Apple Introduces iPhone 5c
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Posted by: Staff

Apple today introduced iPhone 5c in five colors - blue, green, pink, yellow and white. According to the company, iPhone 5c is built on a foundation of features people know and love like the beautiful 4-inch Retina display, blazing fast performance of the A6 chip, and the 8 megapixel iSight camera - all while delivering great battery life. iPhone 5c comes with more LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world, a new FaceTime HD camera, and iOS 7, the most significant iOS update since the original iPhone.

"iPhone 5c is everything iPhone 5 was and more, in an all-new design packed with great features," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing." iPhone 5c is designed with a beautiful polycarbonate enclosure that looks and feels so solid in your hand."

iPhone 5c features an all-new design crafted from a single, hard-coated polycarbonate body with a steel reinforced frame for a solid, sturdy feel. The steel frame holds the internal components and also doubles as the iPhone 5c's multiband antenna. The enclosure is one continuous and seamless structure that is finished with a hard coat for a durable and incredibly glossy surface. To complement the all-new iPhone 5c design, Apple created soft, matte, microfiber-lined cases in a very intentional contrast to the glossy, hard coat finish. These sleek silicone cases with unique circular patterns let splashes of color show through, and with five iPhone 5c colors and six cases to choose from, you can mix and match for dozens of fun combinations.

iPhone 5c comes with all the features customers love in iPhone 5, and more. The Apple-designed A6 chip provides incredible performance and power efficiency, all while delivering great battery life, so almost everything you do on iPhone 5c is blazing fast, from launching apps and loading web pages to downloading email attachments. iPhone 5c features a stunning 4-inch Retina display and an 8 megapixel iSight camera, the most popular camera in the world. iPhone 5c also includes a new FaceTime HD camera for even better FaceTime calls and self-portraits, and with iOS 7, you can make audio-only FaceTime calls for the first time.

iPhone 5c makes it even easier to connect to high-speed networks with support for up to 13 LTE wireless bands, more than any other smartphone in the world. With download speeds up to 100 Mbps, you can browse, download and stream content even faster. iPhone 5c includes dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support for up to 150 Mbps and Bluetooth 4.0. iPhone 5c delivers an amazing 10 hours of talk time on 3G networks, up to 10 hours of web browsing on Wi-Fi and LTE networks and up to 8 hours on 3G networks, and up to 10 hours of video playback and up to 40 hours of audio playback.

iPhone 5c comes with iOS 7, the most significant iOS update since the original iPhone, featuring a stunning new user interface, completely redesigned with an elegant color palette, distinct, functional layers and subtle motion that make it feel more alive. iOS 7 is designed to complement the gorgeous exteriors of iPhone 5c, with matching wallpapers and translucency that carry the color through the entire experience. iOS 7 has hundreds of great new features, including Control Center, Notification Center, improved Multitasking, AirDrop, enhanced Photos, Safari, Siri and introduces iTunes Radio, a free Internet radio service based on the music you listen to on iTunes.

iPhone 5c comes in blue, green, pink, yellow and white and will be available in the US on September 20th for a suggested retail price of $99 for the 16GB model and $199 for the 32GB model.

I actually like the phone, but those are some ugly cases.

I was hoping for an unlocked price of around $350. I think $549 is way too high for a plastic phone with a 4" screen and limited storage space. Even if it's from my favorite fruit company.

You are right this is way overpriced!

I kinda like the color combinations with the cases. I'm a little disappointed they don't have a red phone though. That would look tight with the black outer case. That being said, it still wouldn't be enough to have me coming back from a Galaxy phone with a larger screen. It's really hard staring at a 4-inch screen once you get use to a larger one. I find them easier to type on too. Even with one hand! lol

I'm not sure I've ever seen that model up close, but this one looks like a dead ringer for matching Pepto Bismol on my screen.

You will have to see them in person. I swear with the last round of iPod Touchs the colors aren't even close to their names. Pink looks red, yellow looks green.

That being said plastics should be the color indicated.
Anodized is a different story. Lighting makes a big difference.

They shouldn't have any problems with the gold iPhone 5s. That's any easy color to make it through the process.

I like the yellow one best. I would rather go with the 5s for another $100 though. And that would be in the space grey.

I like that one as well. My wife has the iPhone 5 in black and it got pretty darn scratched up. This new color, which is sort of the new black, shouldn't be as prone to that with the lighter edges.

I can't believe that some people are complaining about the name of the color. Too me the color looks exactly the same as BMW's space gray. I don't know if BMW made up the name for the color, but come on people.
