It's the moment that iPhone photographers have been waiting for:  Apple has released photos taken on its brand-new iPhone 5S. The more high-end device that Apple released today has bigger pixels on a sensor with a 15 percent larger active area and a 1/3EV brighter lens. Combined, these features should help capture more light and therefore (hopefully) take better photos than the phone's predecessor. 

The iPhone 5S camera measures in at 8 megapixels, with an f/2.2 aperture lens. New features enabled by the phone's A7 processor include slow motion video, burst mode, improved image stabilization and better auto focusing. 

Here is some of the EXIF data we pulled from the flower photo (top).
