Apple adds colour with the cheaper iPhone 5C
Apple has replaced the iPhone 5 with not one but two new iPhones including the all-new and cheaper iPhone 5C in a range of five colours.
The iPhone 5C will go on sale on September 20 – the same day as the higher-end iPhone 5S.
The iPhone 5C is made from a single piece of polycarbonate plastic reinforced with steel that also forms the device’s antenna.
It is finished with a hard durable coating and with a bright glossy surface.
It has the same 4-inch Retina Display seen in the previous iPhone 5 and the new iPhone 5S.
The iPhone 5C is available in two memory capacities – 16GB and 32GB – and in five colours: blue, yellow, pink, green and white.
Preloaded on the iPhone 5C will be the new iOS 7 operating system and with a wallpaper that is colour matched to exterior of the device.
There will also be a range of silicone cases in six colours with holes cut out of the back to reveal the colour of the iPhone 5C and allow users to mix and match different colour combinations.
Apple has retained the A6 processor for the iPhone 5C that was used in the iPhone 5 and also has the same 8-megapixel camera.
But one new addition is the new high definition front-facing FaceTime camera.
The new iPhone 5C will be priced at $739 (16GB) and $869 (32GB) and will be available from September 20.
