The Apple Sept. 10th event has announced a lot of new exciting updates.
iOS 7 will be available, for free, starting on September 18th. This will be for the iPhone4 and up, and also iPad2 and up. If you’d like a quick run-down on some of the features head here.
Onto the iPhone5C and iPhone5S. Apple has stated that once they release the 2 new phones, the iPhone5 will no longer be sold.
“The iPhone 5C is made with all the incredible technology that customers have loved with the iPhone 5, but there’s more, too. It has an incredible new design. One that’s more fun, and more colorful than anything we’ve made before.”
Colors will be what we expected, green, grey, light blue, peach, and yellow.
Steel Enforced with a multi band antenna.
Hard coated polycarbonate back, with a glass front.
4 inch Retina display
Full sRGB Standard
New FaceTime HD camera
Console level graphics
New camera app with live photo filters. 3x video zoom.
16GB priced at $99, 32GB for $199 with a 2-year contract.
Yes Apple is sticking with the half upgrades as they announced the iPhone5S as we all expected.
Available colors will be Silver, gold, and “a new space gray.”
A7 chip, 64 bit. The world’s first 64 bit mobile phone
It’s made of a high-grade aluminum, with diamond-cut, chamfered edges. (Same as iPhone5)
It runs OpenGP ES 3.0. “This means that graphics-intense applications can bring their console- and desktop-level performance to the iPhone 5S.”
They announced a whole new chip, the M7 which will continuously measure motion data, accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass. This chip enables a new generation of health and fitness apps.
There’s a new, 5-element, Apple-designed lens with f/2.2 aperture. A 15 percent larger sensor.
“When you do take a picture, unbeknownst to you it actually takes multiple pictures.” This phone will automatically choose the best one for you.
All new TrueTone flash. “Whatever color your flash is it’s going to clash with the color of the room and give you a color that doesn’t look right. The flash is a dual-element, cool and amber. It offers 1,000 possible color temperatures!”
120fps slow-motion camera
Touch ID, fingerprint. built right into the home button. It’s still a physical button, that you need to push down, but there’s a metal ring that senses your finger.
How it works:
Touch ID capable sensor
170 microns thin
500 ppi resolution
Scans sub-epidermal skin layer
360 degree readability
They go on to say its a “very high level of security.There’s a secure area as portion of the A7 accessible only by the Touch ID, it’s never stored online or backed up to the iCloud.”
This feature can also be used for iTunes purchases.
You can pre-order the 5C on September 13th and purchase the 5C and 5S on the 20th.
