Apple Officially Unveils the Budget iPhone 5c

Apple today introduced iPhone 5c, featuring an all-new design and available in five gorgeous colors—blue, green, pink, yellow and white. iPhone 5c features a 4-inch Retina display, performance of the A6 chip, and the 8 megapixel iSight camera. iPhone 5c comes with more LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world, a new FaceTime HD camera, and iOS 7.

iPhone 5c’s all-new design is 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 glossy surface. To complement the all-new iPhone 5c design, Apple created soft, matte, microfiber-lined cases to contrast 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.

iPhone 5c comes with iOS 7, 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 has hundreds of 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 will be available in the U.S. on September 20 for a suggested retail price of $99 USD for the 16GB model and $199 USD for the 32GB model. iPhone 5c will be available from the www.apple.com, Apple’s retail stores, and through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and select Apple Authorized Resellers. You can pre-order iPhone 5c beginning Friday, September 13.
