There has been much speculation about the iPhone 5C. Apple’s media event of yesterday has put it to rest. What is evident is that the iPhone 5C is not cheap and it is colourful. It is actually not that surprising a move by Apple if one can remember all the colour options available for the plastic body iMac all those years ago?
The iPhone 5C is pretty much an iPhone 5 with fancy clothes on. It is actually a replacement for the iPhone 5. Needless to say, it will run the latest iOS 7 and is made out of polycarbonate. The iPhone 5C will continue with an 8 MP camera, same as the iPhone 5, but the camera has been improved. Expect the iPhone 5C to be a bit heavier and bulkier that the original iPhone 5. While the iPhone 5C runs iOS 7 out of the box, the iPhone 5 will get the update and with it many of the cool new camera effects.
All in all, the iPhone 5C is great as a new phone, but it does not really make sense spending money to upgrade from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 5C.… Read the rest
While the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will probably be revealed at the media event Apple will be hosting on the 10th of September along with the iOS 7 – the actual release date for the two new iDevices will be ten days later on the 20th of September.
According to rumour, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, its cheaper cousin, will first be released in the US and Japan. The iPhone 6 isn’t expected till November this year though some sources claim that the iPhone 6 won’t be on shelves till early next year. While the iPhone 5S is supposed to bring a whole lot of new gimmicks to the iPhone brand, the iPhone 5C is supposedly targeted at the lower income groups and will be made out of plastic and cheaper than its sibling. The iPhone 5S is also rumoured to be available in a pale gold colour while the iPhone 5C will have a large palette to choose from.
All of these rumours will be laid to rest in two weeks time at the media event being held by Apple. … Read the rest
The Cupertino tech giant Apple has recently hinted that they will be launching a cheaper iPhone. According to CEO Tim Cook, while the iPhone 5 has been the largest seller, the iPhone 4 is still very popular and Apple want to continue attracting the demographic of people that are looking for cheaper iPhones. This seems like a pretty straight forward hint that the iPhone 5C is going to be a reality. While some believe that the cheaper iPhone will sport a 4 inch screen, have a dual core processor and be housed in a plastic casing – some reports state that the phone will in fact be a cheaper plastic version of the iPhone 5. Only time will tell since Apple as usual is silent.
Meanwhile, a new iPhone 6 concept the iPhone 6 Infinity has been doing the rounds on the web, it has an infinity screen. Released on the website Dribble, a few artists have come up with concepts. They are all pretty good and the benefits are pretty obvious. With a screen that actually continues over the edge and covers the entire side of the phone Apple can increase the screen size without having to change the dimensions. This extra space could be used in a myriad of ways, from having social media updates or holding tabs for favourite application. The options are endless.
While we wait for the new iPhone or possibly iPhones which many reports say will release sometime in September – most expect a reveal by the 10th with the new iOS 7 followed by a 20th full release, let us hope Apple looks at the infinity screen concept for the iPhone 6!… Read the rest
