Each year, for the past five years, Apple has conducted an annual launch party for the iPhone. At each event a new device was introduced to much fanfare. This year’s launch happened on September 10, and turned out to be a bit different from any previous ones. The main difference being that Apple launched not one, but two new iPhones. This has left some people scratching their heads and wondering that the difference is between the devices.
Below is an overview of the two different phones recently launched by Apple.
The iPhone 5c
Some joke that the ‘c’ stands for ‘cheap’, and that’s just what this phone is. Kind of. Here’s what we know:
The iPhone 5s
Does the ‘s’ stand for ‘supreme’? Maybe. This new device is Apple’s high-end smartphone. Here’s what we know:
Which is better?
It is hard to say which device is better. When compared purely on technical specifications, the 5s is the more impressive device. That being said, most small to medium businesses don’t look solely at the tech specs, instead focusing on price and usability as well.
When it comes to price, the 5c – on contract – is hard to beat. It has more than enough processing power to handle nearly any task and usability should be the same as previous versions of the iPhone. The only worry is the actual durability – while Apple is known to produce high quality devices, the type of case used on the 5c is new, so whether this will be as durable as the 5s will remain to be seen. That being said, putting a case on it will likely negate any issues.
When can I get my hands on one?
If you are looking for a new phone, pre-orders for the iPhone 5c started September 13, with first delivery scheduled for September 20. Knowing how popular Apple’s products are, there may be a bit of a wait for delivery.
The 5s will be available to order from September 20, with first delivery likely being in late September to early October.
