A pair of new videos featuring upcoming products from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) have appeared over the weekend. One shows off what appears to be an iPhone casing and the iPhone 5C name with a question mark across the bottom of the screen. The other shows off the rear shell of an iPad, which is supposedly the iPad 5.
Rumors around the iPhone 5C heighten
The iPhone 5C name first appeared last month when some packaging with that name was supposedly photographed inside a factory. Just a day later, some cases for the iPhone 5C appeared on Amazon. Now we have this video that’s been posted on the Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo and then spotted by the Dutch-language site iphone5skopen. From there, it was picked up by a number of other sites.
Many are speculating that the iPhone 5C is none other than the low cost version of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone, which has been rumored to be in the works for quite some time. Some believe it will long along with the flagship model, which is expected to be the iPhone 5S, although some are still holding out hope for the iPhone 6 to be out this year.
iPad 5 video looks to be in line with other alleged leaks
The other video shows off what could be the iPad 5’s front glass. The bezel on the glass is narrower than that of the current model. Also the back of the casing looks as if it has a somewhat translucent Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) logo, which hints at a backlit logo like MacBooks have.
At this point Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPad Mini is still upstaging the iPad 5 in the media. There’s a lot of debate about whether the next mini will feature a Retina display or not. Some believe Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) needs to do this to stay in the game, while others think there will be two minis released—one with a Retina display and one without.
