Feast your eyes, phone fans, upon the iPhone 5S and 5C! Apple's next generation of smart phone has arrived in a rainbow of colour -- and you can see the first official pictures above.

Apple announced the brace of new smart phones yesterday. The top-of-the-line 5S comes in three subtle shades for its metal case, while the cheaper 5C comes in a cornucopia of colours for its cheery plastic shell. Both show off Apple's cutting-edge iOS 7 software.

We've covered the new phones in depth from the launch event, so here's the important information you need to know. Once you've had a gander at our gallery, click the links below to find out more…

The new iPhone 5S will set you back £549. And the iPhone 5C will cost £469.

Both phones are out on 20 September -- a week Friday -- so you've got just over a week to save up. If you want to update your existing iPhone or iPad, the iOS 7 download is out on 18 September for iPhone 4, 4S and 5.

Which UK networks will sell the iPhone? Quickest off the blocks are O2 and Vodafone, complete with head-spinning 4G data speeds.

But if you're stuck on which powerhouse smart phone would suit you and your wallet, check out our handy comparison of the iPhone 5S, 5C, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One prices.

What do you think of the iPhone 5S and 5C? Should Apple have stuck to plain old black and white? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or taste the rainbow on our Facebook wall.
