It’s made up of 4-inch, 1136 x 640 pixel (326ppi) Retina display. Not taller, wider or more resolute this time around than the iPhone 5.
The new look and feel brings with it a crisper and thinner font; a greater use of colour, and a layering system that gives everything added depth. Gone is the ode to faux leather, green felt, and yellow note paper. That overall vibrant, colourful, with the approach shines through, although it does strike a chord with the serious outer.

The iPhone 5S been has made to look effortless which is no simple task, and in doing so, one can sometimes miss the beauty and power at hand. It's quite pleasing to use and there's stacks of power. It's these simple elements that make the iPhone 5S, one of the best phones on the market.
S for Sensors
The “S” in the iPhone models stands for multiple sensors as well as speed. There are buckets of them in the phone including a dedicated coprocessor called the M7 and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor which lives in the new Home button.
The M7 coprocessor measures motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and compass and is all open to third-party developers. However, the M7 coprocessor has yet to be fully released on launch day so this can't really be given a thumbs up.
Performance and stability
The iPhone 5S comes with the new Apple A7 processor that has a 2x performance and graphics enhancement which is double the power, according to Apple's figures. The processor also allows it to take iOS 7 into the realm of 64-bit, compared to the 32-bit processing of the iPhone 5.
It runs faster (but still not as fast as iOS 6) and is a lot more stable.
The biggest graphical change is a refining of the iconography of the user interface making it more button like. On the call answer screen for example that means a circular button that slides from left to right rather than an arrow in a big green box.
The button also goes through apps like the Music app, Keyboard (Shift and Delete now get a bolder look) and even the power off slider is a button to slide across the screen.
Apple's CarPlay compatibility feature in iOS 7.1 isn't commercially available in cars yet, however there has been a demo of the new feature at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Touch ID fingerprint sensor can unlock the phone with one of five fingers from either hand or even someone else's hand..
