The characteristics of the iPhone 5s
The iPhone 5s screen is 4 inches in size and has a resolution of 1136 × 640 pixels. 16 million colors can be displayed on its screen.
Equipped with a camera of 8 Megapixels like its predecessor, the iPhone 5s however has a more developed camera. Indeed, its camera has a larger aperture of about 15%, which makes it possible to have pixels of larger dimension, and the sensitivity to light has been increased to 33%.

Burst and slow motion mode have been added, making it possible to take many shots in seconds or to admire in detail a moment captured in slow motion.
In terms of processor, the iPhone 5s is equipped with a A7 microprocessor, which replaces the old A6 chip, and also a M7 motion coprocessor.
The A7 chip is the very first 64-bit capacity processor fitted to a cell phone. This chip notably improves the performance of the model it equips, thus making the iPhone 5s more powerful than the old models. In addition, his M7 coprocessor improves the general energy efficiency of the appliance. Indeed, it allows the collection of data from its various motion sensors to then unload the processor.
The iPhone 5s is the first Apple phone to gain access to the network 4G which allows a faster data transfer (up to 100 Mbit / s) compared to the transfer capacities of the 3G + network.
In addition to the sensors already present on the old models such as the gyroscope, the compass, and the accelerometer, the iPhone 5s has a new sensor named Touch ID which allows to register and recognize a fingerprint. Touch ID is used in particular to unlock the mobile phone or to have access to certain parameters which require authentication.
