As you may have already heard, the 5s is rather similar in overall hardware to the iPhone 5, though there are a few changes in key places. As you can see in the above image, it's available in three colors: space grey (which has black highlights on top and bottom), white and -- as rumored so many times -- gold. Also, the gold 5s color is actually pretty nice. It's lined with white on the top and bottom, and the gold itself is a rather subtle color; it's not going to blind anybody when you take it out of your pocket. It has a little bit of a shine to it as well, depending on which angle you hold the phone at. The white version is basically the same as we've enjoyed on the iPhone 5, and the space grey is more of a gunpowder look, with black highlights on the top and bottom. In terms of performance, the A7 promises twice the CPU and GPU speeds as the A6, so we're definitely looking forward to giving this a solid go in our review -- especially since a brief amount of time is never sufficient to judge a phone's performance. It was definitely quite fast when we used it, and it didn't sputter or give us any reason to believe it can't handle most if not all possible tasks. It's able to store up to five individual fingerprints, which is helpful if you have multiple people in your family who want to use the same device. Once everything is set up, the unit we played with worked flawlessly, as all we had to do was place our finger on the button to unlock the screen. It made for a much faster and enjoyable experience, one that will likely appease plenty of users who aren't happy with the idea of putting passcodes on their phone.All told, the iPhone 5s is essentially what we expected it to be. It's mostly an iterative improvement over the iPhone 5, but Touch ID is a great addition and some of the new camera features are clever; not to mention the fact that iOS 7 is a huge change over previous versions of the OS.
