iPhone 5C – “The phone you love, broken”; [video]
Apple has unveiled a new iPhone model much earlier than expected. What’s the hurry, APPL?! 12-21-12?
Anyway, the new smarty is the iPhone 5C (and not iPhone 5S as some people may have expected), and it will be the 7th generation iPhone. The model seems to target primarily college-aged girls that tend to shatter the display of the device in various scenarios. Therefore Apple seems to have paid special attention to the screen of the phone. Namely, in order to prevent it from cracking, they have come up with a pre-shattered display – that is a front panel that looks and behaves exactly like broken glass. In Apple’s words, the iPhone 5C is “the best new iPhone since you broke your last iPhone.”
Reporting for The Onion, Nina Shankar details the features of the new product, and explains what iPhone 5C models will be available to the public. Have a look, and make sure you check out all the details, from Tim Cook’s statements to Apple’s website:
By now you must have realized that we’re talking about a great Onion spoof, which makes fun of the iPhone’s tendency to break when dropped against a solid surface. In all fairness though, the spoof is better suited for older iPhone models with both the front and back made of glass, as the iPhone 5 does very well when accidentally dropped.
Maybe the most hilarious part of the video is the ending, in which The Onion details Apple’s next iPhone, a model that will target dads, not that we’re going to spoil it for you.
