Now that the iPhone 5s launch event hype has subsided, it’s time to take a breather and think about your options. If you already own an iPhone 5, there are plenty of reasons to stay put. Sure, that fancy new Touch ID fingerprint sensor looks cool, and the camera enhancements are tempting. But don’t be blinded by the shiny newness of Apple’s sequel. Here’s why you should hold off on getting yourself the iPhone 5s. After all, the iPhone 6 is just around the corner.
Want iOS 7 and its fancy new features like improved multitasking and Control Center? Or are you just itching for your phone to have a brand new look? All you have to do is download the free iOS 7 update on Sept 18, and you’ll get the same colorful new design that will make your iPhone 5 virtually indistinguishable from the 5s. The physical dimensions of the two devices are exactly the same, and nothing has changed physically other than the new color options, fingerprint sensor and dual flash.
