When the news broke earlier this week that we could start ordering the iPhone 5c online as of 12:01 a.m. PST this morning, it seemed only natural to assume that'd we'd be able to do the same for the iPhone 5s next Friday. Today in a mass e-mail, Apple confirmed that those suspicions were correct. The big difference, of course, is that you might as well just trying walking into the Apple Store if you want one on September 20.
The iPhone 5s might look a whole lot like the iPhone 5 it replaced, but under the hood it's a whole new animal. Speed and security is the name of the game, but there are plenty of little improvements to keep it ahead of its competitors. And if you still want your friends to know you're rocking the newest model, there are enough external changes to set it apart from last year's handset. Here's a look at the most exciting upgrades and enhancements coming with the iPhone 5s.
It may be an unlucky day according to the calendar, but those waiting anxiously to get their hands on one of the new iPhone 5c smartphones can now at least virtually slap down their credit card and preorder one now.
In a move that should surprise no one, Samsung announced today in an interview with the Korea Times that its next Galaxy smartphones would also feature 64-bit chips. The news comes on the heels of Apple's announcement on Tuesday that the iPhone 5S would have an A7 chip, and that it would be the first 64-bit smartphone processor on the market.
After the announcement of the iPhone 5s' fingerprint detector, jokes abounded on Twitter and throughout much of the rest of the Internet about how the NSA was going to document everyone's fingerprints with the device. According to the Wall Street Journal, at least, it may not come to that. According to an unnamed spokesman at Apple, the fingerprint detector won't actually record images of your fingerprints.
T-Mobile's apparently taking its new relationship with Apple quite seriously, as reported by MacRumors. Today the wireless carrier announced its plans for the upcoming iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s, with the former available for no down payment and the latter available with a down payment of $99.
With the unveiling of the iPhone 5s and 5c, our real deals today are focused on cases that will work with the flagship product that Cupertino loves so much. Some of these are for your 5s (get a new phone, get a new case is our motto) while there are actually some 5c cases already ready on the market. So have these babies at the ready when your new handset gets to your hot little hands. And finally get yourself some orange for your iPhone 5c. It's the missing color!
Anyone who's ever tracked an online iPhone order has probably seen their device ship from Shenzhen, China and make its way around the globe — but have you ever wondered how Apple manages millions of them at once?
Following yesterday's announcements of the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c, Apple updated its YouTube page with product videos that show the products in action for the first time. (Well, at least without the stain of rumors surrounding them.) Be sure to check them out, as they're a nice visual complement to the articles we wrote during the announcement.
