Apple released their new iPhone 5s today at their annual press conference. They debuted two model iPhones for the first time ever, including the iPhone 5c and the iPhone 5s I think the 5c stands for 5 color, but realistically it stands for 5 cheap since it’s the less expensive model. The 5s received most of the new features ; below is have listed the new iPhone specs and what they mean to NSD readers:

Implementing the social features that Spotify offers would bring iTunes up to speed with today’s social networking.
I always am updating my music library with the newest tunes and social integration in a future iTunes release would be a great feature to share new songs with friends. I hope Apple is reading!
