Apple picking at its finest

Fall is apple season where apple picking is a must. This fall though, apples aren’t only picked from the trees. New Apple products arrived in all different stores, having consumers wonder if this Apple product was better than the last. Apple pickers have different standards, some enjoy crispy red apples, while others may enjoy tart and green, just like the consumers of the new iPhone 5c, and 5s.

On September 20, 2013, these new iPhones were released, creating the seventh generation of this product.

Both iPhones have new and improved technology that consumers both find useful, and not.

A major addition to this new generation are the various colors available in both the 5c, and 5s. The iPhone 5s has the original white, and black colors as well as the new edition, shiny gold. The iPhone 5s costs $199.

Apple decided to make the iPhone 5c out of plastic to have an affordable phone for the middle class, that retails for $99. This change allowed apple to create different colored backs for this version. The colors are green, yellow, blue, pink, and white.

“Choosing the color of the phone is a tool that helps express who you are,” Meghan Weintraub ‘15 said.

While color may be a hit, the new user interface is creating a problem for some consumers. There is a growing group of users who are experiencing motion sickness when using the new iPhone.

“The ios7 is very nauseating, the apps open and close too quickly, it messes with both my eyes and my brain,” Sophia Stanley ‘16 said.

The applications actually sway with the movement of the phone creating a whole new effect. Along with this feature, the ios7 is proven to have faster internet connection and networking.

“The new iPhone 5c is super fast, it literally takes under three seconds to load either an app or the internet,” Eve Korus ‘17 said.

Even given that some users are affected by the new interface, the general public has taken to the new iPhone. According to Apple, three days after the launch, a record of over 9 million iPhone 5s and 5c were sold.

Like the old saying, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, although the iPhone has some issues, it continues to have success like it’s predecessors.

Blake Rubin, Web A&E Editor
When asked what career she wants to pursue, Blake Rubin ’16 replied, “Doctor, definitely.” Not many high school students know exactly what career path they want to follow, but Rubin is confident in her choice. “I’ve always loved helping people and making [them] feel better,” Rubin continued. “I have a cousin who’s my role model, and she works in a hospital with trauma patients. She always talks [to me] about it.” Although Rubin does not want to specialize in trauma patients, her cousin’s career path inspired her to become a doctor. She is still deciding what type of doctor she aspires to be and is open to being anything from a dentist to a pediatrician. However she ruled out being a surgeon. “I can’t handle that,” she said with a laugh. Not only is Rubin passionate about her future career path, but she also has many other passions. Rubin has started her second year in Inklings and her first year as the web A&E editor. Her all time favorite story that she wrote covers teachers’ reactions to Yik Yak. “Letting other people read your work [is the best part about Inklings and] trying to collect all the interviews before [the] deadline is the hardest part,” reflected Rubin. This year in journalism she hopes to “increase [her] writing skills [and] focus more on writing new opinion pieces.” In addition to Inklings, Rubin does cross country running, Kool to Be Kind and Unified Sports.
