Apple iPhone 5c Price is $99, Available in 5 Color Options


Apple has officially introduced its much rumored low-cost iPhone, dubbed the iPhone 5C. Starting at $99, Apple says the iPhone 5C features the same technology that’s in the iPhone 5 but will be available in various colors. Users will also see a higher capacity battery, so you should get better endurance.

The iPhone 5c features an 8-megapixel camera and runs on Apple’s A6 chip, just like the iPhone 5. It has the same 4-inch Retina display as the current-generation iPhone 5 and features a hard-coated polycarbonate material that’s steel reinforced. The phone will be available in five different color options including green, white, blue red and yellow.

Apple’s low-cost iPhone certainly isn’t the first smartphone to go the colorful polycarbonate route. The Nokia Lumia line started this trend a while ago. However, Apple claims that the iPhone 5c’s design is as seamless as it is solid.

The 16GB version will cost $99 on a two-year contract, while the 32GB edition will sell for $199 on contract. The iPhone 5c will be up for preorder starting Sept. 13, and will be available for purchase in nine countries including the U.S. on Sept. 20.
