The rumor that the iPhone 5C is Apple's low-cost device is picking up steam after Mac Otakara published a video allegedly showing the rear shell and front bezel of the phone. The video was published alongside another video showing off a partially assembled iPad 5.
There have been plenty of alleged low-cost iPhone leaks, but this is the first one we have seen since an image of some iPhone 5C packaging popped up online. It is unknown if any of the images are real, or if the iPhone 5C is even Apple's rumored budget iPhone.
Other rumors have suggested that Apple plans to release a non-Retina iPad mini, or even a low-budget iPad mini in time for the holiday shopping season. Several sources have indicated that a shortage of Retina display panels have caused Apple to delay the launch of iPad mini 2. If the supply chain rumors are true, Apple could possibly announce the iPad mini with Retina display in 2014.
Apple is expected to announce the fifth-generation iPad , iPhone 5S and possibly the iPhone 5C as early as next month.
