iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5 specs compared
Apple announced two new smartphones today, which include the iPhone 5S and the colorful iPhone 5C. We are not going to compare the iPhone 5C with the 5S because it has the same hardware specifications as the 5.
Below is the iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5 specs compared, before we start we would like to point out that if you visit the Apple Store you will notice they are not advertising the 2012 iPhone 5 anymore, so this means they are really pushing the two new phones they announced today.
