September 10th Event: One Week Later

Share this:

It has officially been a week since Apple has revealed their new iPhones.  We saw the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C be announced, but some other products came out too, but were left unannounced.  Here’s the recap:

iPhone 5C: the mid-tier iPhone 5 in multiple colors

Apple usually decreases the price of the previous generation iPhone when they release a new one.  In theory, Apple should have brought the iPhone 5 to $99, the iPhone 4S to $0 and the new iPhone 5S was starting at $199.  However, they switched things up and discontinued the iPhone 5 in favor of the updated iPhone 5C, which is available in multiple colors.  It has similar specifications to the iPhone 5, like camera (back: 8MP, front: 1.2MP), A6 processor, LED flash, panorama, etc., but it is also a little heavier (lighter than the iPhone 4S), has a polycarbonate (plastic) back, slightly larger and bulkier and a battery battery.  This iPhone starts at $99 for the 16GB model on contract.

 

iPhone 5S: the best iPhone 5 ever

This iPhone was highly expected because Apple always announces a new numbered iPhone (ex: iPhone 4, iPhone 5) and a year later, they announce an updated model with the “S” attached (ex: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S).  This model has improved specifications and always includes some extraordinary, like the iPhone 3GS had a video camera, iPhone 4S had Siri and now the iPhone 5S has TouchID (fingerprint scanner).  This iPhone is the same size and weight or the iPhone 5, it has an improved battery, a new A7 processor with a separate M7 motion tracking processor, the ability to take slow motion videos, a dual LED flash and TouchID.  This iPhone starts at $199 and comes in Black/Space Gray, White/Gold and White/Silver.

 

iPods: the silent color update

The iPods were silently updated to include Apple’s new Space Gray color.  The specifications remain the same, but this new color is now available.  Since Apple decided to quietly update the old models with Space Gray, this suggests they will not be updating the iPods anytime soon.  Although the iPod Classic has not been updated since 2009, it is still available in two colors.

 

If you noticed any other updates to iDevices, leave a comment below.

Finally, don’t forget iOS 7 is coming out tomorrow.  Based on Apple’s history, they usually release the new operating system sometime between 9:30am and 10:30am PST or 1:30pm and 2:30pm EST.  Make sure you back up your iDevice before you update.
