"The ring around the home button is just a detection ring which turns on the Touch ID sensor," said Apple. "The home button is sapphire so it won't scratch. It can handle multiple fingerprints too," Apple said.

Apart from this, Apple also launched a new entry level smartphone, the iPhone 5C,  made from the 'incredible technology' of the iPhone 5. Some time back there were reports of Apple going for cheap phones to expand its market. Though later the company denied such reports.

The phone runs on a A6 processor, the same as iPhone 5. The phone has a slightly larger battery than iPhone 5.
