Well, the iPhone 5C has been confirmed by Apple has arrived in all its plasticy glory. One the new iPhones presented today by Apple, the 5C will be available in a multitude of colors and falls into the mid-range smartphone niche that Apple was rumored to be trying to get into.

The iPhone 5C will be available in five colors: Green, yellow, blue, white, and red. From the looks of it, the iPhone 5C design has been modeled around the iOS 7 design and it the pastel colors of it matches compliments well with the new operating system.
