iPhone 5S Specifications/Specs and FeaturesJust as expected, the iPhone 5S looks the same on the outside, has a number of changes on the inside where pretty much all the work has gone.
iPhone 5S - The A7 chipsetThe iPhone 5S makes use of a radically re-engineered new chip set, called A7.
Based on 64-bit architecture for the first time, the new iPhone 5S is said to be up to 56 times faster than the original iPhone. iOS 7 is now a 64-bit OS, but it's backward compatible with all the currently available 32-bit apps.
The A7 also supports OpenGL ES 3.0, which opens the door to even higher-quality graphics, allowing for real-time computation of effects such as depth of field, blur, full screen vignettes and lens flares.
The processor is accompanied by the M7, a motion co-processor, which measures motion data continuously from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass, enabling a new generation of sports apps.

iPhone 5S 8MP cameraThe new camera has a wider f/2.2 aperture (as opposed to f/2.4) and a larger image sensor. There is also a new double LED flash on the iPhone 5S, which Apple has dubbed True Tone, called this way because it allows to achieve more accurate colors tone.
The camera also comes with new image stabilization, albeit digital one.
The camera will also captures 720p videos at 120fps, allowing it to create slow-mo videos.

iPhone 5S Touch IDAs rumors suggested, the new iPhone 5S will indeed sport a touch sensor embedded into the Home button. It's a security feature and it's called Touch ID.
A metallic ring around the sensor detects a present of a finger even without pressing anything.
