The iPhone 5 is going to replaced by its successor device called the iPhone 5S. If you go the leaked photo which we have shared with you, you can know the low-budget version of iPhone is called the iPhone 5C. However, quite less about what C stands for.

If you look at the plastic covering of the iPhone 5C in the photo, you may feel that the plastic packaging is quite similar to that of the newest iPod touch.
