Apple live blog: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s and iOS 7

Apple has unveiled the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s. Read on for our live blog.

  • Now onto iPhone 5s *in best Ferrero Rocher ad voice: "Apple you are spoiling us!"* 
  • Not content with that, Apple is also releasing a range of iPhone 5c cases with cut-outs so you can still see the original colour. They'll be $29 a piece. 
  • It'll be available in a range of hues: Blue, white, pink, yellow and green and the shell will be hard-coated polycarbonate with a steel reinforced interior which will double up as an antenna. 
  • Specs now. Four inch Retina display; Apple-designed A6 chip; high-capacity battery (phew); 8MP iSight camera; new FaceTime HD camera on the front; More LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world with up to 100 Mbps download; supports 802.11 a/b/g/n; 2.4GHz and 5GHz and Bluetooth 4.0.
  • But all good stars must retire from the limelight. Take the stage iPhone 5c. And, instead of lowering the price of the iPhone 5 (as Apple has done before for the previous generation when launching a new one), it's just making the iPhone 5c uber cheap. $99 for the 16GB version and $199 for 32GB on a two-year contract. 
  • Now it's onto the iPhone. iPhone 5 did really well in its first year. Better than any iPhone before it. 
  • These apps feed customers' appetite for productivity (iWork) and creativity (iMovie and iPhoto) says Cook who is now standing in front of a giant screen that says 'Free.' If only he started talking about the new iPhone now - maybe they'd be a chance we could claim he was suggesting it was free. A tech title can dream can't it?!
