Technology Tidbits: Apples Newest Products

Technology is changing every day. While some people like to stick to their old flip phone, many are deciding to switch to the iPhone. The iPhone has been around since 2007 and is gaining popularity everywhere. The newest generations of the iPhone are called the iPhone 5s and 5c.
The iPhone 5s is almost the exact same as the iPhone 5. However, it does have a few extra features that catch people’s attention. For example, the new phone has a fingerprint identity sensor. That means that instead of entering a pass code to unlock your phone, you just have to put your finger on the screen and it will recognize your print. The iPhone 5s also has an all new iSight camera that has 8-megapixels, which makes the pictures much clearer and nicer. You can also take pictures in slow motion. When you buy the new phone, you have a choice of silver, space gray, and gold for the color.
There’s also the iPhone 5c. The iPhone 5c allows people who cannot afford or do not wish to spend a lot of money on an iPhone, get one. The iPhone 5c costs $99 for the 16GB and $199 for the 32GB. However, unlike the iPhone 5s, the 5c does not come in 64GB. The 5c also comes in a variety of colors such as blue, pink, yellow, green, and white. The phone is also made out of plastic, so it is much more durable. However, it does weigh more than the 5s which could be a problem for some people if they do not enjoy carrying the phone in their pocket.
Along with the new set of iPhones out, there is also iOS 7. Apple released this software on September 18th and is completely different from any software that they have ever created. iOS 7 is very colorful with all new application designs and is supposed to make using the iPhone a lot easier. The only problem that people have with iOS 7 is that it looks very similar to the Galaxy and Android phones. People are also saying that if Steve Jobs were still alive, he would not have made the iOS 7 look like it does today because he was known for his originality.
Apple has recently achieved greater success. They have sold over nine million iPhones in only three days and iOS 7 is now being called “the fastest software upgrade in history.” Overall, Apple is very pleased with the results and so are customers. They have also already run out of their initial stock of the iPhone 5s and have to quickly make more. Apple also just recently replaced Coca-Cola as the most valuable brand in the world. Even though they released both iPhones along with the iOS 7 software update, people around the world are already awaiting the next product.
