Looks like we’re seeing more of the iPhone 5C. This time it’s what looks like the handset in the packaging it will ship in.
At this point it seems very real. Everything matches up, and all the rumors are too much to deny. Let’s just hope Apple can pull out some sort of surprise. Right now, the folks at Apple may be cursing the entire internet and blogosphere.
That said, little leaks like this do two things for anticipation: 1) they either build it up when it’s something we want to see as official. 2) they ensure that people don’t become too excited and anticipate more than we will get from the next iPhone.
As it is, the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C should look pretty much like the iPhone 5 does right now. It’s possible that this will keep anticipation to a realistic level.
