The iPhone 5s represents several firsts for Apple and the smartphone industry in general. Not only does the device feature 64-bit architecture, but the latest iPhone integrates a fingerprint sensor and independent M7 motion coprocessor.

Of course the iPhone 5s is no different, and while reviews have been overwhelmingly positive some users have reported problems. Complaints and issues can always be brought to Apple's attention either in iPhone support communities or at the retail store Genius Bar. Besides troubleshooting, keep in mind the iPhone 5s comes with a one-year AppleCare warranty. Usually devices can be repaired or replaced in-store.

$10,000 Solid Gold iPhone Case Now Available

If you weren’t able to get your hands on the coveted gold iPhone 5s last month when the new model was launched, accessory designer Miansai has just the thing to satisfy your needs. For the low price of $10,000, the company is offering a case made out of actual solid gold.

Solid Gold iPhone Case

Company founder Michael Andrew Saiger told Market Watch the product was initially “a kind of joke,” but to his surprise people have “loved it.” The ostentatious case is admittedly impractical when it comes to protecting your iPhone, but with a five-figure sticker price it serves as more of a status symbol than anything else. Both the front and corners of the phone are exposed. Also, solid gold isn’t the strongest metal, so if you drop it, don’t count on the case to adequately safeguard your device.
