The iPhone 5S has been announced at an event in California. Maintaining the same design as the previous generation, following the standard launch cycle set by Apple, the hardware has seen a considerable upgrade.
The successor to the Xbox 360 is strongly rumoured to be entering its manufacturing stages, according to reports.
