The iPhone 5S (stylized and marketed as iPhone 5s) is a smartphone that was designed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is the seventh generation of the iPhone, succeeding the iPhone 5, and unveiled in September 2013, alongside the iPhone 5C.
The iPhone 5S maintains almost the same external design as its predecessor, the iPhone 5, although the 5S received a new white/gold color scheme in addition to white/silver and space gray/black. The 5S has vastly upgraded internal hardware, however. It introduced the A7 64-bit dual-core system-on-chip, the first 64-bit processor to be used on a smartphone, accompanied by the M7 "motion co-processor". A redesigned home button with Touch ID, a fingerprint recognition system which can be used to unlock the phone and authenticate App Store and iTunes Store purchases, was also introduced. The camera was also updated with a larger aperture and a dual-LED flash optimized for different color temperatures. Earphones known as EarPods were included with the 5S, and Apple released accessories including a case and a dock. It had a 4-inch display, similar to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C.
The iPhone 5S originally shipped with iOS 7, which introduced a revamped visual appearance among other new features. Designed by Jony Ive, iOS 7 departed from skeuomorphic elements used in previous versions of iOS in favor of a flat, colorful design. Among new software features introduced to the iPhone 5S were AirDrop, an ad-hoc Wi-Fi sharing platform; Control Center, a control panel containing a number of commonly used functions; and iTunes Radio, an internet radio service. The 5S is the first iPhone to be supported through six major versions of iOS, from iOS 7 to iOS 12, along with the iPhone 6S and the first-generation iPhone SE which were supported from iOS 9 to iOS 15, and the second iOS device to support six major updates - the first being the iPad 2 which supported iOS versions 4 to 9.
Reception towards the device was positive, with some outlets considering it to be the best smartphone available on the market due to its upgraded hardware, Touch ID, and other changes introduced by iOS 7. Some criticized the iPhone 5S for keeping the design and small display of the iPhone 5, and others expressed security concerns about the Touch ID system. Nine million units of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were sold on the weekend of their release, breaking Apple's sales record for iPhones. The iPhone 5S was the best selling phone on all major U.S. carriers in September 2013.
The iPhone 5S was succeeded as Apple's flagship smartphone by the larger iPhone 6 in September 2014. On March 21, 2016, the iPhone 5S was discontinued following the release of the iPhone SE, which incorporated internal hardware similar to the iPhone 6S while retaining the smaller form factor and design of the 5S.

Quality of our Components.
Not all iPhone components are created equally. When we first started iPhone repairs, Apple would make genuine parts available for companies like ours to carry out repairs. But as they have moved more towards pushing people towards replacing damaged devices, rather than repairing them, they have restricted the availability of some genuine Apple parts. Due to our history of our iPhone repair service we have been able to build relationships with the people who make the screens and we are able to fit high quality components in all of our repairs. Put simply, we don't use cheap screens that we've bought from eBay and we didn't learn our craft from watching YouTube videos.
SimplyFixIt uses Apple Certified Technicians to carry out repairs on Apple devices, including the iPhone 5s. There isn't anyone else in Edinburgh or Glasgow who uses technicians who have been certified by Apple. We back that up with a 12-month warranty on all iPhone 5s repairs.

"Excellent job, I sent it on Tuesday and I received it back fixed 1 week later."
Liquids and iPhone don't mix well. I know that there's lots of stories about rice working, and almost every other repair company talks about fixing liquid damaged devices. We want to be honest with you up front. Nobody can guarantee that an electronic device, which has been wet, will work perfectly again. It can be fine for weeks and then fail out of the blue. The best advice we can give is to get any important data off the device — things like photos — and then move to a new iPhone.
If your device has had liquid damage then SimplyFixIt reserves the right to cancel the repair and issue a refund. It's not that we don't like you, but we want to stand by our warranty. If it is possible to get your data off the device, we will notify you so that you can decide how to proceed.
Front Screen Damage:
* In order to carry out this repair, we need to access your iPhone through the front screen. If the front screen is damaged then we this will need to be repaired at the same time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does Apple charge for an iPhone 5s screen replacement?
According to their website, Apple charge £159 to fix an iPhone 5s screen in the UK. At SimplyFixIt, a new screen costs £50. You will save £109 and can still be confident of the quality. You can even split the cost of the repair into 3 interest free payments using Klarna.
Can SimplyFixIt change the battery in an iPhone 5s?
The way that all batteries work, not just iPhone batteries, is that over time they lose their capacity. In most cases, if you charge a battery fully 500 times, the difference in performance will be very noticeable. 500 charges on a smartphone are probably done in under 2 years, so if your iPhone 5s is over 2 years old, you will see much better performance with a new battery. SimplyFixIt is cheaper than Apple for all iPhone battery replacements. We also offer discounts if you are replacing the battery during a screen replacement.
What is the warranty for an iPhone 5s screen repair?
SimplyFixIt provides a full 12-month warranty on all iPhone 5s screen repairs. This compares to 3-months from Apple. This warranty covers faults, but not damage. Unfortunately no company is able to provide a warranty that covers against another cracked screen.
Can SimplyFixIt unlock an iPhone 5s?
There are lots of shops offering to unlock an iPhone 5s. The truth is that they just take your money and use a 3rd party to do it. No shop can unlock an iPhone 5s because you need a relationship with the mobile network and Apple to do it. All they are doing is acting like a middle-man. The best way to unlock an iPhone is to ask your mobile network to do it. If that's not possible, or if they won't unlock the iPhone for some reason, then MobileUnlocks are a reliable option.
