An improved version of Apple's iPhone 5 that debuted in September 2013 as the middle-tier smartphone in the iPhone lineup, which also includes the newly announced flagship iPhone 5S and the older iPhone 4S.
While the iPhone 5C looks similar to the iPhone5, it uses hard plastic housing rather than the aluminum casing found in previous iPhones, and it also comes in a choice of four bright colors (green, blue, pink, yellow) in addition to a white model.
In terms of features, Apple’s iPhone 5C includes capabilities mostly equivalent to the iPhone 5 while also offering improved camera technology via a front-facing Facetime HD camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera, a larger battery to go along with improved power efficiency, the ability to run on more Long-Term Evolution (LTE) bands than previous phones, and support for the new iOS 7 mobile operating system.
The iPhone 5C retails for $99 with a two-year contract for the 16GB model and $199 with a two-year contract for the 32GB model.
