On September 10th Apple launched the long-anticipated new versions of the iPhone 5, in the forms of the 5S and the 5C. The 5C in particular had long been lauded as the so-called ‘budget iPhone’, with its developers claiming it boasted the features of its predecessor – without the hefty price tag. On the other hand, the 5S confirmed the rumors running up to its launch in its new features, including a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, ultra-fast wireless and an upgraded camera amongst everything else. The 5S, like the 5, comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB forms, whilst the 5C offers two versions in 16GB and 32GB.
At a glance it is the design of both phones that makes them stand out from previous iPhones. The iPhone 5S has the same build as the iPhone 5 but comes in gray, gold or silver. On the other hand the iPhone 5C takes on a distinctly new look with its plastic chassis, available in a rainbow of colors that go as far as matching their respective phone wallpapers. iOS 7 also features on both phones, ultimately adding to Apple’s completely new visual identity.
Both phones are scheduled to be released on September 20th, with the iPhone 5 set to be retired after a very successful year out.
