So Apple’s iPhone event is over, and we have two new iPhones to fondle, swipe, break, fingerprint and maybe even use. Well, technically, we have two new iPhones. One of them is last year’s guts in a brand new body. The other one is brand new guts in last year’s body. Half a new phone for everyone! What do you guys think about the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s?
The leaks — as they tend to be now — were on point. There wasn’t any real surprise for those who’ve been tracking the Apple rumour mill. We knew were we getting colour options. We knew there was going to be a fingerprint scanner. We knew there would be goldpagne. We knew basically everything. 64-bit might have been a minor surprise, but even then we heard whispers.
But even without surprise, the 5s automatically vaults into the conversation of one of the best smartphones you can buy. And with the new iOS 7, it will feel a lot different from previous iPhones.
So, what say you? Are you glad you bought the HTC One or Galaxy S4 or went Lumia, or are you excited for September 20 so that you can grab a 5c or 5s?
