In one of Apple's signature Cupertino events, the technology company unveiled its latest iPhones. One is a cheaper version of the pricey smartphone, called the 5C. The other, which had fevered speculation going for weeks, is the 5S. Today Philip Schiller, Apple's Senior VP of Global Marketing, called the "most forward thinking phone we have ever created."
