With an all-new design, this is iPhone as you’ve never seen it — or held it. iPhone 5c is beautifully, unapologetically plastic, the better to bring its five decidedly uncommon colours to life. Beneath the smooth surface of the seamless outer shell, a steel-reinforced frame provides structural integrity. So iPhone 5c feels reassuringly solid in your hand.
Oh, how quickly things change. Add one of the six Apple‑designed cases to your iPhone 5c and it instantly goes from colourfully cool to impossible to ignore. The case design allows the colour underneath to show through, creating 30 fun possibilities. So the iPhone 5c Case does more than just protect your phone — it helps it stand out. And it helps you make it yours.

The 8MP iSight camera delivers startlingly sharp photo quality thanks to features like a sophisticated five‑element lens. And panorama, which lets you get stunning high‑resolution shots of things like packed football stadiums. The Scottish Highlands. Or the marching band your friend hired to play “Happy Birthday” outside your window.
New Camera app.
iPhone 5c also comes with a new Camera app that raises your photography game. Now you can shoot images in a square format. And choose from eight live filters that can be applied before or after you take your photo. Use the Instant filter to give a group shot at the beach a vintage colour look. Make a sunset even more vivid with the Chrome filter. Or choose Noir to capture a self-portrait in dramatic black and white.
Now when you record video in 1080p HD, the new 3x zoom feature lets you get in tighter on your subject. Video image stabilisation helps smooth out shaky footage from your high‑adrenaline moments. (Running of the Bulls, anyone?) Face detection for up to 10 faces makes sure nobody gets lost in the crowd. And the ability to take still photos while recording video comes in handy when you want to tell that story within a story.
New FaceTime HD camera.
iPhone 5c comes with a new FaceTime HD camera. Larger pixels and an improved backside illumination sensor give it increased sensitivity in low light — great for, say, letting your friends back in the UK experience a California sunset with you. You can also make audio‑only FaceTime calls with clearer sound than even wideband audio. 3
