After weeks of rumors, speculation, leaked photos, and parody videos, Apple's new iPhones have landed. As widely expected, the company announced two devices at its Tuesday morning event in Cupertino, Calif. -- the 5C and the 5S.
Like the iPhone 5, the budget 5C will sport a 4-inch display, as well as an A6 chip with "blazing-fast performance." The device has a plastic wraparound back and will come in five colors -- green, white, blue, red, and yellow, with matchy-matchy screen wallpaper to complement the exterior. The 5C will retail for $99 for 16GB with a two-year contract or $199 for the 32GB version.
The flagship 5S, which Apple humbly calls the "most forward-thinking phone anyone's ever made," sports a 64-bit A7 chip, which makes it the world's first 64-bit mobile phone. It's made of high-grade aluminum and comes in silver, gold, and "a new space gray." Oh, and it has a Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
The iPhone 5S costs the same on contract as the iPhone 5 did at launch: $199 for the 16GB version, $299 for 32GB, and $399 for 64GB. Protective cases will cost $39 each.
