Apple is releasing its new iOS 7 operating system for phones and tablets on Wednesday and will start selling two new iPhones on Friday. The Associated Press has spent the past week reviewing both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, which both have the new iOS 7 software. Both reviews and sidebars have been sent, along with photos accompanying the story.

Here's the lineup:

DIGITAL LIFE-TECH TEST-APPLE IOS 7 SOFTWARE

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — Many of the changes in Apple's new iOS software are cosmetic. It didn't take me long to realize that deeper down, the new iOS 7 software is the same as the one I've come to know. The new software does have several functional improvements, but those can take time to stumble upon. The good news is that even if you never discover them, you can still use the iPhone or iPad the way you had before. By Technology Writer Anick Jesdanun.

DIGITAL LIFE-TECH TEST-NEW IPHONES

CUPERTINO, Calif. — Passcodes are such a pain that I've relaxed the security settings on my Android phone so that I'm asked for it less often. So when Apple introduced a way to bypass passcodes using a fingerprint, I had a lot of fun unlocking the phone over and over again. The fingerprint sensor comes with the new iPhone 5S. That alone is worth the extra $100 that the 5S model costs over an iPhone 5C. Apple is making its new iOS 7 software free for existing phones, but the fingerprint sensor and other features may draw you to a new phone instead. By Technology Writer Anick Jesdanun.
