Is the iPhone 5s still usable in 2020?

Yes, the iPhone 5S is still a very usable iPhone model in 2020 and 2021. It does have it's limitations, but as a basic cellular device to stream music, videos and keep you connected to your family and friends, it's very capable. It's the first Apple device to allow for Touch ID security instead of just a passcode, a smaller 4.0" LCD display, and an 8MP main camera. The best part? Your existing MFI lightning charge cable and 5W wall adapter can still work ;)

Why is there no battery health on the iPhone 5s?

Battery Health was a feature released by Apple in iOS 11.3 and shows battery health for devices iPhone 6 and above. Due to the fact that Apple also claims it does not throttle the CPU and battery limits on the 5S there is no consumer friendly way for the average person to verify if there is a good battery in your phone. Mobile Tech Lab uses advanced diagnostic software to check the amount of cycles and the manufacture date of the battery in our devices and ensure they are good to go.

How much is the iPhone 5s worth in Canada?

The iPhone 5s is not a very popular or valuable device in the Canadian market, but it definitely is popular as a phone for young children or elderly people. The price is often priced very competitively as the device is essentially deprecated and no longer supported by the newest version of iOS - the last software update it can accept is 12.4.6 with the newest version as of this being published is 14.4.4. This does exclude it from certain security updates and newer apps, however it's still a solid phone for keeping in contact with your family and texting or internet browsing, especially with a fresh battery.
