Apple unveiled two new iPhones today! Apple CEO Tim Cook said business is so large they will be replacing the iPhone 5 with a traditional upgrade (5S) as well as a simpler, cheaper version (5c).
The iPhone 5C is a new design that’s more fun & more colorful. Apple design guru Jonny Ive described the 5C as “beautifully, unapologetically plastic.” The phone will sell for as little as $99, for a 16GB version, and $199 for one with 32GB of storage (each with a two-year mobile contract). Apple will also be making its own cases for the 5C, selling in a variety of colors for $29. – CNN
The 5S features performance upgrades which will include first 64-bit chip in a smartphone, a motion co-processor, that will let the phone be used as a fitness tracker, will allow video in slow motion and Touch ID, a fingerprint scanner for security. The iPhone 5S will sell for $199 for a 16GB version, $299 for a 32GB model and $399 for the top-end 64GB phone. – CNN
