Unlock Apple’s powerful new phone with a single touch
Your finger is the key
Security is important but entering a passcode for your phone every time you pick it up can be tedious and slows you down. The new fingerprint identity sensor for iPhone 5s eliminates this problem with a single touch. You can even store multiple fingerprints to allow the people you trust access.
The new blazingly fast A7 chip gives you CPU and graphics performance up to 2x faster than the previous A6 chip. Even more impressive, A7 makes iPhone 5s the first 64-bit smartphone in the world — that’s desktop-class architecture in a super-slim phone. And because iOS 7 was built specifically for 64 bit, it’s uniquely designed to take advantage of the A7 chip.
Your processor now has a partner
The new M7 coprocessor is like a sidekick to the A7 chip. It’s designed specifically to measure motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass — a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. But M7 is much more efficient at it. Now fitness apps that track physical activity can access that data from the M7 coprocessor without constantly engaging the A7 chip. So they require less battery power.
M7 knows when you’re walking, running or even driving. For example, Maps switches from driving to walking turn-by-turn navigation if, say, you park and continue on foot. And if your phone hasn’t moved for a while, like when you’re asleep, M7 reduces network pinging to spare your battery.
A sight to behold
iPhone 5s features advanced technologies custom designed for the iSight camera’s hardware and software. So anyone anywhere can take an amazing photo at any time.
Enjoy quality time, wherever you are
When you can’t be there in person, you can at least be there onscreen. Share some good news with your best friend or discuss a project with a work colleague. The all-new FaceTime HD camera on iPhone 5s features larger pixels and an improved backside illumination sensor, so your smile lights up the room in almost any light.
iPhone 5s supports more networks than ever before. So now even more people can experience fast download and upload speeds. Meanwhile, the number of carriers supported by iPhone throughout the world continues to grow. So when you’re travelling, you can take advantage of ultra-fast networks in more places.
Feature-packed operating system
iOS 7 was designed with iPhone 5s in mind. Everything about it takes advantage of the advanced technologies built into iPhone 5s — like the 64-bit A7 chip, the Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor and the new, even more remarkable iSight camera. In addition, iOS 7 introduces great new features, such as smarter multitasking, AirDrop and Control Centre, that make the things you do every day even easier, faster and more enjoyable. No matter what you’re doing or which app you’re using, finding your way round is extremely intuitive. So from day one, you know how to use our most advanced mobile OS on our most advanced iPhone yet.
Apps for everything
iOS 7 comes with an amazing collection of apps for the things you want to do and need to do, like sending emails and texts, browsing the web, shooting and sharing great photos and videos, getting directions and more. And all the built-in apps are optimised to take advantage of the A7 chip’s high-performance 64-bit architecture.
iCloud lets you access your content whether you’re using your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac. And thanks to new features in iOS 7, it’s more indispensable than ever. Even if iPhone is your only Apple device, you can use iCloud Photo Sharing to send photos and videos to your friends’ iOS devices. They can comment as well as post their own photos and videos to your shared streams. And the new Activation Lock feature of Find My iPhone makes it harder for anyone who’s not you to use or sell your device.
