Apple has, as expected, shown off two new versions of its iPhone handset range -- the 5S and 5C smartphones.
Apple iPhone 5s
The top end smartphones comes with an all-new A7 chip, which Apple says makes the iPhone 5s the world's first smartphone with 64-bit desktop-class architecture. Apple also engineered iOS 7 and all the built-in apps to maximize the performance of the A7 chip.
The new smartphone also comes with an 8 megapixel iSight camera with True Tone flash and Touch ID, a fingerprint based sensor for unlocking the handset.
"iPhone 5s is the most forward-thinking smartphone in the world, delivering desktop class architecture in the palm of your hand," said
Every iPhone 5s includes the new M7 motion coprocessor that gathers data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass to offload work from the A7 for improved power efficiency. The M7 motion coprocessor continuously measures motion data, even when the device is asleep, and saves battery life for pedometer or other fitness apps that use the accelerometer all day.
The air interface supports LTE connectivity, with 13 different frequency bands.

Apple iPhone 5c
The 5c smartphone comes with an 8-megapixel camera, and the lower powered A6 chip, but also supports more LTE frequency bands and comes with iOS7 software.
"iPhone 5c is everything iPhone 5 was and more, in an all-new design packed with great features," said
The iPhone 5c features an all-new design crafted from a single, hard-coated polycarbonate body with a steel reinforced frame, which also holds the internal components and doubles as the iPhone 5c's multiband antenna
