Finally, the suspense about prices of much-awaited Apple’s latest iPhone 5S and 5C is over. Apple has officially announced prices of its various variants, which will be available in India from 1st of November, exactly two days before the Diwali festival. The prices of various variants of Apple iPhones are as follows:
iPhone 5c (16 GB) Rs 41,900
iPhone 5c (32 GB) Rs 53,500
iPhone 5s (16 GB) Rs 53,500

iPhone 5s will come in Gold, Silver and Space Grey, while the iPhone 5c will be available in Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow and White colour options.
iPhone 5S has screen size of 4 inch with retina display. According to Apple, the iPhone 5s is the first smartphone in the world to be powered by a chip with a 64-bit architecture, instead of the 32-bit chip used in most smartphones. This chip will enable it to run applications and play games at speeds twice as fast as the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5s includes a separate chip, called the “M7 Motion co-processor”, which can track motion data continuously without heavily draining the battery.
The most significant feature of the iPhone 5s is the Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor, which is integrated with the phone’s Home button, to unlock your phone and gives you added security. Besides unlocking, fingerprint recognition can be used for approving purchases from iTunes Store, the App Store, and the iBooks Store.
iPhone 5c is equipped with an 8-megapixel rear camera, 4-inch screen, A6 processor, 1GB RAM and 1.2 megapixel front camera. This phone is largely made of plastic and doesn’t have the aluminum side and glass back found in the iPhone 5. The 5C also is more colourful as this will be available in five different colors.
