Apple has unveiled two new iPhones, including a cheaper plastic version in bright colours and an updated high-end device with a fingerprint scanner.
A new iPhone known as the 5C will come in five colours: blue, green, pink, yellow and white.
The high-end model, called the iPhone 5S, will be available in gold, silver and grey.
The iPhone 5C is part of Apple’s bid to counter the flood of low-cost smartphones from rivals, most of which use Google’s Android operating system.
The higher-end iPhone 5S will come in gold, silver and grey and has a 64-bit A7 chip the company claims will make it work twice as fast as the iPhone 5.
It also has fingerprint-sensor technology located on the phone’s home button, which people can use to unlock their phone and confirm purchases from iTunes and Apple’s app store.
Apple also revamped its mobile software with the introduction of iOS 7, which will be available on the new phones and as a free update for existing iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches from September 18.
Both phones will be available from Apple as well as through Telstra, Optus and Vodafone from Friday, September 20.
