Apple has revealed its latest evolution of the popular iPhone at a flash media briefing overnight in the USA, announcing two new models, the flagship iPhone 5S, and the mid-range targeted iPhone 5C.
The big features of note this time around, are a 64bit processor, a fingerprint sensor built around the home button, improvements in the camera and flash, and a co-processor for the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.
The default colour is now a champagne gold hue, with silver and grey options also available.
Phone 5s comes in gold, silver or space gray, and will be available in Australia for a recommended retail price of RRP $869 inc GST for the 16GB model and RRP $999 inc GST for the 32GB model and RRP $1,129 inc GST for the 64GB model.Coming in around $130 cheaper, the iPhone 5C doesn't skimp on too many features, but it trades the aluminium frame for a cheaper polycarbonate casing.
