After numerous leaks, Apple has finally unveiled two of its latest iPhones, the iPhone 5C and 5S, on Tuesday.
Available in gold, silver and space grey, the iPhone 5S features a new A7 processor that has been re-engineered for 64-bit architecture, making it faster and capable of running complex software.
The phone also boasts a camera with a f/2.2 aperture to allow users to take better pictures despite low light and a dual-LED flash to create shots with perfect natural colour balance. Aside from its panorama mode taking a 28-megapixel shot, the phone’s burst mode can also take ten still images in just a matter of one second.
Instead of a traditional passcode, the phone comes with a fingerprint scanner, which can also be used when signing in to iTunes to buy media and apps.
The iPhone 5S is priced at US$199 for its 16GB model and US$299 for its 32GB unit, while its 64GB version will set you back US$399.
Meanwhile, most of the capabilities of the new iPhone 5C are similar to those found in the iPhone 5, but the new phone features a back covered in coloured polycarbonate. The iPhone 5C comes in vibrant blue, green, yellow, white and pink.
Prices will be US$100 less than the iPhone 5, with the 16GB unit priced at US$99.
Both phones will be offered in stores on 20 September, with the 5C open for pre-order starting 13 September.
Apple also announced that it will discontinue the iPhone 5 while the iPhone 4S will be offered for free with a two-year contract.
