iPhone 5S iPhone 5C Event Video Now Available Online
Following today’s event, Apple has now posted video of its reveal of the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C.
While users can’t download the video itself, they can stream the video on Apple’s website if they have Apple’s QuickTime movie player installed. Users with a second or third-generation Apple TV can also watch the video on the set top box as well.
The video encompasses the entirety of Apple’s announcements today. That includes a breakdown of Apple’s iPhone sales numbers exactly 1 minute into the program. Users who want to focus today’s hardware and software announcements may want to skip ahead 8 minutes into the program.
It’s at that 8 minute mark that Apple begins detailing some of the features it showed off during its earlier reveal of iOS 7. The operating system will come equipped on every single new iPhone sold. iOS 7 includes support for third-party gaming controllers and a new user interface that will replace the staid drab look of the previous six versions of the operating system.
