Apple officially announced the much-anticipated gadget for the budget friendly seekers. The lower cost device designed to appeal to buyers who wants to experience the apple environment without spending much for the premium materials.
The hardware specs are identical to that of iPhone 5, so it is the great for those who were looking forward to this device. However, we felt that the iPhone 5C might not be that cheap as expected, whether you buy it on contract or without it.
