You do not need to go on a contract with a wireless service provider to get the celebrated iPhone 5s. Just get the trademark white package—which contains pair of Apple EarPods, storage and travel case, home adapter, a SIM card, and the phone itself—and you are free to use the 5s in any manner you so choose.

Originally loaded with iOS 6.0, but now running iOS 9, the iPhone 5s uses an aluminum-based body with a Space Gray or Silver finish. At 3.95 ounces and a depth of 0.3 inches, it was thinner and lighter than previous iterations of the iPhone. The 4-inch LED-backlit touchscreen is a technological marvel; using Apple’s trademark Retina Display, it produces a resolution of 640 by 1,136 pixels, delivering images and video with amazing crispness and clarity.

The iPhone 5s uses the 64-bit Apple A7 system-on-a-chip, which includes a dual-core 1.3GHz processor for multitasking and quad-core PowerVR G6430 for graphics and video processing. Plus, the 1 GB of DDR3 RAM is more than enough for rapid data transfer.

With its dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, the iPhone 5s supports fast 4G LTE speeds and connects you to the Internet fast and efficiently. There’s also Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity for streaming audio to and from a wide range of compatible devices that include car stereos, laptops, portable media players, and even other smartphones. For taking pictures, you can rely on the rear-facing 8-megapixel (MP) iSight camera, which has 3x digital zoom and records 1080p high-definition (HD) video. And there’s a 1.2MP FaceTime camera in the front for chatting with friends and family, taking pictures at a HD quality of 1,280-by-960 resolution, and recording 720p HD video.

The iPhone 5s is available in 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB configuration for storing all your digital content. For power, the smartphone relies on a non-removable 1,560 mAh lithium-polymer battery, which provides up to 10 hours of talk time and video playback, as well as up to 40 hours of audio playback.
