Apple announces the colorful iPhone 5c


Two new Applesauces

At today's press conference in Cupertino, Apple announced their new phone, the iPhone 5c. This replacement of the iPhone 5 adds color -- green, yellow, blue, white and red. No seams, part lines or joints, Apple brags.

It's made of polycarbonite -- a change for Apple. It's steel reinforced on the inside, though.

It is powered by the A6 chip and has a 4-inch display, just like the current iPhone 5. The battery is larger than the iPhone 5. The camera is an 8MP affair, with a hybrid IR filter. 

A new line of custom cases will be released alongside these new phones, priced at $29.

iOS 7 was covered heavily in this press conference. It will be available starting September 18, and will come on these new phones.  

The 16GB model will be priced at $99 (with contract), and the 32GB is $199. It will be available in stores September 20, with preorders starting on September 13.
