Apple has put an end to months of rumours and leaks with the unveiling of its affordable mobile phone – the iPhone 5C.
The new multi-coloured device is available in green, blue, pink and yellow versions as well as keeping the company's standard black and white options and marks the first time the Cupertino firm has offered coloured handsets.
It's made of polycarbonate plastic with hard lacquer coating which should make it fairly scratch-resistant and strong, though Apple are sure to offer a number of cases if you want to keep your new device extra safe.
The iPhone 5C is pretty much the iPhone 5 as it brings the same A6 processor, four-inch Retina display and eight-megapixel camera. However, a couple of improvements have been made as the affordable handset offers users a better battery and Facetime HD camera as well as Facetime Audio which will come to users in iOS 7.
The iPhone 5C will be available to pre-order on September 13th with it shipping out to Australian users on September 20th. It will cost you AU$739 for the 16GB version and AU$869 for the 32GB model.
