The features of the iPhone 5C include a 1.3-gigahertz dual-core processor, 8 gigabytes of available storage, a 4-inch diagonal multi-touch display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.2-megapixel front camera. Apple also offered 16- and 32-gigabyte storage models. The 5C was discontinued when Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The iPhone 5C uses high-quality polycarbonate housing strengthened by a steel band. It weighs 132 grams, which makes it heavier than the 5 and 5S but lighter than previous iPhone models. It is thicker than the fifth-generation iPod Touch but similar in design. It was sold in five colors: blue, green, yellow, pink and white.
The 5C features iOS 7, released on Sept. 20, 2013, and utilizes multi-touch gestures. It can act as a hot spot and share its Internet connection over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or USB. The 5C includes Siri, Apple’s personal assistant and knowledge navigator. It uses the Apple A6 chip system, which utilizes 1 gigabyte of RAM and a tri-core PowerVR SGX543MP3 graphics processing unit that runs at 266 megahertz. The 5C does not have some popular features of the 5S, such as the Touch ID fingerprint scanner or the M7 motion co-processor. However, it supports taking still photos during video recording, as well as digital zooming.
