The Apple iPhone 5S will be offered in a “high-grade aluminum” in your choie of silver, space gray and the previously leaked gold. The metallic-cased, 64-bit iPhone 5S will also be twice as fast as the iPhone 5, rocking a brand new system on a chip. Battery life is rated at 10 hours of 3G talk, 10 hours of LTE browsing and up to 250 hours of standby. Pricing is roughly in line with previous models, starting at $199 for a 16GB on a two-year term.
