An alleged leaked photo posted on the WeiPhone forums shows a bin full of plastic packaging for the “iPhone 5C,” which may be the name of Apple’s budget iPhone. Though different from previously cardboard iPhone boxes, the new white plastic packaging appears to be legitimate, featuring a slightly thinned iPhone font on the sides, as well as a blank flat rear surface to accommodate the late addition of a more descriptive sticker. Like iPod boxes, the front cap will likely be clear, highlighting the color of the device inside.


iLounge predicted months ago that Apple’s budget iPhone would be called the iPhone 5C, potentially based on “C” as marketing shorthand for “color” in the shells. A number of leaks subsequently suggested that Apple has tested the phone in a variety of different colors. [via Macotakara]
