The iPhone 5C, at least that’s what rumors suggest it’ll be called, will be Apple’s “cheap” iPhone. I put an emphasis on cheap because what’s affordable to you might not be affordable to someone else.

iPhone 5C could be priced at $450 – $500

The “budget” iPhone. The “cheap” iPhone. The “iPhone 5C”. Whatever you want to call it, we all know that Apple is going to launch an affordable version of their highly popular mobile phone this year. What we don’t know is when, what the specs are, and how much it’s going to cost. Thanks to a listing on Amazon, however, we might have a better idea as to when the 5C will actually be released.
