Recently, Apple has retired two of its trusted models, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. And while two phones were removed from the list, two new iPhones were put in to replace the oldies – iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, and they retained the iPhone 4S. Let’s take a closer look on these new set of great offers from Apple.
The iPhone 5S is considered a landmark in terms of new technologies on devices. It is the new face of Apple. Consumers now have three different colors to choose from: silver, space gray and champagne gold. With iPhone 5S, new heights of technologies were integrated like the Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor which was built into the Home button to easily unlock the phone. Rumors generating within Apple’s walls is that they are starting to develop newer functions designed for the said additional hardware.
Another new hardware feature is the 64-bit mobile architecture chipset which is now composed of the main processor A7 that is twice as fast as its predecessor with an image signal processor that supports OpenGL ES 3.0.
This is normally used in computers and gaming console. A co-processor called M7 gets some work off from the main chipset thereby significantly reducing the power that it previously required to operate, making the battery life more efficient. The iPhone 5S is available on contract for a minimum price of $199 for the 16GB and an increment of $100 with 32GB and 64GB respectively.
The iPhone 5C, as what Apple reviewers claim is the cheaper version of iPhone 5. It is offered in five vibrant colors, and some are thinking that it might be to cover previous mistakes made on the older iPhone 5. To which it might also be the main reason it was removed from the market the same day iPhone 5C was launched. So those are the major feature differences between the two phones except for bigger display and LTE support.
This phone’s 16GB storage capacity is available on contract with AT&T, Sprint and Verizon for only $99; $199 for the 32GB. The unlocked version is also available at $549 and $649 for the 16GB and 32GB respectively. This unlocked version may also come with a pre-installed T-Mobile SIM or totally SIM free.
And speaking of iPhone 4S, this last deal may be considered the best offer by far to this date. The iPhone 4S, the first phone integrated with Siri is now offered for free on contract by the big three service providers, taking the place of the retired iPhone 4. Considered as the most consistent and stable iPhone, consumers who would like to experience first-hard what this iPhone brings will be treated to a world like no other smartphone can give.
With the latest iOS 7 made available for operating system update for this phone, this will bring a new life and look for old but reliable features. Current reviews show the stability of iPhone 4S running iOS 7 continues to be a factor that every owner love. And since Apple just released a new set of iPhones, the older iPhone 4S will still have more years to go.
