“The new iPhone 5s joins the previously considered iPhone 5c as a pair of new options that take the company’s existing flagship iPhone 5 in new directions,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider. “While the 5c takes the 5 into the mainstream with iPod-inspired colors, the 5s raises the bar to create a new luxury tier (although not without color options of its own).”

“Like the iPhone 5c, the new 5s offers expanded support for new LTE bands, enabling support on additional carriers worldwide,” Dilger reports. “Both models also now include $40 worth of first party, chart topping apps exclusive to iOS: Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iPhoto and iMovie.”
