Leaked iPhone 5C packaging resembles iPod touch Case

Apple logoAnother day, another iPhone leak. A tantalizing picture is making the rounds on Chinas WeiPhone forums showing the potential plastic enclosure, or shipping container, of the iPhone 5C.

You read that right. If this image is to be believed, Apple apparently plans to call its budget smartphone iPhone 5C. Which, of course, doesnt rule out the iPhone 5S, which is expected to look much like the current-selling iPhone 5.

The iPhone 5C, on the other hand, is expected to have a plastic (polycarbonate) body, and specs that match those of the iPhone 5.

A plastic enclosure would therefore also make sense, though its hard to believe Apple will move away from its environmentally-friendly packaging just to make the shipping container consistent with the phone inside.

Leaked iPhone 5C packaging resembles iPod touch Case

The cases could be made of the same material Apple uses to package its ear pods (for the iPod line), but the glare isnt typical to any biodegradable material. In other words, the boxes are almost certainly 100% plastic.

As far as the 5C dubbing goes, the C reportedly stands for color. Apple is said to be shipping its budget iPhone in blue, red, green, yellow, and white.

Even though a plastic iPhone box may be hard to stomach, Apple is already shipping several products in such enclosures, including the popular iPod touch.

The iPod touch (and several other iPods) have plastic enclosures made up of two parts: an opaque rear shell, and a transparent front lid which allows customers to glance at the product itself before opening up the box.

This gives the leak some credibility, but were skeptical that Apple plans to fill the market with polluting materials, amid growing concerns that electronics makers are not doing enough to stay green.

In fact, Apple has an entire website section dedicated to showing its efforts in this area, and this image isnt consistent with the companys mission to lower its carbon footprint.
