Binful of iPhone 5C plastic packaging captured in China could possibly be the name of Apple’s upcoming budget iPhone. The packaging clearly shows ‘iPhone 5C’ on its sides and it is pretty similar to the packaging of the 5G iPod touch.
However, there’s no confirmation if the photo is for real or just a rip off from China. Even if it’s being Photoshop-ed, that’s awfully a lot of effort to fool the consumer. And if it’s for real, the assumption would be that the C will stand for ‘Colour’ or ‘plastiC’ or ‘polyCarbonate’ or ‘Consumer’ and even ‘Cheap’. iPhone 5C could even be for the 5 colour options available for the budget iPhone.
Ironically, The Onion came up with this parody earlier this year. (below)
