Hands-On With The iPhone 5C Logic Board

Sonny Dickson - September 9, 2013

What we have here are leaked images of the iPhone 5C logic board. The 5C is expected to be Apple’s budget model, sporting similar specs of the iPhone 5 but in a plastic shell. The logic board is slightly smaller than the one found inside the iPhone 5, but it does line up with the screw mounting points found inside the iPhone 5c shells that we have featured on our site previously. The slightly smaller logic board might point to a slightly bigger battery.

The leaked images look a lot like the leaked logic board said to belong to the iPhone 5s. Apple is expected to announce their new iPhones September 10th.

Hands-On With The Red iPhone 5C Back Housing

Sonny Dickson - August 23, 2013

Just when you thought we were already up to our necks in iPhone part leaks, we’ve just gotten our hands on the red iPhone 5C. It’s just like the previous back housing leaks – except, of course, it is red!

A quick note on the red color. Many readers are saying the color seems more pink than it is red. This is true, but if you look at the launch of the 5th generation iPod Touch, the (PRODUCT) RED color looks like the same color, albeit more pink.

Could Apple launch the iPhone 5C as a (PRODUCT)RED edition?

The Truth About the Black iPhone 5C

Sonny Dickson - August 22, 2013

Earlier this week, the Apple “blogosphere” went ablaze over the possibility of a black color option for Apple’s upcoming lower-cost iPhone, referred to by most as the iPhone 5C. The report, which included images of a supposed black iPhone 5C rear shell, originated from Chinese social network Weibo user Ban base de mango (as reported by PhoneArena, and again at BGR). 

The photos that accompanied the report (pictured above) even pictured the black rear shell next to Apple’s current iPhone 5. Unfortunately, while the pictures and accompanying tall-tale of a “news report” might seem interesting at first, there’s a tiny little problem with the report as a whole: it’s completely false.

We can exclusively confirm that not only will Apple not offer a black color option for the iPhone 5C when it is expected to go on sale next month, but in fact, they never planned a black color option in the first place. Continue Reading

Hands-On With The Yellow iPhone 5C Back Housing

Sonny Dickson - August 14, 2013

Following the seemingly limitless number of iPhone 5C prototype pictures we’ve obtained and posted for your viewing pleasure, we’ve gotten our hands on something a little more interesting: A detailed hands-on video of a yellow iPhone 5C back housing! Not only does this further drive home the idea that the 5C will come in multiple colors – it also adds to the already vast amount of confirmation about the device’s design.

On the plastic backing, we find the expected cutouts for the headphone jack, camera and LED flash (which seems to be all-but-confirmed as a single-LED flash rather than a dual-LED flash).

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 5c alongside the iPhone 5s on September 10th. Check out our exclusive video below – and as always, feel free to sound off with your own thoughts and opinions in our comments! Continue Reading

New Photos Showing iPhone 5C Volume Buttons

Sonny Dickson - August 12, 2013

We have come across some clear photos of the volume buttons from the upcoming iPhone 5C. In the photos you can see the volume buttons alongside the power button and mute switch. These buttons have a similar shape to ones found in the iPad mini and the 5th generation iPod Touch, pointing to a design that looks similar to those devices.

The photos have been given to us by a trusted source in China who had had access to device parts.

The 5C will launch in a variety of colors including green, yellow, red and blue; as seen in the images. Is color variation enough to get you interested in Apples first attempt at a budget device? Continue Reading

Hands-On With The Green iPhone 5C Back Housing

Sonny Dickson - August 11, 2013

Just when you thought we were already up to our necks in iPhone part leaks, we’ve just gotten our hands on the green back housing of the iPhone 5C. It’s just like the previous back housing leaks – except in green!

Apple’s always one to pay attention to even minor details – for instance, they’ve customized the color of the side volume buttons and mute buttons to better match the green shell.

Our full set of high-quality pictures of the green casing can be seen below. Enjoy – and don’t forget to comment if you have any thoughts of your own to add! Continue Reading

Hands-On With The White iPhone 5C Back Housing

Sonny Dickson - August 8, 2013

We’ve managed to get our hands on a rear housing part for the iPhone 5C in white directly from our source in Apple’s Asian supply chain. As you can see, the part matches up well with numerous leaks regarding the device dating all the way back to April. This back shell featuring a design similar to the iPhone 3GS, but flatter. The plastic shell is mounted on a stainless steel backplate as well, making it very ridged. On the bottom, you can see that Apple is using speaker and microphone grill layout similar to the one found in the 5th generation iPod Touch.

The white shell gives us the best look yet at the details of the iPhone 5C’s designs. We hope you find our massive gallery of images as enlightening as we did! Continue Reading
