Thanks Joe for all your help. Having you to consult with makes me think of how those who go to shrinks feel comforted in knowing that if the going gets rough they can always call their 'therapist'.

It’s in Apple’s DNA that technology alone is not enough. That it’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our hearts sing.

iPhone 5s Recommendations

Last week Apple released two new iPhones, the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c.

Year after year, the main reasons I consider when deciding whether to upgrade to a new iPhone are as follows:

  • better photos
  • faster performance
  • more features
  • new design

Apple has managed to achieve all of the above with this year's premiere iPhone 5s.

For customers with an iPhone 4S or older iPhone, upgrading to the iPhone 5s is an easy recommendation. The improvements to the camera, speed, and larger screen size are well worth the upgrade.

For many customers with an iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s is still a worthy upgrade. As invaluable a utility as the iPhone provides in one's life, even relatively incremental upgrades to crucial functions can add appreciable value.

Here are three ways upgrading to an iPhone 5s can improve your life:

  1. Save time and improve security by using Touch ID. Initially limited to unlocking your iPhone and making purchases on the iTunes Store or the App Store, Touch ID also promises to replace the entire (broken, infurating, insecure) password system with a new paradigm of security and convenience.
  2. Take better photos with the one camera you always have handy.
  3. Get more done on a device that brings desktop-class performance (equivalent to that of the MacBook Air from a few years ago) to the palm of your hand, ready to go at a moment's notice.

If you feel any of these improvements would benefit you, I recommend upgrading to the iPhone 5s.

Most people should go with the 32 GB version to provide plenty of storage space for photos, videos, music, podcasts, audiobooks, apps, and data. If you take a lot of photos or videos, or like to carry a lot of music, podcasts, audiobooks, or other media on your device, go with 64 GB so you don't have to worry too much about freeing up space.

If you don't mind syncing regularly to import photos and videos to your Mac and remove old stuff to make room on your device, you could get by with 16 GB.

I don't recommend the iPhone 5c for most iPhone users, because it uses technology that's almost identical to the year-old iPhone 5. The iPhone 5s, with its better camera, faster speed, and Touch ID, is well worth the additional $100.
