Items tagged with iPhone 5C

It doesn’t happen very often, but Apple on occasion leaks upcoming products either via its website or via the App Store. The last such incident happened in October when the user guide for the iPad mini 3 and iPad Air 2 leaked a day before the official keynote. Today, another Apple product has leaked, but this one likely won’t be officially revealed for another few months. At first glance, the image below could be easily mistaken for the nearly two-year-old iPhone 5C. However, closer inspection shows that this pink iPhone has Touch ID in place of standard home button. The image didn’t stay up long... Read more...
In addition to the revised 15-inch MacBook Pro and 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina Display news from this morning, Apple has introduced a new accessory for all Lightning-equipped iPhones: the iPhone Lightning Dock. The addition of the dock is surprising for two reasons. First, why did it take so long for Apple to release a Lightning Dock compatible with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus? Secondly, is Apple out of its Vulcan mind by charging $39 for a hunk of plastic? To add insult to injury, Apple doesn’t even include an extra Lightning USB cable in the box; you’re on your own on that front. For... Read more...
It appears the time is nigh for the iPhone 5C, says MacRumors which cited a report from Taiwan’s Industrial and Commercial Times. According to the report, Apple will discontinue production of the smartphone in 2015.Last year, Apple unveiled the iPhone 5C as a cheaper alternative to the iPhone 5S with the 16GB model retailing for $99 and the 32GB version for $199. Lacking features such as the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and the A7 processor from the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 5C is available in five different colors. However, sales of the iPhone 5C reportedly failed to meet expectations when it launched... Read more...
If you're looking to score the best deal on an iPhone, typically the best time to pounce is right before Apple launches a new model. When that time of year comes around, retailers inevitably slash prices on current generation models to make room for the new handsets, as Walmart is about to do with its stockpile of iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S handsets. The folks at CNET have it on good authority (a Walmart spokesperson) that Walmart's planning to reduce the price of the iPhone 5C from $29 to just $0.97 effective Thursday at 9 AM local time. Walmart is also planning to cut the price of its remaining... Read more...
Retailers have been discounting iPhone 5 smartphones heavily ahead of the anticipated launch of Apple’s next generation of iPhones in early September. Now, AT&T is running a promotion that knocks $200 off the price of an iPad or iPad mini when you buy an iPhone 5c or 5s on an AT&T Next plan. This is not an online promotion, so you’ll need to visit an AT&T brick-and-mortar to take advantage of it. The deal applies to iPads and iPad minis, but not the iPad minis that have retina displays. You’ll need to buy the iPad with a two-year AT&T wireless agreement (in addition... Read more...
Apple is a company that's constantly in motion -- if it's not launching new products, then it's refreshing existing ones and tweaking its lineup. Such is the case at present starting with Apple's decision to snuff out the iPad 2 and replace it with the resurrected iPad 4, which the Cupertino company had discontinued last year. This is a pretty savvy move on Apple's part, as the iPad 4 represents a significant upgrade in hardware and features over the iPad 2, thereby offering consumers a much more compelling product at the $399 price point. That's for the 16GB model with Wi-Fi, though the fourth... Read more...
Apple is doing pretty well for itself in the smartphone market, but there's always room to do better, especially in the lower-end segment where inexpensive Android devices are virtually unchallenged. To offer up some increased competition, Apple is rumored to be releasing an iPhone 5C model with 8GB of internal storage tomorrow. At present, Apple offers its colorful iPhone 5C family in 16GB and 32GB SKUs. If purchased from Apple's online store, they run $99 and $199, respectively, with a two-year service agreement with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. Alternately, you can purchase SIM-free variants...

Time and again, we bear witness to the fact that if you wait long enough, just about any smartphone will eventually reach the low, low price of free. Such phenomena even applies to iPhone models, the latest example being the iPhone 5C, which Best Buy is offering at no cost to customers who sign up for a two-year service contract with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. The iPhone 5C was never terribly expensive to begin with. Pricing started at $99 (on-contract) when it debuted three months ago, and while that's still the going rate if you purchase it online at Apple, Best Buy's been reducing the price... Read more...
Today is launch day for Apple's new flagship iPhone 5S and its less expensive sibling, the iPhone 5C. Since Apple opted not to allow pre-orders for the higher-end version, the only way to get one today is to march into a brick-and-mortar store and hope they have one in stock (word on the web is that Radio Shack might be your best bet). Alternately, you can order one of the new phones online direct from Apple, though shipping times are all over the map. Let's start with the Space Gray version of the iPhone 5S, which is supposed to be the most popular. As it currently stands, the 16GB model ships... Read more...
Night owls got first dibs on Apple's newly launched iPhone 5C smartphone, which became available to pre-order at 12:01 AM PT  (3:01 AM ET). As of the time of this writing, there's no shortage of iPhone 5C devices to go around; Apple's still quoting a delivery a date of September 20, 2013, the same day you'll be able to waltz into an Apple Retail Store and pick one up. The iPhone 5C costs $99 for the 16GB and $199 for the 32GB model. As with every iPhone to date, there isn't any expandable storage built into the device, so choose wisely. You'll also have to pick out a color, your options being... Read more...
Whether it's intentional or not, Apple's pretty bad about keeping secrets related to new product releases, so much of what you read here will essentially boil down to recaps and confirmation of past rumors and speculation. That said, the Cupertino outfit today announced two new iPhone models, the high-end iPhone 5S made of anodized aluminum, and the more affordable iPhone 5C built from polycarbonate plastic. iPhone 5S Starting with the former, the iPhone 5S retains the same overall look and feel with its anodized aluminum body, diamond cut chamfered edges, and 4-inch Retina display. Rumors of a... Read more...
We've heard numerous rumors of Apple planning to launch a low cost version of its iPhone, perhaps one that's constructed of polycarbonate plastic rather than aluminum and glass. While some have dismissed such chatter as nonsense (including Apple), at least one analyst believes the Cupertino company is still on track to release a more affordable iPhone device. Kulbinder Garcha, an analyst with Credit Suisse, believes Apple has come to the decision to abandon its premium-only policy so that it can capture more market share among smartphone owners and boost profits as well, The Street reports. Garcha... Read more...
