Is Apple disabling iPhone 6 handsets repaired by independent shops?
It’s a conspiracy. Or is it?
The blue iPhone 5C might just be the best-looking of the lot. Add a feature set that takes in 4G carrier support, a lavish four-inch Retina Display and the latest iOS 7 version of Apple's smartphone operating system, and the iPhone 5c is much, much more than a pretty face.
The iPhone 5s takes the best of the iPhone 5 and makes it that much better. Take, for, example the A6 processor that sits inside its lightweight, polycarbonate, steel reinforced shell.
Because it's twice as powerful as the iPhone 5's A5 processor, the iPhone 5C zips through menus and screens at amazing speed. Better still, it means you'll be able to do more of whatever it is you like doing.
Faster processors usually mean faster battery drain. Not this time, though, because the A6 has been optimised to be energy-efficient. Add to that the fact that the iPhone 5C is powered by the longest-life battery so far on an iPhone and you can expect up to ten hours of browsing, streaming or talk-time on a single full charge.
4G support makes the iPhone 5C even faster still. Offering connection speeds that dwarf 3G, this means you can surf the web and download content faster than ever. Streaming video and music is smoother too and is free from annoying buffering.
Camera capabilities are the iPhone's strong suit. The iPhone 5C is no exception. The onboard eight-megapixel iSight camera with a five-element lens captures stunning images each and every time. And if you need a special vintage filter or want to shoot jaw-dropping panoramic images, it's got you covered for that too.
Video impresses as well, of course. The 1080 HD footage the iPhone 5C shoots, coupled with the poweful 3X zoom, makes your previously homely mini movies look more like something you'd see at a multiplex. And to ensure everything stays on an even keel, Apple has fitted the handset with video image stabilistion technology.
At the heart of the iPhone 5C is the iOS 7 operating system. Completely rethought from earlier editions, this ushers in slicker multi-tasking and the handy Control Centre feature that lets you get to key settings with just a single swipe. New versions of apps and completely fresh ones are also included, among them the revamped Safari for better browsing and AirDrop for simpler sharing.
Rounding off the iPhone 5c's feature set is 16GB of storage, the smartphone world's most extensive range of apps at the App Store and a FaceTime HD camera for better video calls.
