The new iPhone 5C is finally official. After months of rumor and speculation, Apple has opted to introduce its latest smartphone today at a special event in Cupertino. CEO Tim Cook detailed the latest updates in iOS7, noting that Apple has been “hard at work completing iOS7″ in time for its September 18th release, before inviting Phll Shiller on stage to unveiled the new iPhone 5C. It looks identical to the leaks and case parts we’ve seen recently, with a plastic back and a variety of colors.
The back and sides of the device are made from a single part, with options for green, white, blue, red, and yellow colors. Shiller claims you “won’t see seams, or part lines, or joins,” and the device is made from hard-coated polycarbonate. Apple has also created custom cases with a soft-feel silicon rubber that enclose the handset. The cases, priced at $29 each, also provide an additional color option on top of the regular colors of the iPhone 5C.
