Brian just went hands on with Apple's new iPhone 5S, showing off its performance (courtesy of the new 64-bit A7 SoC), Touch ID fingerprint sensor and camera features. Check it all out in the video below:

    Too bad they didn't have an Infinity Blade 3 demo. Reply

    I may be wrong... but iOS7 seems way faster on 5S then on 5. Haven't tested GM on 5 yet. But all previous beta wont anywhere need as "instant" and "smooth" as the video as shown.

    And this is with new Hardware that i think still has some more potential from Software and Compiler optimization.

    @Brian Klug, Can you unlock the phone via fingerprint scan without pressing the physical unlock button first? Thank you both for the great coverage! Reply

    Time to organize a kickstarter to send Brian Klug to touchscreen typing school? ;) Reply

    Should get him a 70D or something while we're at it... I kid!

    Nice hands on video, I'm rather jealous of the fingerprint reader... Seems like a good alternative to the pins and patterns (unlike Google's face detect thing). Moto had something exactly like this on the Atrix over two years ago, I wonder why it didn't gain any traction on Android? (AFAIK no other Android phone ever had a print reader)

    Also, how hard would it be to lift a print from the glass display or elsewhere and then crate a fake (silicon? Latex?) fingerprint to full the sensor? Reply

    Yikes, ghastly typos.

    create a fake... to fool...

    Apparently this is suppose to read sub-dermal as well so the it should be more resistant to commonly available methods such as the ones you describe. Reply
