The iPhone 5s is available in three metallic color options -- "space gray," which has a black glass front and a mostly medium toned "gunmetal" gray aluminum back; "gold," which has a white glass front and a mostly gold colored aluminum back; and "silver," which has a white glass front and a mostly silver colored aluminum back. Regardless of color, each includes a "Touch ID" fingerprint sensor embedded in the "home" button (which no longer has the traditional iPhone rounded square icon like earlier models).
