Once inside, I Fixit says:
As we ready ourselves to delve into the delightful innards of the 5s, let’s check out some of its tech specs:
  • Apple A7 processor with 64-bit architecture
  • M7 motion co-processor
  • 16, 32, or 64 GB Storage
  • 4-inch retina display with 326 ppi
  • 8 MP I Sight camera (with larger 1.5µ pixels) and a 1.2MP Face Time camera.
  • Fingerprint identity sensor built into the home button
  • Available in three different colors: space gray, silver, and gooooooold (or as we call them, Not-at-all-the-Color-of-Space, Second Place Medal, and Bling!).
