Another day, another Apple iPhone! And in this case, make that two. Apple introduced two new iPhones -- the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C -- on Tuesday, Sept. 10, in addition to a redesigned mobile operating system, iOS 7. The iPhone 5S includes a new iSight camera, faster wireless connection and its most forward-thinking feature yet -- a new fingerprint identity sensor. The built-in Touch ID will allow consumers to unlock the iPhone, and make purchases from the iTunes store, App Store, and the iBooks Store with just his or her fingerprint. It comes in either gray, silver or gold, while the iPhone 5C, encased in plastic, comes in more playful colors but doesn't boast the fingerprint feature. (With a contract, the iPhone 5S is priced at $199/16GB, $299/32GB, $399/64GB. The iPhone 5C will be $99 for 16GB and $199 for 32GB.)
