    That ups the color permutations.

    You can combine two colors to get the mix you want. Red and yellow looks great. Lots of Marvel-quality combos here.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:26:08 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:26:10 PM
    So now you have to pick the color and the accent case color. Moto X-like.

    "Inside it's built with a new construction method that uses a steel reinforced structure that provides incredible rigidity." It forms the antenna, too.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:26:30 PM
    Lichtenstein and Warhol would approve.

    A6, same as iPhone 5. But slightly larger battery?
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:27:03 PM
    4-inch display, like the iPhone 5. A6 chip inside, "blazing-fast performance." The battery is larger than in the iPhone 5, which is nice. 8 megapixel iSight camera, with the five-element lens and IR filter as seen on the 5.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:27:03 PM
    8MP camera, hybrid IR filter

    Improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:27:31 PM
    New FaceTime HD camera with larger pixels for better low-light performance, and better audio, too.

  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:27:54 PM
    Supports "more LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world." 100Mbps download. Dual-band WiFi, too. Could this be a single phone for Apple worldwide?
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:27:55 PM
    100 Mbps download, 802.11 a/b/g/n

    Those stat slides were very fast.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:28:19 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:28:19 PM
    16GB priced at $99, 32GB for $199. On-contract, of course.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:28:33 PM
    The cases, of which there are six, are $29.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:28:35 PM
    Tim, you picked it. $99 for 16GB, 32GB $199. And a two-year contract. $29 color cases.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:28:48 PM
    "We worked really hard to make sure these products are designed in a very environmentally friendly way."
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:28:51 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:29:08 PM
    Phil says they're not only toxin-free, but "Android-free" as well. Got a couple chuckles from that.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:29:12 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:29:15 PM
    Applause when he says "Android-free." hmmph
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:29:21 PM
    Okay, time for Video. It's Jony Ive doing his thing.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:29:32 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:29:35 PM
    "We believe the iPhone is an experience, and an experience is defined by hardware and software working together harmoniously."
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:29:43 PM
    He's talking about "dynamically blurring the boundaries" between the two.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:29:56 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:30:11 PM
    "iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapolgetically plastic. Multiple parts have been reduced to a single polycarbonate component whose service is continuous and seamless.
    "
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:30:20 PM
    So, instant thought: the cases make the design a lot cooler. Could add additional Moto X design stylings. I think a lot of people are going to want this one (the 5C).
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:30:21 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:30:36 PM
    We're seeing lots of slow plans with ridiculous macro shots, as per usual. Good luck ever getting your iPhone this clean.
