new ipad 5 video

During Apple’s quarterly earnings call last month, Tim Cook said that the company had some “amazing new hardware” coming this fall. It’s something he’s mention several times over the past few months, and we’ve seen plenty of evidence to back it up.

Over the past 6 months, we’ve seen a number of purported part leaks for different rumored and anticipated Apple products. And today, we’re adding to the pile. This morning, two new videos hit the web of an alleged iPad 5 and the low-cost ‘iPhone 5C’…

The clips come from notorious part and product-leaker Sonny Dickson, who appears to have spotted and reposted the videos from Youku—an Asian version of YouTube. And, if legitimate, they show a partially assembled iPad 5 and the so-called budget iPhone.

Let’s look at the iPad 5 video first:

Since late last year, we’ve been hearing reports that the fifth generation iPad was going to feature a major hardware redesign, and everything we’ve heard since then has corroborated that. The Chatter all points to a lighter, thinner tablet with a mini-like design.

One interesting thing of note here is that unlike the part leak shown in photos earlier this week, which appeared to have a silver Apple logo, the rear shell in the above video appears to have a translucent logo. Don’t get too excited though, it’s still pre-production.

Now for the purported ‘iPhone 5C’ clip:

Just like with the iPad 5, reports and rumors regarding the low-cost iPhone have been very consistent. We learned back in January of this year that Apple was planning on bringing a plastic handset to market, with a design likened to that of an iPhone 5 and iPod touch.

And this report has since been backed up by a number of [purported] leaked plastic shells, which we’ve now seen in at least 5 different colors. In fact, it’s believed that Apple will call the handset the ‘iPhone 5C’ or the ‘iPhone Color’ as a way to differentiate the device.

Both products are expected to launch in the fall, alongside other refreshes. A new flagship iPhone, said to be the iPhone 5S, is also on the menu, with an upgraded camera and built-in fingerprint sensor, as is a new iPad mini, which may or may not have a Retina display.

What do you make of all of this so far?

    i like the white ”iphone 5c” it reminds me of the white macbook that unfortunately was discontinued

    • onebyone_

      I love the white macbook!!
      if have a i7 8gb ram and 1tb of HDD would be the best!!! and of course MAVERICK preinstalled..

    • Antzboogie

      iPhone 5C the C is for Cheap? Lmao!

      • iamairik

        “C” for color

  • Mohammed Sahib

    Finally an iPad with retina display and as thin as iPad 2 or thinner.. Probably gonna get this if the next mini disappoints me.

  • David Gitman

    How cheap you think the 5C will cost?

    • n0ahcruz3

      Not lower than 300 thats for sure. I’ll be surprised if this Thing will cost lower than 300(off-contract) and do not expect this to be priced like lumia 521.

      • Marly Marl

        I think itl be priced like the wen the iPad mini just came out. $329

    • marcus1324

      Well the iPhone 5 16GB is 199, 32 is 299 so I think the 5C will be 99 for 16GB and 199 for 32GB. So 100 dollars cheaper.

      • quitcherbichinn

        the $199, $299, $399 are subsidized prices. ACTUAL cost of a 16gb iPhone is $649, 32gb is $749, 64gb is $849. so if the low cost iPhone costs $300 or $349 unsubsidized full price then it will be $300 cheaper.

      • marcus1324

        That’s only the first time you buy an iPhone after that it’s the price that I mentioned.

      • quitcherbichinn

        no the phone will still cost the same amount every time you buy a new phone or upgrade your phone. if you buy a 16gb iPhone 5 on contract you are going to pay $199; if you buy it full price you are going to pay $649. in September if you buy a 5S you are going to pay $199 subsidized or $649 full price. there is no “only the first time you buy an iPhone” in the equation. it will forever cost the same going from 1 generation to the next.

      • marcus1324

        Thanks for telling me that, what a rip off. So if I buy it on contract it’s 199 though right?

      • quitcherbichinn

        that’s how it has been for 6 years now. (first year you paid full price for the phone)

        so yeah if you get it on contract you’ll pay $199.

      • marcus1324

        Ok that’s what I thought thanks

      • n0ahcruz3

        the iphone 4 still
        Cost like $400+ off contract/ i bet this POS will cost around 300-350. Considering its a cheap iphone that supposed to target budget minded consumers and compete with low end handsets.

  • Elvin Topalov

    The iPhone 5C would be so much more attractive if it had a matte finish./:

  • Bunna Chea

    cheap plastic. Don’t think applefan would buy since it like Samsung, but yet those people just hate everything that apple did not make. So go buy iPhone 5c apple fan

    • Rowan09

      Apple had plastic on their iPhones for the 3G and 3GSs so if they did go back to plastic it has nothing to do with Samsung at all.

      • Bunna Chea

        The point is because people complaint that samsung phone are the worst because it made out of plastic. But it fine for Apple to make their phone out of plastic. That has something to do with Samsung

      • Rowan09

        You’ve held a Samsung phone and don’t believe it’s made cheap for a premium device? I repair phones and yes the Galaxies are made cheap does that make the phone wack no but it’s definitely made cheap. Your now trying to attribute phones with plastic now to a Samsung thing when they were not the first to do it, Apple already used plastic on their phones so you should have said they’re going back to the 3G or 3GS style with plastic instead of following Samsung. Everything is not always about Samsung.

      • Bunna Chea

        You are completely off the topic bro. I’m saying is that people think it ok for apple to make phone with plastic. But they will criticize Samsung for making galaxy out of plastic. Also did I said anything about apple following Samsung. Nor did i said that plastic phone belong to samsung. I also fix phone for my size business. You not the only one. I have note 2 and iphone 5 and I believe both phone are great device. Everything is not about apple all the time also

      • Rowan09

        Your statements implys it’s a Samsung to make phones out of plastic and your completely missing the point. Samsung Galaxy S2/3/4 Note 1/2 are all premium phones, this phone Apple is suppose to be making is not a premium phone it’s a cheap affordable version. You keep saying people say its bad for Samsung to do it but its ok for Apple. If you don’t mean to imply Apple is following Samsung it surely does sound like it. Everything is not about Apple but you brought up Samsung when its an article about an affordable iPhone.

  • Thomas Flores

    Actually I wouldn’t be surprise if the 5c is the 16 gig model and then the 5s is the 32 & 64 gig model. Think the iPod touch now 16 gig is the lower end while the 32gig and the 64gig have all the features

  • seyss

    if you cant pay $199 for the best phone out there you are one cheap bastard

    • n0ahcruz3

      Or one budget minded consumer who doesnt care what kind of phone he/she uses as long as it can make calls and send messages and pay little for monthly fees. Oh and money doesnt grow on trees 😉

    • Marly Marl

      Ur talking about on Contract. Here in Jamaica or in India we have more Off Contract where the foen is sold for the full price. iPhone 5 is $199 on Contract but off Contract its $800

      • seyss

        yes, I feel your difficulties but if you’re smart you’ll do like I did: get someone to come from US with an unlocked iPhone5 (cheapest in the world) and pay the: U$650+tax

  • brandon salas

    honestly i think the iphone 5c wil be available only for 8gb an 16gb since its a cheaper version but who knows lol

    • Kurt

      I agree with you, but it’s 2013, enough with the 8gb phones

      • Rowan09

        I don’t think they’ll continue with the 8GB phones they’re useless in my opinion.

  • Tom

    i hope they dont make 8 gig iphones doesnt matter how cheap they still dont hold much i had a 8 gig and after wiping it had 6.3 available what a rip off

  • Dave Small

    The second the iPhone flips over a video edit point happens, watch it again and you’ll see what I mean, they switched the device in the hand and cut that bit out of the video

  • RogWilco

    Is it just me, or does that alleged iPad 5 seem a little boring and played out? It brings parity to the form factor for the 2 sizes, but I can’t help but think it is more or less the same design since the first generation (with perhaps a small hint of a change in shape to the back).

    I mean, I get it – why mess with success? But at the same time, if anyone could come up with something new and refreshing, one would think Apple could. Aren’t we due for a little bit more of a change than what is pictured in the video?
