This year Apple broke its traditional release cycle strategy by unveiling two new iPhones: the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. In our video roundup, V3 editor Madeline Bennett and V3 reporter Alastair Stevenson discuss the announcements, key technology updates and how the phones will fare in the market.
The iPhone 5S is a standard upgrade to Apple's former flagship, the iPhone 5. Featuring the same visual design as the iPhone 5, outside of its new space grey, silver and gold colour options all the 5S major upgrades were internal. Key among these were the addition of Apple's new A7 processor and Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
However, despite being at the lower end on paper, it was the iPhone 5C that drew the most attention. This is because while everyone was expecting a much lower price tag than the iPhone 5, the 5C still costs a hefty £469. The iPhone 5C is the first Apple smartphone to come with a plastic outer chassis and features a host of bright colour options, not too dissimilar to those offered on Nokia's line of Lumia Windows Phones.
Both the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C are set for release in the UK on 20 September. Check back with V3 then for full reviews of both devices.
