iPhone 5C’s rubber buttons on view

The latest leak suggests that the cheaper iPhone will indeed come in a variety of bright colours

Serial smartphone leaker Sonny Dickson has been the best source of (alleged) iPhone 5C images on the web, and this week he even got his hands on the buttons destined for Apple’s (alleged) forthcoming “budget” smartphone.

Dickson posted images of green, yellow, blue and pink buttons, and they appear to be made of rubber rather than the metal used on previous iPhones. That fits in with the iPhone 5C’s more affordable nature, we suppose, while the bright new colours likely match up with the finish on the plastic casing. That suggests that blue, pink, green and yellow 5Cs are on the way (as well as white, most likely).

The iPhone 5C is tipped for a 10th September reveal, alongside a new flagship iPhone 5S model.
