Apple has revealed it’s latest iPhone offerings in the form of the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C.
The 5C comes in five different colours including pink, blue, green, yellow and white and starts at just $739.
The 5S is a little more high-end and will be available in grey, silver and gold with a price point starting from $869.
Both phones will be available for purchase from Apple as well as through the major providers Telstra, Optus and Vodafone as of September 20th. Australian telcos have yet to release their plans for the new iPhones.
While Apple have released two new versions of the iPhone, with the cheaper coming in at $739 it’s still clear that they bet on people paying far more for iPhones than for other handsets.
This low-cost model has been developed by Apple in a bid to compete with other cheap smartphones on the market, many of which use Google’s Android operating system.
Analysts will be keeping a close eye on the iPhone 5C to see just how it’s able to compete in China and other developing markets.
While it will start at $739 for 16 gigabytes of memory, the 32GB model will set you back $869. The 5C also has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, an A6 chip and 4-inch Retina display.
The iPhone 5S has a number of special features including a 64-bit A7 chip that will make this iPhone work twice as fast.
The 5S also comes with fingerprint-sensor technology on the phone’s home button.
The 5S has an 8-megapixel camera which also comes with a slow-motion video and burst photographic modes as well. Like the 5C the 5S has a 4-inch Retina display.
The 5S will start at $869 for a model with 16GB of memory and for a model with 32GB it will cost you approximately $999. There is also a 64GB model which be priced around the $1129 mark.
Apple have also released it’s new software iOS 7, which will be available as of the 18th of September.
