camera-iphone-5siPhone’s are always known for their quality in cameras and Apple has definitely kept that in mind with the new device. The iPhone 5S comes with an 8 Megapixel camera with a new f/2.2 aperture sensor that is 15 percent larger than the iPhone 5. The camera is backed up with a reconstructed flash that can blend its two LED lights to preserve a scene’s natural color balance.

The hardware is coupled with many software features, such as a 28 Megapixel panorama creator and a “burst mode” that captures a series of pictures and picks the best one. The company may not be focusing on camera quality like their other competitors, but comparatively they are doing quite well to stay head to head.

Touch ID

Touch ID is the cherry on the cake for the Apple iPhone 5S. This weird and rumored feature has been confirmed which is a fingerprint sensor built right into the home button. There is a thin capacitive sensor layered on top of the button, which substitutes the traditional PIN or Password types. Other than simply unlocking, the technology can also be utilized to verify purchases and can handle multiple fingerprints from different users.

Data security is a major concern these days, and Apple with their Touch ID technology has stepped up and have also promised that the fingerprint will only be stored locally; they said that you will never see it uploaded to iCloud or any other Apple server, though that’s unlikely to completely overpower privacy concerns.
