Images apparently showing an instruction manual and other items for the so-called “iPhone 5C” have surfaced. The manual shows an iPhone with a black front and white plastic back running iOS 7. The images were first published by SIM Only Radar. As you can see, the handset includes a Lightning connector at the bottom. Right above it is the home button. On the top left are the volume buttons and the switch for the ringer. Other items found with the new iPhone include Apple stickers, a metal SIM ejector tool, and regulatory documentation. Apple is likely to announce the iPhone 5C, along with the iPhone 5S, as early as next week. In recent days, we've seen plenty of leaks about Apple's budget iPhone. These have included images showing the handset in multiple colors, likely packaging, and more.
