Apple announces the iPhone 5c: 4-inch Retina display, plastic design, available in five colors starting at $99 on-contract

And then there were two. Apple has for the first time announced a second new iPhone model: the iPhone 5c. As rumored, the device has a colorful new polycarbonate design, which Apple says is made from a single part save the front panel — the whole of which is a multitouch surface — and reinforced with a steel structure thats said to be made using a new construction method. Its “beautifully, unapologetically plastic,” according to Apples Jony Ive.As for specs, youll get the same 4-inch Retina display as the iPhone 5 full sRGB, plus an A6 processor, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi connectivity, a higher capacity batter and an 8-megapixel, backside-illuminated camera with a 5-element lens. A new front-facing camera also promises better performance in low light.Available in blue, white, pink, yellow and green, the 5C will set you back $99 on a two-year contract for the 16GB version, or $199 for the 32GB off-contract options run $549 and $649. Those looking for a bit of added protection can also opt for one of the new cases that Apple has designed to match the phone — theyll set you back $29 apiece. Pre-orders will open up on September 13th, with the phone set to ship alongside the iPhone 5s a week later on September 20th.
