iPhone 5s FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a planning to get an iPhone 5s or currently own one? Do you have any questions about it? Here’s Sydney CBD Repair Team answering those queries.
Will the iPhone 5S have a larger battery?
Apple doesn’t disclose the milliamp hour capacity (mAh) of its batteries. Rather, you get hourlong estimates for things like talk time over 3G, standby time, and video playback time, such as up to 10 hours talk time. Battery life has been slightly extended for the iPhone 5S and 5C, Apple says, listing them both at 250 hours of standby time versus the iPhone 5’s 225 hours of standby time.
Is there a visible difference between the iPhone 5’s slate color and the 5S’ ‘space gray’?
Yes indeedy. Space gray is much lighter. This photo shows the two side by side, with the iPhone 5S on the right.
Will I be able to use the iPhone 5S and 5C abroad?
Yes, the iPhone 5S and 5C are global phones, regardless of the GSM or CDMA network you buy it for. That means that if you’re using the Verizon or Sprint versions on their home CDMA networks, they’ll switch to GSM overseas to send texts and make calls.
Data roaming is definitely possible, but you should check with your carrier before setting foot on a plane to find out their coverage details.
Do both new phones use Lightning ports?
That’s right; Apple is committed to the charger standard introduced with the iPhone 5.
The 5S’ flash has changed. Will my iPhone 5 case still fit?
It really depends on how large the camera window is on a particular case. The iPhone 5S has a vertical dual-LED flash, so cases with narrow or teardrop-shaped windows for the camera module could obstruct the iPhone 5S’ new stacked flashes. The good news is that most iPhone 5 cases have a large oblong opening that should be roomy enough for the new configuration.
What’s this Touch ID fingerprint lock all about?
With Touch ID, you’ll be able to almost instantaneously unlock your iPhone 5S and confirm iTunes purchases. At this point, developers will not be able to extend Touch ID scanning to other forms of authentication or purposes.

What’s significant about the iPhone 5S having a 64-bit chip?
According to Apple, the big deal about the 5S being the first smartphone to feature 64-bit is twofold: faster gaming and faster performance overall. Apple is touting the new chip with gameplay that matches standalone consoles and desktop devices.
What’s different about the iPhone 5S?
Not much. It’s got the same dimensions and screen specs as the iPhone 5. Apple replaces the black color with one futuristically named “space gray,” and adds a pale gold (or champagne) shade. The camera gets a larger sensor to let in more light, burst mode, and other behind-the-scenes features. Inside, there’s also a new processor (but more on this below.)
Can more than one person use the Touch ID?
Yes, you can save multiple profiles for different fingers — yours or even someone else’s (like your spouse, kids, and so on.)
Which LTE bands will the phones use?
In the US and Canada, various iPhone models support these bands: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, and 26 (but not 7). US carriers AT&T, Aio Wireless (an AT&T subsidiary), Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Virgin Mobile (a Sprint subsidiary) will all support LTE, along with regional carriers.
