Purported photos of iPhone 5C final packaging, manuals indicate imminent launch
After numerous photos and video leaks, a couple of new photos of the Apple iPhone 5C have surfaced on the web that indicate the phones are ready to be shipped. The photos show off a bunch of box-packaged iPhone 5C units and the packaging material including the manual further fuel the rumors surrounding the iPhone 5C’s anticipated launch on September 10.
The photo displaying packed units of the phone was spotted by 9to5mac on iApps.im. The iPhone 5C units in this photo look pretty similar to what the earlier leaked photos and videos have suggested, and the packaging pattern also resembles Apple’s boxing style seen for the colorful iPod touch. The packaging for iPhone in the photo comes with red wallpaper matching to the red chassis of the iPhone 5C which was exposed as one of the five colors of iPhone 5C in earlier photos as well.
In another set of photos that surfaced on Weibo, the packaging material including the SIM card ejection tool, and other details, and a manual script highlighting the ‘iPhone 5C’ have been shown off. The phone in the manual cards in the image comes with a white back, black front bezels, and a white wallpaper which confirm that iPhone 5C’s default wallpaper cover will be the same as its plastic rear casing.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 5C along with the iPhone 5S on September 10, though it hasn’t yet sent out any formal invites for the rumored event.
