iPhone 5C revealed

New phone launching September 20; 16GB model will be available for $99, while 32GB version launching for $199.

Today during a press event (via CNET), Apple announced the iPhone 5C, which will launch on September 20 alongside the brand-new iPhone 5S. A 16GB model will be available for $99 on contract, while a 32GB version will sell for $199.

The handset will be available multiple colors, including green, white, blue, red, and yellow. Cases will be sold separately for $30.

The iPhone 5C will feature an improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera with larger pixels for better low-light performance and better audio.

The new iPhone will run on iOS 7, which Apple announced today will launch on September 18.

"Downloading iOS 7 is like getting an all-new device," Apple executive Craig Federighi said. "One that's so much more useful and elegant than ever before."

who cares about apple devices while android is here

I got news for you Android fanboys that come on to this site to rag on Apple fanboys:  If you're reading this and posting, you're just as bad as the apple nuts.

Who the hell cares if Apple releases a new model of phone?  If you like it, buy it, if not, don't.  Absolutely, 100%, that simple. 

I get so sick of the arguing.  Apple caters to one type of person.  Android caters to another.  Windows caters to a third.  Again, that simple.

If you're a Toyota person, do you go on websites angry that Honda made a new sedan.  Oh the horror!!!!!!

Morons....

I personally think it looks quite nice .....you don't have to come here to comment if you don't want it , people on this site and elsewhere try to behave as if they are the only sane ones and everyone else is following a fad, face it the numbers mea something ad if people are still buying iphones till date then apple is doing something right...oh and if you don't buy the phone then you do't have the right to bitch about it

my guess is that the 5c is garbage and this is where they start performing like all the other bad touch screens on the market

Expensive gigabytes. And around 8GB is all you really need.

Why would anyone get this when the 4s (which has aged rather well) will be free soon...

iPhone 5c is basically a rebadged iPhone 5, but with a cheaper colorful look to it. And this is not even a cheap phone either. It's not a cheap phone for consumers but for Apple to save money on building these "new" phones with the same hardware but with cheaper materials. Either get an old iPhone 5 or get the new iPhone 5s. Skip the 5c.

The only noticeable difference between an old and new apple product is the year it is sold in.

This is getting ridiculous. These people actually believe that they're getting something new. Apple has most of it's consumers by neck. The phones lost their credibility with the iPhone 4.

Why are people all over the world pretending those are exciting news? I mean seriously it's just a new iPhone, in my country the news organizations didn't give a shit about the new PS4 or XboxOne, there were maybe little articles in the corner of some newspapers but that was it and now, a new iPhone and everybody is going crazy, for what? 

This is a perfect example of how business works, apple had a groundbreaking product that they sold like crazy and now instead of developing something new they just bring a yearly update to it and think that's enough, but why are we all pretending like they just announced the cure for cancer, the news are going crazy.

So what is castrated in this version? CPU? SIRI? Or is it the same as iP5S with smaller HDD and colourful cases?

People play games on their phones. iOS has largest mobile phone gaming market share.

@93ChevyNut being apple hater and reading article on iPhone is just as moronic as being brand war hater and reading brandwar comments.

And if you think you comment can change anything you are even dumber ;)

@puukusa it is the same iP"5"  but with cheaper casing ...so apple making even more profit than selling the IP5 in same price

@Ben Colvin But you couldn't resist looking and commenting. Definition of dumb.

@Emily Mailing Except the people like you who obviously care enough to look at the article and post a comment thereby disproving your initial assertion.

Hardly. I choose to rise above the brand war bullshit and was hoping others would too. And this goes both ways. Allow me to quote you and apply this to anything you've posted on this article:"and if you think your comment can change anything you are even dumber". See how that goes both ways numbnuts?

@damo320 I'm thinking about becoming a full time internet troll. Would you be able to point me in the right direction of places I can send my c.v. as it is something I'd really like to get in to. Thanks in advance and lots of love.

@93ChevyNut Idiot, rising above means leting it be or atleast not calling people names. You lower your self with each next comment posted.

Muahahaha -- dumb dumb thinks he rose above... hihihi.

And it would work both ways if I thought I was changing something, but I don't :P
I'm here just to have some good time with you honey
