  Original Published: 9/11/2013 Apple put weeks of rumors to rest by unveiling not just one, but two, new versions of its signature smartphone. The I-Phone 5-S and I-Phone 5-C made their debut in California Tuesday. But are they enough to satisfy investors? Karin Caifa looks at the difference between the two models, and how Apple is adding a splash of color to its line. Hoping two is better than one, Apple unveiled a double dose of I-Phone. "We are going to replace the I-Phone 5 and we're going to replace it with not one, but two new designed," said Tim Cook, Apple CEO. The I-Phone 5-C is a budget version of Apple's smartphone, plastic with a steel frame, available in five colors and priced at $99 for the 16-gigabyte version, with a two-year contract. It's camera and processor are similar to the current I-Phone 5. The pricier %-S breaks Apple's black-and-white mold in silverm gold and space grey. "It's packed with incredible technologies, technologies that are in service of helping people use these devices more in the ways that we all want to," says Phil Schiller, Apple Senior Vice President. The 5-S boasts a fingerprint sensor to replace passwords and Apple says the 5-S, with its new processor, is twice as fast as the I-Phone 5, also with an improved camera and flash. But new colors aside, the 5-C and 5-S still look a lot like the I-Phone revealed last fall, that may leave some disappointed. But at least one analyst says, it may not be Apple's fault. "I don't think we should expect Apple of Samsung or Google or Microsoft or any of these players to really kind of come out with something that's going to change the world again like the original I-Phone did," says Evan Niu, Motely Fool Tech and Telecom Bureau Chief. Meanwhile, the latest update to Apple's operating system, I-O-S-&, will be available for free download on Wednesday, Sept. 18. The I-Phone 5-S and 5-C will be in stores next Friday, Sept. 20.
