Apple’s iPhone 5s presents a curious situation: It will be an easy purchasing decision—or a rather complicated one. For those who have never owned an iPhone, this is the model to get. The $100 premium the 5s commands over Apple’s other new handset—the colorful, if waxy, iPhone 5c—is easily justified by its more advanced hardware and feature set. It’s an easy call for users of earlier iPhone 4 and 4s models, too. But for current owners of last year’s top dog—the now discontinued iPhone 5—the decision will not be so simple. In fact, a close look at the latest device from Cupertino reveals that iPhone 5 owners may be wise to save their upgrade for the next iteration.
