Apple iPhone 5S launched with fingerprint identity sensor

Along with the Apple iPhone 5C, Apple Inc also launched the Apple iPhone 5S that comes with a unique feature – a fingerprint identity sensor. The iPhone 5S is priced at $199 for 16GB, $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB in the US with contract. Unlocked version will cost more.

The iPhone 5S is powered by A7 chipset (64 bit architecture) with M7 motion coprocessor. The A7 chipset is 2 times faster than its predecessor the A6. M7 coprocessor adds as a sidekick that not only helps reduce power consumption but also takes off some load from the A7 chip. M7 handles the accelerometer, compass and gyro part. M7 can detect when you are running, driving or walking, it also consumes minimal power when in sleep mode.

If you compare the specifications with the Apple iPhone 5 there is not much of a difference. The screen, design and the internal storage space is the same. However Processor is different plus the camera now comes with improved lens and not to forget the fingerprint scanner that doubles as the home button (as well as the scanner).

The finger sensor is no doubt an innovative feature and a better security option. Users can unlock the phone and their fingerprint can also approve purchases made from stores. It does not matter how you hold the phone (portrait / landscape) the fingerprint scanner works anyway.
