The new iPhone 5C has the same processor as the iPhone 5 (A6 processor) and it comes with 8MP rear camera, front-facing FaceTime camera, support for multiple LTE network bands, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. It comes with the new operating system, iOS 7. iPhone 5C can be purchased in red, white, yellow, blue and green.
Two new iPhone versions have been presented by Apple on September 10th - a colourful budget version, named iPhone 5C, and an advanced sequel to iPhone 5, named iPhone 5S. iPhone 5C will be released in several bright colours, a step away from Apple's habit of selling their phones in either white or black. It will be available in green, blue, yellow, pink and white; while iPhone 5S comes in black, silver and gold.
iPhone 5C: a plastic and colourful iPhone
Apple unveiled the new budget iPhone 5C, available in five different colours with matching wallpapers. iPhone 5C offers everything that iPhone 5 offered, and even more, wrapped in a completely new design with lots of great features.
What is most striking about iPhone 5C is its plastic housing, which is less expensive to manufacture. By making use of cheaper and existing components of the current iPhone, Apple managed to reduce the price. Apple can thus compete better with mid-range Android devices, which are often given away for free with subscription. The casing of the iPhone 5C is made of polycarbonate, while the interior is reinforced with metal to make it more durable. There are five versions of the iPhone 5C: green, white, blue, pink and yellow. A nice touch is that the set of default backgrounds (available in iOS 7) matches the colour of your iPhone. The appearance is more or less identical to its predecessor. The iPhone 5 had a weight of 112 grams and dimensions of 123.8 mm x 58.6 mm x 7.6 mm, while the iPhone 5C weighs 132 grams and has dimensions of 124.4 mm x 59.2 mm x 8.97 mm, which makes it slightly thicker and heavier, but with no major differences.
iPhone 5C Specifications
Much of the iPhone 5C specifications, such as the size and screen resolution, correspond to those of the iPhone 5 (the only difference being slightly larger battery). Just like the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5C comes with a 4-inch Retina display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels and a Lightning connector. The iPhone 5C is available with 16GB and 32GB internal memory. Other important features include A6 processor, 8 megapixels iSight camera and improved FaceTime front HD camera that performs better in low light conditions. What is new is that the iPhone 5C supports more LTE bands than any other smartphone on the market.
iPhone 5C Cases and other Accessories
Apple will offer cases in different colours for iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. Cases for iPhone 5C will sell for $29, while the ones for the iPhone 5S will cost $39. Popular third party manufacturers also offer their popular case models for iPhone 5C, as it is slightly larger than iPhone 5, so cases made for iPhone 5 will not fit 5C.
Apple offers colourful cases for iPhone 5C
Apple also introduced official iPhone 5C cases, made of silicone with a microfiber lining. Cases are available in white, pink, yellow, blue, green and black. What is particularly interesting about these cases are cut-outs in the back which show the true colour of the iPhone. You can choose a colour that matches your 5C or you can combine colours to mix it up. On the Apple website you can create a combination of the case and the phone, so you can already see how the two colours match. iOS 7 comes with special backgrounds that will match the colour of your iPhone 5C.
