About This Brand

The iPhones complement their sleek designs and intuitively simple operation with top-notch displays, cameras, and music players. They also provide superb ease of use via a highly interactive multi-touch screen and a customizable icon-driven interface. Newer iPhone models have a fascinating, built-in voice-activated "assistant" called Siri that's fairly good at following complex orders. The newest iPhones, the 5s and 5c, have 4-inch displays and support for fast 4G LTE data networks. The flagship 5s is the first phone we've seen with a 64-bit processor and a fingerprint reader, which is built into the Home button. The 5c models have colorful outer shells.
