We’ve previously covered how the iPhone has changed through the ages, so we’ll skip right to looking at how the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C compare to the iPhone 5.

Many hoped for innovation and something to get excited about, but early impressions are that Apple has fallen short. Apple tends to keep the chip clock speed and RAM a secret, so it's only when everyone gets hands-on with the devices and gets to examine its innards that we'll see how it all stacks up.The A7 chip will mean that the iPhone 5S will run approximately three times faster than its predecessor, but otherwise there's little here other than what we've seen before, except with a new lick of paint.
