In September 2013, the iPhone 5c was announced as a lower-priced and lower-end follow-on to the iPhone 5. Looking very similar to the older phone, the iPhone 5c had a polycarbonate shell, as opposed to the aluminium body of the 5. What the iPhone 5c did have, however, was a multitude of potential colour combinations. The phone itself was available in a range of pastel shades, and Apple also marketed a set of coloured cases with cut-outs which showed the body colour – this approach made 30 different combinations of colours possible, which proved extremely popular. The Apple cases were made from silicone, with a soft microfibre lining to act as a shock-absorber to protect the phone and its electronics.
The internal operation of the iPhone 5c was more or less identical to the iPhone 5 apart from several minor details, but it was the first iPhone to be issued with iOS 7, which was a total re-design for Apple’s operating system. iOS 7 delivered a new set of icons, a new easy to access Control Center which enables simple adjustments and personalisation, additional functions such as a torch, and this version introduced AirDrop for file sharing – all in all a major and welcome upgrade.
Whether you have fitted your iPhone 5c into one of Apple’s beautiful bespoke coloured cases, or you have chosen to use a cheaper version, the polycarbonate body of the phone is not immune to damage, and nor is the black glass screen.
