Somewhere Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave as Apple today announced a budget iPhone, the iPhone 5c, a plastic constructed phone available in a 5 garishly bright colours: green, blue, yellow, red, and white.


Apple’s release of the iPhone 5 5C with its plastic case is an effort to provide a lower cost phone to those who wish to experience the latest Apple mobile device but at a lower entry fee.

It appears to be an iPhone 5 in every way. The same A6 processor, 4″ Retina Display, LTE/Wifi, and 8MP f/2.4 camera. The iPhone 5C is completely compatible with iOS 7 but lacks the fingerprint sensor, upgraded camera, and processing power of the also newly announced Apple iPhone 5S.

The newly minted iPhone 5C will be available in the five aforementioned colours for $99 on a two-year contract for the 16GB model and $199 for the 32GB version. The outright purchase price for the 16GB has been listed at a not-so-affordable $599. As with the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C will be available for pre-order on September 13th.
