Rogers confirms iPhone 5S price in Canada
Canadian carrier Rogers has now confirmed the price of the latest iPhone 5S, both on-contract and outright.
Apple launched the iPhone 5S along with the budget-friendly iPhone 5C on Sept. 10. The iPhone 5C has already gone up for pre-order, but Apple has only disclosed that iPhone 5S orders will begin from Sept. 20. Apple also confirmed the price of the iPhone 5S in the U.S. and now Canadian customers can also get the pricing details for the latest iPhone from Rogers.
Just like its predecessor, the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5S is also available in 16/32/64GB storage options. If you want to buy the handset from Rogers on a two-year contract, the carrier has a price tag of $229/$329/$439 for the different storage models of the handset (16GB, 32GB and 64GB, respectively).
Similarly, if you want to buy the handset outright from Rogers, then you'll have to splash $719/$819/$919. The price of the iPhone 5S is the same on Apple Online Store if you wish to purchase it outright.
The top-end iPhone 5S packs in high-end features and may attract millions of iFans globally. However, you will have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the latest iPhone 5S. Even though Apple has barely changed the design of the iPhone 5S when compared to the iPhone 5, the new iteration is a step up nonetheless.
First of all, Apple has enhanced the processor speed in the iPhone 5S. The latest smartphone features the A7 processor, which is custom made by Apple. The company claims that the new processor will shorten the processing time when compared to the iPhone 5.
The iPhone 5S also has a co-processor called the M7, which will collect data from the phone's various sensors, including the GPS and accelerometers. Moreover, the M7 processor can process some data without the main A7 chip.
The latest iPhone 5S also features fingerprint scanner called the "Touch ID". The fingerprint sensor is located under the traditional home button of the handset, and allows users to unlock their iPhones just by holding their finger on the home button.

Rogers customers can also reserve their iPhone from the carrier by completing the Rogers Online Reservation form.
