    Was talking to a friend and this question came up. I got really curious but couldn't find anything online (besides which iphone 5 Ive used). Anybody know?

    Last year there was a photo for Bloomberg Magazine with Ive using a naked Gold 5s, same as Craig and Cook a Blue 5c with an Apple Case. Weird, how the CEO uses a inferior device with a case on it.

    Edit : found the photo.

    Whatever they're using, I hope it bends.

    Edit, I just had quite the moment imagining the ensuing carnage if Steve Jobs's iPhone bent from keeping it in a pocket.

    I've read Ive is a fan of white iPhones so that's what he probably uses.

    Someone asked Cook whether he used the 6 or 6+ and his response was he uses both. Of course, he's not going to say which he actually uses on a regular basis so as not to influence sales.

    Maybe a subtle way to promote the colorful, playful nature of the 5C? And to say it's a valid choice even if you can afford the 5S?

    If I was in Cooks position I would rock the newest and the oldest that were for sale and try to use them both for as much as possible. Use the new to make sure I'm not selling crap, use the old to make sure choices I made to move forward didn't mess it up.

    I wish that Cook and Ive felt the same way I do...

    Yep. I thought of that too.

    "Oh, look.. the CEO uses a 5c, it must be great"

    i think the 5c is a great no-fuss phone. most people i know with a 5 have no desire to upgrade to a 6. i guess then same goes for those with 5cs.

    and the colourful cases make them really stand out in a world of bland monolithic black slabs

    remember the candyshell imac g3s?

    Yeah, it's too bad they've completely hobbled it with the nearly useless 8GB capacity.

    WHY THE HELL is Apple selling an 8GB phone in 2014? I would have rather they just discontinued it at this point.

    For some reason, I just can't see Cook using the Plus.

    If I were the CEO of Apple I'd probably just constantly be using the phone that's selling the least.

    probably whatever one he wants, personalized with the newer internals the 6 has.

    Yeah, here's 3 pictures of him.. in the first one he has a White 3GS and in the second one a White 5.
    Since 2013 he uses the Gold models, as you can see in the 3rd picture.

    TBH, I'm more curios about what color Phill uses. He's so dull yet agitated.

    Neither Ive or Cook are as cool as The Woz, one of the original founders of Apple. Wozniak is known to carry 10 different smartphones in a backpack. He has iPhones, Nexus devices, Xiaomis, etc. And with Tap & Go feature found on Lollipop, he would have an easy time switching between his Android devices wirelessly. The Woz is the epitome of a cool, uber nerd.

    [Had no idea J-Ive was such a smooth operator (ref "finger pistol" and "ladies" pics above). Does the gold iphone confer that much swag? For better/worse I chose space gray, and I'm living a space gray kinda life.]

    Based on there not being any actual sightings, I agree...they likely don't want to be photographed with one over the other, as it would affect public perception/sales.

    Yeah seriously they should have made the 5c 32GB's and sell it for $99 and then the 5s 32GB's and sell it for $149. I mean if your going to get screwed with no space at least get the iPhone 6! You can look hip and no one will know you have a 16GB phone in 2014! :D :D

    They probably have many and switch SIM cards at will.
