Apple Officially Announces iPhone 5S and 5C

Apple Officially Announces iPhone 5S and 5C | The Content Marketing Hat | Scoop.it
Apple has held their event and officially ended the rampant rumors on what is coming in Apple's flagship product: the iPhone. And surprisingly, the rumor mill was largely spot on.
Mike Allton's insight:

It's Official. iPhone 5S and 5C Available in 10 Days.

The new iPhones will be in stores on Sept. 20th and as expected, we'll have a choice of the iPhone 5C in blue, white, green, yellow or red; and the iPhone 5S in black, gold or silver.

Impressive. Most impressive.

As an iPhone 4S user, I can't wait to upgrade. The new iPhone 5S is pretty amazing, with a powerful A7 chip, 64-bit architecture, and impressive graphics.

And the new iOS7 will be available as a free download to everyone a couple days earlier.

If you're interested in all of the specs and details, including the new camera, fingerprint sensor and more, check out this afternoon's coverage.

But here's the question I'm most interested in:

Would you consider the iPhone 5C, knowing that it's essentially an iPhone 5, a premium product? And if so, what then is the iPhone 5S? Or do you think the 5C is really a cheaper model? Are you interested in either or both for yourself?

Thanks for your comments!!

Special thanks to +Chris Pirillo for his running commentary during the announcements. If you have a chance, be sure to listen to his YouTube recording of the event, and mention "pancake" in the comments.

Warning: This will improve your blog traffic by 25%

Every time you publish a new blog post or article, it includes a title or headline. How much time do you spend thinking about that headline? If you're like most business owners, you probably only spend a couple of minutes. It's the content of your blog itself that's most important, right? Wrong! The fact is, most of your potential readers will decide whether or not to read your article based SOLELY on your headline!
