CUPERTINO, Calif. - Apple says it is planning to release two new iPhone designs later this year so it can serve more customers.

The iPhone 5C, which will be available in five colors - green, blue, yellow, pink and white. CEO Tim Cook calls it "more fun and colorful" than any other iPhone. The 5C has a 4-inch Retina display and is powered by Apple's A6 chip. It also has an 8 megapixel camera, live photo filters and a rear cover that lights up.

The iPhone 5C will cost $99 for a 16 gigabyte model and $199 for a 32 gigabyte model with a two-year wireless contract.

The other model is the 5s, a speedier version of the current iPhone 5 using a new 64-bit A7 chip and sporting a camera which can shoot bursts of multiple pictures per second. Apple said the chip makes the 5s twice as fast as previous generations of iPhones.

The 5s will also debut a new fingerprint sensor called TouchID which will be used to identify a phone's user, replacing the security code as a way to unlock the phone. It will cost $199 for a 16GB model, $299 for 32GB, and $399 for 64GB.

Both phones will be available for purchase on Sept. 20, while people can pre-order the 5c starting Sept. 13.
