Apparent 'iPhone 5C' instruction manual surfaces in the Netherlands

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
A series of new images from the Netherlands claim to show a instruction manual that will ship with the Dutch version of Apple's forthcoming "iPhone 5C."

5C


In addition to the "5C" name, the manual shared by SIM Only Radar appears to show an iPhone with a black glass front, and white plastic back. An image in the manual shows the device running iOS 7, and points out the standard iPhone features such as a Lightning connector, home button, lock button, volume buttons, and mute switch.

Other materials included with the alleged "iPhone 5C" manual are also the usual items found with a new iPhone: official Apple stickers, a metal SIM ejector tool, and the standard regulatory documentation.

Apple is expected to introduce both the "iPhone 5C" and a new high-end "iPhone 5S" at a media event next Tuesday. Apple has already blocked AppleCare employees' time off from Sept. 15 through 28, and the new devices are expected to become available to customers across the world on Friday, Sept. 20.

5C


Multiple leaks have shown Apple's new plastic iPhone will feature the same 4-inch display as the iPhone 5. It's expected to entirely replace the iPhone 5 in Apple's fall 2013 lineup, meaning it will likely be priced at $99 with a new two-year service contract.

Market watchers expect the "iPhone 5C" will attract new customers to Apple's smartphone lineup, particularly with its low cost and new color options made possible because of a plastic back. It's been projected that the handset will be sold for around $400 without a contract subsidy.

If these things are now showing up in the Netherlands (not just in some factory in China) they must be almost ready to start selling. So why does the article say they're expected to become available on the 20th? I think Tim will give the "Available Today" line next Wednesday.

Awesome :)

Good to see that Tim's doubling down on secrecy is working.......

All these leaks spoil the enjoyment of the big reveal so much.

I think it's actually quite early for this to pop up. Normally products get send out two days in advance. At least, that's what APR's tell me. And I've seen the delivery of the first and second gen iPad arrive two days before they went on sale.

Well, whatever. We'll see next Tuesday, I guess. Still, no official word heh?

You're right... I wonder if the talk was originally going to be this Wednesday but got pushed back a week for some reason?

I don't know about European prices, but I think the Walmart pricing rumor is probably close to being right. They have the cheapest 5S at $649 and the cheapest 5C at $449 (no contract prices) in the U.S. That sounds about right.

In Tim's defense, I think he was referring to new projects. That's where secrecy really matters. Right now everyone is trying to beat Apple to the punch with wearable tech. What ,along that line, will Apple be doing? Tether able phone accessory? Dick Tracy video phone? Health meter? S&M gear? Keep them guessing.

It just doesn't seem possible to me to keep the latest model phones secret, something that is being produced in the tens of millions for an international roll out. Although it would make the early Christmas reveal more fun if they could. Alas.

What do you KNOW about the 5s? What do you KNOW about the mac refresh? What about iPods? What about software suits updates? what about possible iwatch andTV? Looks great to me.

 

The 5c, besides being a fantastic product, is also a "bone" for bloggers to run after.

post #14 of 45
Well really, what do we know for sure about any of the upcoming phones?

Nothing but a whole lot of "apparent" instruction manuals and "possible" pictures of devices.

However... The last 3 years the reveal has only shown the accuracy of the leaks leading up to it.

Apple have been famous for their secrecy, but the excitement of a surprise reveal during their keynotes is disappearing.

Who can blame the press for not being excited, and giving a "meh" response after the keynote for something they've known about weeks in advance?

It's like Christmas would be if the kids knew well in advance what's wrapped up for them - sure there's a bit if excitement 'cause they get to play with the pressies, but the build up and suspension leading to unwrapping the unknown?

Gone.

And starting to go for Apple. Hopefully, they've kept something up their sleeve, otherwise I'll be happy with a new 5S to buy, even though there doesn't seem much surprise...

I think we can all agree next Wednesday is a typo - every tech website, including this one has said it is next Tuesday. Please fix.

So what exactly does the "C" stand for? does it represent "Cheap?" I hope not...
 

post #18 of 45

The general consensus is that C stands for Color/Colour.

post #19 of 45
I've heard "Color." But everything is a rumor at this point, so who knows.
post #20 of 45
"C" will stand for Cool!

Just take the money from my out stretched hand....

And put the new iPhone, MacBook Pro, iPad Mini or iPad in my hands already!

Oh and maybe a Haswell iMac too!

Thanks.

What if the 5C will replace the iPod Touch (same price point) and be configured out of the gate ready for pre-paid mobile.

post #23 of 45
Hmm... I have this feeling for quite some time now... But I think this iPhone 5C is going to replace the iPod touch.

All those colors match the current iPod touch line. Also, I know a lot of people who can't afford an iPhone so they go for iPod Touch instead. What do you guys think?

True. However, lots of people are needed in a coordinated product launch, including the people who print inserts, etc. and they're going to *see* it. I'm surprised it works 99.9% of the time, all things considered.

Is it just me or do other people find the two dark blackish icons on the home screen a bit of an eyesore?

I'm coming round to the pastel colours and flatter icons, but the black seems to go against this.

Apple kept the new Mac Pro under wraps before its unveiling at this year's WWDC. So yes, they can still surprise you.

Would be very disappointing for them not to include both FaceTime and Siri.

Not really.

No.


Gone.

 

You know absolutely nothing whatsoever about the device. Enough.

I just looked on Apple's website & no FaceTime listed under iOS 7. Hmm?!? Did I miss something?

 

I also didn't see FaceTime under the Camera functions...

Yeah, it was nice to watch that part and not know what was coming next.

The big difference being though that it wasn't a model being ramped up for production. It may be that for new product lines they need to now allow for a longer gap between announcing and production/shipping so that they can avoid all these leaks.

Hard to do when you're needing pre production in the millions to keep up with launch demand - and investor/press expectation that every year many more are sold on launch week.

The other big factor here is the desirability of the iPhone now. It's become such a big focus of interest for the public and press, which drives more people to want to dig harder and take more risks for rumours.
