The iPhone 5C went on pre-order last week, iOS 7 came out today and BBM hits the iPhone this weekend but for iPhone users the biggest thing to happen this week is the launch of the iPhone 5S this Friday. The 5S is the most fastest, most powerful iPhone yet with an even better camera and really cool fingerprint scanner called Touch ID and for many is the iPhone to upgrade to. Well, if the 5C isn’t for you and you’re ready to upgrade to the 5S here’s what you need to know to pick it up on launch day.
Unlike the 5C, there were no pre-orders for the 5S and rumors are that supply on Friday will be very low. There are rumors floating around that supply issues is why Apple didn’t put it up for pre-order, they want to make they had enough ready to go on launch day (note: Apple usually sells millions of iPhones during launch weekend and they probably have millions ready for the 5S they just wanted to be extra cautious here). Anyways, if you want that new 5S right away here’s where you can grab it.
As you’ve heard, this week Apple unveiled not one but two new iPhones, the long rumored iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. From all the rumors and leaks it seems that we’ve seen everything with these phones months ago but this week Apple made it all official.
Both the iPhone 5S and 5C go on sale next Friday (and the 5C is available for pre-order tomorrow), but to help you decide on which iPhone is right for you we’ve rounded up everything that’s new and what you need to know about in each phone below.
