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.

iPhone 5s will be available from the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com/au), Apple’s retail stores, and through Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and select Apple Authorised Resellers. iPhone 5s cases will be available in beige, black, blue, brown, yellow and (RED) for a recommended retail price of RRP A$48 inc GST through the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com/au), Apple’s retail stores and select Authorised Apple Resellers.
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.
iPhone 5c comes in blue, green, pink, yellow and white and will be available in Australia for a recommended retail price of RRP $739 inc GST for the 16GB model and RRP $869 inc GST for the 32GB model. iPhone 5c will be available from the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com/au), Apple’s retail stores, and through Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and select Apple Authorised Resellers. iPhone 5c cases will be available in blue, green, pink, yellow, black and white for a recommended retail price of RRP A$39 inc GST through the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com/au), Apple’s retail stores and select Apple Authorised Resellers.
Full details of all the new models can be found over at www.apple.com/au/iphone/, and if you feel like watching the press conference in full, you can do just that right here.

It's a bit disappointing there's no 128Gb or 802.11ac options.

Come on guys, to be fair they did upgrade the chip to 64 bit, increase the front facing camera to 1080p and give the phone a dual-element flash.

If that's not worth a press conference I don't know what is.

This! I refuse to get an iPhone because they're s***, but this is one of the stand out things that makes them s***. That and the fact that android phones let me do cool s***.

i believe $99 is their upfront fee + they have to sign up for 24 month contract. the $700 price here in australia is to buy it outright.

It was just a refresh. I don't know why people expect Apple to completely reinvent the wheel everytime it releases a new phone.

The new S has some great new improvements and looks like a good upgrade. Atleast they aren't like samsung who spam out phones at the rate of 1 every 3 months.

Your fingerprint is saved in an encrypted container on the CPU, it isn't uploaded to apple servers or i cloud.

Iphones are never going to get NFC because that's not the technology path they are persuing. The S has introduced BLE(Bluetooth low energy) which i think is better then NFC. It works up to 50m away, it's fast and you don't have to all crowd around a payment kiosk to make payments, you can just wave it infront of a kiosk.

They aren't "behind" anything. This attitude that anything less than a complete reinvention of the wheel is just silly.

Of course it isn't. It's uploaded to NSA's servers.

If they didn't say "we just reinvented the wheel" every time they released a phone, people wouldn't expect them to reinvent the wheel every time they released a new phone.

I heard they were behind 9/11.

I want to see a film crew go out on to the street and ask people what the iPhone 5S being 64-bit means. Mostly the ones who have seen it in the marketing and know it's 64-bit from the marketing - but even on being told, get their responses.

It would have to be one of the most useless additions.
"oh, so it now supports long long and int64_t in a single mov operation?".

Do people get how stupid the claim to something being "64-bit" is, and how many different things it can mean? Oh, so it now supports 64bit ops? Or is it allowing moving 64bit data? Maybe it's the addressable space? Or maybe it just means every word and pointer uses up twice as much memory as it did before.

I sort of agree, but it's still a move they have to make at some point. I like the idea of my phone supporting 4GB of RAM one day.

yeah, but their made "points" before that are much more marketing than truth, or substance,

this 64bit point might be infact the first "first" they truly have had
