What does iPhone 5 look like? The iPhone 5 was Apple’s flagship handset for late 2012, but it had a very truncated lifespan, being available only a year before it was superseded by the iPhone 5S and replaced by the iPhone 5C. The latter handset had the same internal specification as the iPhone 5, but used a colourful plastic shell instead. We thought this was a pity as the iPhone 5 was a lovely phone, and the new 5C wasn’t really any cheaper given its plastic construction. This video is showing how iPhone 5 look like.
