Apple today announced the iPhone 5C. The 5C is a replacement for the outgoing iPhone 5, which will no longer be sold. The hallmark feature of the iPhone 5C is that it trades a metallic body for a hard-coated polycarbonate shell. The shell has a metal frame on the inside, which also acts as the phone's antenna. The 5C will be sold in five different colors, including white, blue, green, yellow, and pink. Many of iOS 7's colors were chosen to match the hues of the iPhone 5C. The back and sides of the 5C are formed from a single piece of material and Apple says there will be no visible seams or joins. It is not removable, though, and as with all iPhones the battery is inaccessible. The 5C features a 4-inch Retina Display with an Apple A6 processor, 8-megapixel main camera, and a 1.2-megapixel user-facing camera with improved back-side illumination and improved audio to boost FaceTime performance. The 5C will support LTE bands worldwide, Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, and also has dual-carrier Wi-Fi. The 16GB version costs $99 and the 32GB version costs $199 with a new two-year contract. It will be available from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. Preorders begin September 13 and it will be in stores September 20.
