Leaked images published last week and over the weekend may for the first time reveal the retail packaging in which Apple’s upcoming mid-range iPhone 5C will launch. The images come from a variety of sources, including well-known insider C Technology, who has previously published a number of photos showing various unreleased Apple parts and devices that are believed to be authentic. The packaging will apparently be quite similar to Apple’s iPod touch boxes, which feature a transparent plastic lid that allows consumers to see which color device is packed inside the box; like the iPod touch, Apple’s new iPhone 5C will reportedly be available in a variety of colors when it launches later this month. Earlier reports suggest the iPhone 5C will debut alongside the flagship iPhone 5S during a press conference next week on September 10th ahead of the handsets’ launch on September 20th. Several leaked photos of the purported iPhone 5C packaging follow below.
