I don’t even know why Apple bothered with the iPhone 6, because it will go the way of the iPhone 5C: a niche product; a consolation prize; the budget choice for Apple loyalists; something you get begrudgingly and regret later. The iPhone 6 Plus is the superior phone.
As an incremental update, the new iPhone 5s borrows heavily from its predecessor, building upon its solid foundation yet adding an all-new 64-bit A7 processor, the Touch ID fingerprint reader, a totally revamped operating system, while also learning a few new software tricks that enhance how the camera operates.
Apple’s iPhone 5S and 5C are still two days away from officially hitting the market, but with iOS 7 rolling out today, the company is as usual lifting the review embargo for its latest devices a little early. The consensus is predominantly positive for both devices.
