Gone are the days of nosy people snooping through your iPhone!

The home button of the new iPhone has reportedly been replaced by a sensor that will allow users to  sign into the phone without having to use a PIN or password but rather with just one touch as long as the fingerprints match.

The 5S phone is said to look very similar to the iPhone 5 but with new metallic finish colors, including gold, silver and space gray.  Another change will be the faster processor and improved camera flash featuring an 8-megapixel iSight camera with true tone flash technology.

The iPhone 5s comes with the new softwareiOS 7, which is engineered for 64-bit technology and featuring hundreds of great new features, including Control Center, Notification Center, improved Multitasking, AirDrop, enhanced Photos, Safari, Siri and iTunes Radio, which increases  its speed dramatically.

The iPhone 5S will be available in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model and $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB model.

Will you be buying or upgrading to the 5S?
