Conan Gets Called Out By Fan For Trying To Install iOS 7 On His iPhone 3GS [Video]

But as this video proves, the reality is more complicated than that.

Apple is expected to announce a new low-cost iPhone later this year in an effort to compete with rivals like Samsung in emerging markets. Reports have suggested that to keep costs low, the Cupertino company will give it a plastic form factor similar to that of the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS.

And now that plastic shell appears to have been leaked for the first time.
