Since January, I have followed every twist and turn of the the saga that became the iPhone 5S. Even back when we thought it it might be the iPhone 6. Beyond the professional interest, mine was personal as well. I hadn’t upgraded my own phone for a while and I was limping along with an iPhone 4. It was slow, the camera was not good and then the home button started to go.
I could have gone out and gotten an iPhone 5, but I thought it would be worth waiting it out for the next one, sometime over the summer. And then noises circulated that there were delays, perhaps related to a rumored fingerprint sensor. Is The iPhone 5S Fingerprint Reader Worth The Wait?, I asked at the end of April.
