iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C Tech Specs

Share this:

UPDATE: 3:00pm, September 10: The tech specs below have been updated to the beautiful new iPhones that Apple has announced at their event earlier today.  This post will be moved relatively soon to a new page featuring iPhone and iPad comparisons.  Until then, see the specs below. Also, if you tweet or share this post, it will still count as 2x the number of entries. 

It is less than 24 hours until Tim Cook comes on stage at Town Hall at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California to talk about what Apple has done this past year; iOS 7 and of course, two new iPhones.  Apple is expected to announce a release date for iOS 7 (probably September 18th if history tells us anything about past Apple’s iOS releases), the iPhone 5S (the successor to the iPhone 5), the iPhone 5C (a new inexpensive iPhone unlike anything we are used to) and potentially a software update to the Apple TV.  Recently, a rumor came out saying that the new iPad 5 and iPad mini could be announced too, but it is highly unlikely Apple will announce four major products on the same day.

The tech specs of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are shown below in the style Apple lists tech specs based completely on rumors.  We won’t know for sure about any of the specs until Apple officially announces them tomorrow.  To compare, the iPhone 5 tech specs are also listed.  This blog post should be updated again tomorrow or Wednesday with the legit specs that Apple gives us.

Tweet or Share this post for 2x the number of entries to enter in the September 2013 contest to win an $20 iTunes gift card or $20 Google play gift card, n universal armband, a month subscription to Hulu plus and one more surprise!  Tweet about it by tagging @idevicegeekblog or share on your social network and email me at idevicegeekblog@gmail.com with your name and link to where you shared it. Good luck!
