There's nothing worse than having your expensive iPhone or iPad break except possibly having it break because you've done something to it. Whether you've dropped your iPad and broken the screen or managed to take your iPhone for a swim, accidental damage is often something that follows people around, and can prove to be an expensive mistake.
Apple has finally announced the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, two smartphones that have immediately confirmed the demise of the iPhone 5. In an event that also saw the iWork and iLife suite for iOS go free of charge on newer devices, there was plenty going on, and now, you can watch the keynote online in its entirety.
Today may well go down as the day that we saw Apple announce two new iPhones during the same press event, but it's also the day that some of its often forgotten products also received a minor facelift. And by minor, we mean they got a new color.
When cameras first hit mobile phones, it was seen as a luxury, but in the smartphone-besieged Digital Age, the snapper is one of the most talked-about features of any new device. The iPhone 5s, in case you missed it, has just been announced by Apple, and as you would expect, the company spent a great deal of time talking about how much better its camera is than any other iPhone. But hey, specs aside, the only real way to gauge a camera's worth is to take photos with it and decide from there, right? Handily, some such images have been shared by Apple, so if you wish to see whether the iPhone 5s's camera really does hold its own, check out the shots after the break.
Apple’s iPhone event managed to deliver pretty much everything we expected, with the addition of a few minor curveballs. The much-speculated iPhone 5c and 5s were introduced to a small but excited crowd, but rather than announcing a price decrease of the current generation iPhone 5, Apple has instead decided to kill off the phone altogether.
Well that's it folks, today's Cupertino based iPhone event has been and gone. It may not have contained the glitz and glamour that comes attached with Apple’s WWDC event, but it lived up to everything we expected while managing to deliver a little bit more in the process. The announcement of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s undoubtedly dominated the event, and Apple has now updated their official customer facing Website with a number of walkthrough videos to show off their latest tech.
The next generation iPhone 5s with a 64-bit A7 chip, and its sibling, the iPhone 5c, were finally announced today, living up to all the previous hype and rumor that surrounded both these marvelous devices. Along with a new device, what’s always anticipated is a new accessory, and while the one that we’re showing off is nothing new, it’s a revival of something that was already there but was taken down for some reason. You can now get Apple’s very own Lightning docks for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, being sold through the Apple Store.
After much deliberation, rumor and speculation, the iPhone 5c, a low-costing, polycarbonate-clad smartphone, is finally upon us. The even better news for those looking to purchase the handset is that it will become available to pre-order from September 13th. The device will, along with the new flagship iPhone 5s, be available in stores from September 20th, in line with conjecture prior to today's proceedings.
