We've not seen a plastic iPhone since the 3GS, but the iPhone 5C wants to prove that the durable, easily molded material is long overdue a revival. Launched alongside the iPhone 5S this morning, and taking the spot in the midrange that we'd expected to see the iPhone 5 demoted to, the polycarbonate 5C uses the same 4-inch Retina display screen as the 5S but trims some of the other specifications to reach a $99 (on-contract) price point. Read on for some first-impressions.

We were expecting a flagship and Apple gave us one: the iPhone 5S takes the core of the iPhone 5 and refines it even further, adding biometric security, a speedy new processor, and new camera features both in software and hardware.

iPhone 5S official: first smartphone on market with 64-bit SoC

After much anticipation for the device that'll one-up the iPhone 5, Apple has revealed the iPhone 5S in full.
