Apple’s new iPhone is iPhone 5C?

Interesting enough, the iPhone 5C with plastic packaging appeared on a Chinese forum recently, which gave a possible clue as to what the low-priced iPhone would be named. This doesn’t mean that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release the iPhone 5C, we won’t know for sure until Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is ready to make their announcement. Many phone accessory companies are hoping to cash in already by releasing cases for a rumored product.

The Los Angeles Times reports, “According to an unnamed source in a Business Insider report this week, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) plans on calling the plastic iPhone the iPhone 5C, with the “C” standing for “color.” That would be because the plastic iPhone is expected to be available in a variety of color options. But as the report points out, don’t be surprised when people mock the name, saying the “C” stands for “cheap.” So when can we expect the iPhone 5C? According to the report, it will launch alongside the iPhone 5S, which may be some time in late September.”
