The new Apple iPhone 5S and 5C went on sale Friday and mine has been ordered. Usually I wouldn’t be upgrading my phone, but this time it was a major need. Last winter I decided it would be a good idea to send my old iPhone through the washing machine. Needless to say it didn’t make it out alive. Since I wasn’t do for an upgrade at the time, and there was no way I was going to spend $500 on a new one, I opted to use my 6 year old Blackberry.
I never realized how much I loved my iPhone until I had to go back to a Blackberry that had a scroll ball. So the new iPhone 5S should be at my door the first week in October and I can’t wait to check out the new iOS 7 that it has on it.
