A Closer Look At Apple's New Space Gray iPhone 5S

So Apple released the iPhone 5S in two new colors they call "space gray" and gold while keeping the original silver on board as a third color option, and that has confused some people. When Apple introduced the iPhone 5, it offered it in a slate black hue which now has been replaced by the iPhone 5S and its cool sounding space gray flavor, which is really a lighter gray aluminum hue compared to the much darker slate of the iPhone 5 and even the iPad mini. In addition to that, Apple has also silently updated its slate black iPod touch, iPod nano and iPod Shuffle with this new space gray colorway.

Customers now have a option to pick the new space gray color when purchasing a 5th generation iPod touch, 7th generation iPod nano and current iPod Shuffle. Oddly enough, the iPad mini hasn't seen the same color update and is still being offered in the original slate black color. We think that once Apple updates its iPads, it'll also offer its new space gray option instead to compliment the rest of its lineup. Of course the new fancy gold option is exclusive to the iPhone 5S.

Apple Officially Debuts The iPhone 5S: Everything You Need To Know

As expected, today Apple has revealed the iPhone 5 successor dubbed the iPhone 5S. Nearly identical to the iPhone 5, Apple's iPhone 5S sports an all-aluminum chamfered-edge construction with updated hardware as well as new features. Still boasting a 4-inch Retina display, the iPhone 5S will be offered in two new flavors besides silver - gold and gray. For security, the iPhone 5S features a new highly anticipated redesigned home button made of laser-cut sapphire crystal instead of plastic which acts as a lens for the embedded Touch ID fingerprint sensor that can read your finger at any orientation.

iPhone 5S Redesigned Home Button With Touch ID Fingerprint Sensor Confirmed

Hours before Apple is planned to announce the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, new leaks have surfaced today showing the user guide documentation for the iPhone 5S which consequently confirms the highly rumored redesigned home button with an embedded fingerprint sensor Apple is calling the Touch ID sensor. It's essentially a silver metal ring surrounding a physical home button which may or may not light up when using Siri or possibly function as a long-awaited notification LED. This new feature will allow users to set a biometric password using their fingerprint to gain quick access to their iPhone 5S with a simple touch or swipe over the Touch ID sensor ring. Another interesting detail when looking at the iPhone 5S's redesigned home button we can see that Apple's iconic square logo has disappeared entirely off the face of the button leaving only the new metal ring as a hopeful icon replacement.

We're also expecting Apple to offer the iPhone 5S in two additional new colors in addition to the silver and black slate like champagne gold and graphite gray. Of course we'll know how it works and much more very soon.

Apple's Champagne Colored iPhone 5S Shown In All Its Sparkly Glory

One thing is for sure, Apple's iPhone 5S is coming very soon and although it'll look just like the iPhone 5, it'll come with a few hardware improvements that will make it the superior iPhone model. But apparently that's not all because Apple plans to introduce a third color that will accompany the black slate and silver aluminum colorways and that color is gold; or to be more specific a more subtle and more delicate tone of gold - champagne. Apple will allegedly hold an event on September 10th (literally just days away) to announce both the iPhone 5S and the more colorful, cheaper, plastic-made iPhone 5C. The date and champagne-colored iPhone 5S have also been confirmed by Taiwanese supply chain sources close to Reuters. The iPhone 5S will notably come with an improved back-facing camera as well as a new dual-LED flash.
