A Closer Look at iPhone 5c
iPhone 5c will be hitting the shelves in less than a week. Here is what we can expect.
- Multiple Colors
As expected, the 5c is available in an array of colors: blue, green, yellow, pink and white. You can also set your wallpaper color to match the outside of the phone.
- Special Case
Apple also released a new 5c specific case that comes in a variety of colors. The case design has hole cutouts to show the color of the phone through the case, so you can create many different color combinations. The cases will cost $30.
- New Material
The 5c is made out of a seamless plastic exterior. However, the interior is reinforced by metal.
- Interior Specs
The 5c will use the iPhone 5’s A6 processor, an 8MP camera and 4-inch retina display.
- No Fingerprint Sensor
This new technology of the 5s was not carried over to the 5c.
The 5c will launch with iOS7. The new OS comes with updated features like better multitasking abilities, a new Command Center and iTunes Radio is included for free music streaming.
