Iphone 5s rear camera replacement
Apple purchased biometric company AuthenTec back in 2012 for $356 million. The next year, the iPhone 5s was launched and was the first iOS device equipped with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner. This was a mainstay feature for the iPhone until 2017's iPhone X replaced the biometric scanner with Face ID.

It comes with the same power and beautiful design as the other S10 models, but at a more modest $750 price tag. Samsung isn’t the first to dance this fandango — the iPhone XR is Apple’s way of offering the iPhone XS’s power in a lower-cost package. With an identical price point, it’s inevitable these two phones will go head-to-head. Which comes out on top? We found out.
