Start64!Apple's new iPhone 5S is 56 times more powerful than its "ancestor", the first iPhone, launched just six years ago. The new 64-bit A7 chip may be powerful enough to run a laptop, but it's not the only high-tech aspect of the new phone. Photography and video get a boost, while the new fingerprint recognition pushes security into a new league - K. Stewart reports

No real surprises for those following the rumours, but like the in-hand operation of the 5S itself, Apple's 2013 iPhone press conference was a pleasing demonstration of numerous component parts coming together into a well honed competitive strategy.

No panic. No down-market rush. No iWatch or iTV. Not even a hint.

Just the latest generation iPhone and a new approach to the mid-range smartphone market.
