Media Event Recap: iPhone 5C
As rumors suggested, Apple did announce a cheaper model iPhone called the iPhone 5C at the media event today. Also in line with the rumors is the color. It comes in white, pink, yellow, blue, and green. They all come with a black screen. Buyers can pick from 16 or 32GB at a price of $99 and $199, respectively. It comes in at 4.9 inches tall, 2.33 inches wide, .35 inches thick, and 4.65 ounces. This makes the device a little taller, wider, thicker, and heavier than the iPhone 5S and 5.
It runs an A6 processor and lacks the M7 motion coprocessor on the iPhone 5S. Even thought it has a plastic back it still has all of the same great features: LTE, Siri, 8-megapixel camera, two cameras, 4-inch display, and a 10-hour battery life for Internet use on LTE. However, it does not have the new Touch ID home button.
