iPhone 5C Render Running iOS 7 Gets Virtual Hands-On Treatment [VIDEO]

We are now less than 72 hours away from the iPhone 5S and 5C announcement, and while it’s understandable that all the fuss will no doubt be about the new flagship handset coming out of Cupertino, it’s arguable that the most interesting device that we expect to be announced on Monday is the new budget iPhone.

Set to be dubbed the iPhone 5C, presumably due to its choice of colors, the new handset is basically an iPhone 5 in new clothes if the rumors are to be believed. The iPhone 5 is still one of the best smartphones on the market as far as we’re concerned, so the idea of it being a budget device in a couple of days is blowing our minds a tad.

Throw in some lovely looking colors and what is quite possibly going to be a more palm-friendly chassis than the iPhone 5/5S body has turned out to be, and we find ourselves more interested in seeing what Apple has in store for those not wanting to splash the cash on a premium handset this September.

So, with all that in mind, we sat down all gooey-eyed to watch a new rendered video which depicts what the iPhone 5C may or may not look like when it’s running iOS 7 as well as a collection of popular apps. We’ve got to say that it looks stunning in the video, and if the colors look as good in real life as they do on YouTube, then we can’t wait to cast our eyes upon them.

Created by Maxim Khoroshev, the video is well worth a watch, especially if the iPhone 5C holds any kind of intrigue for you, just as it does us. That’s not to say we won’t be in line for an iPhone 5S in a couple of weeks – it just means we’ll look at the 5C while we’re waiting to pay!

As mentioned before, the new Apple smartphones will be announced at Apple’s September 10th iPhone event.
