can adjust for different lighting situations. Automatic HDR is standard on the 5S – it had been an user option on the 4S and 5. Digital image stabilization is also new with the 5S.

Between the iPhone 5C and 5S, 9 million units were sold over the weekend of their release. Even though it didn’t ship until September 30, 2013, it was the best selling model among major U.S. carriers for the month.

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus replaced the iPhone 5S as the top-end model in September 2014, at which point the 64 GB 5S was discontinued. As of September 2015, it looks like the 16 GB and 32 GB versions will remain as the no-cost and $49 “with 2-year contract” models, rather than Apple introducing an 8 GB entry-level iPhone. We expect the iPhone 5S to be discontinued in September 2016.
