iPhone 5c features an all-new design crafted from a single, hard-coated polycarbonate body with a steel reinforced frame for a solid, sturdy feel. The steel frame holds the internal components and also doubles as the iPhone 5c’s multiband antenna.

The enclosure is one continuous and seamless structure that is finished with a hard coat for a durable and incredibly glossy surface.
