    How shiny will the polycarbonate stay? How scuff-free? "single piece" with steel-reinforced frame.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:31:00 PM
    We're seeing the manufacturing process now, of the polycarbonate getting moulded. There's a steel frame that's actually glued in.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:31:05 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:31:19 PM
    Holes are machined, not molded, and the whole thing is actually provided with a lacquered glosscoat.

    I could see this phone being more bounce-on-the-pavement friendly.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:31:31 PM
    "A solid, dense feel that you would not expect from a plastic product."
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:31:48 PM
    Half an hour in, pretty fast and furious pace.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:31:51 PM
    Now he's talking about the "soft, matte, microfiber-lined silicon" cases, a "very intentional contrast" to the gloss iPhone.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:31:52 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:32:22 PM
    Craig is talking now, talking up the specs. He says the battery life is "impressive" but we haven't heard any figures quoted yet.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:32:23 PM
    I want to know how impressive the battery life is.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:32:31 PM

    That green is as bright as the sneakers on someone I saw this morning at the omelette bar.

    "iOS 7 is designed to complement the iPhone 5C perfectly." The wallpaper and translucency brings it all together to provide "the right experience."
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:33:15 PM
    So, over/under on new semi-seasonal color updates and special editions?
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:33:17 PM
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:33:37 PM
    Jony again. "I think it's quite remarkable when something feels familiar yet is new. That's the iPhone 5C. It's the vivid realization of hardware and software in one device."
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:33:41 PM
    Video over, Phil is back up.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:33:43 PM
    Least favorite for me: the tomato-soup red.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:33:54 PM
    Okay. Now...the iPhone 5S.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:33:59 PM
    Again, the real name.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:34:03 PM
    Now the next phone, iPhone 5S! "The most forward-thinking phone we've ever created."
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:34:08 PM
    "In fact, the most forward-thinking phone anyone has ever made."
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:34:13 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:34:13 PM
    "most forward-thinking phone anyone's ever made." whoa. bold words.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:34:29 PM
    Video: melting metal.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:34:29 PM
    "It's built in a design that is absolutely the most beautiful, and stunning design in the entire phone industry."
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:34:36 PM
    Champagne! Gold.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:34:38 PM
    We're seeing some liquid metal, definite gold/champagne color!
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:34:42 PM
    Gold and white.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:34:46 PM
    And yes, there's a new home button!
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:34:51 PM
    And a crazy capacative home button.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:34:55 PM
    Big applause for the new iPhone 5S.
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:35:01 PM
    Silver, Gold, Black.
  • Josh Lowensohn 9/10/2013 5:35:09 PM
  • Carrie Mihalcik 9/10/2013 5:35:12 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/10/2013 5:35:13 PM
    Flash looks twice the size.
  • Tim Stevens 9/10/2013 5:35:19 PM
    "This is iPhone 5S. It's made of a high-grade aluminum, with diamond-cut, chamfered edges." Yes, just like the iPhone 5.
