The new iPhone 5S and 5C launch took place today and despite everything we knew about the two devices, still many Apple fanboys seemed shocked to see so many of the rumored specs and features actually playing out. All over social media we see people saying that Steve Jobs must be turning over in his grave right now.

So, what's so shocking about the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C? The iPhone 5S, which follows the iPhone 5 as a refresh model, sports a 64-bit processor allowing for lightening fast speeds up to 31 percent snappier that the earlier model. In addition, we know it will be running the new iOS 7 which will go out to the public on Sep. 20, 2013 for all iPhones, iPads and iPods that support it. The iPhone 5S will also come with a third color choice of gold or champagne but will replace the standard "white" we've become accustomed to, with a "space" gray we've seen in leaked photos recently. The iPhone 5S will also include a new fingerprint sensor for increased security.

The iPhone 5C will feature 5 colors: blue, green, pink, yellow and white. The iPhone 5C also will have cases available in blue, green, pink, yellow, black and white. The iPhone 5C pre-orders begin September 13, 2013 (Photo: Apple)

As for the iPhone 5C, the big surprise here is that Apple has actually gone through with a budget iPhone model in a variety of colors — and all of them encased in plastic. That's right, if you never thought you'd hear the words iPhone and plastic come together in the same sentence, think again. The economy iPhone 5C comes in blue, green, pink, yellow and white. However, you can also buy a case for the iPhone 5C. Cases are available in blue, green, pink, yellow, black and white. Pre-orders for the new iPhone 5C will start on September 13, 2013 in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK, one week ahead of the official release date of Friday, September 20, 2013.

Despite Apple's work to improve the iPhone 5S' speed and security while reaching a new group of consumers with the plastic iPhone 5C, the word on the Web seems to indicate that hardcore Apple fanboys are disappointed by the new offerings. Soon after the new iPhone 5S and 5C were launched, the name Steve Jobs started trending high on Twitter. Looking through the tweets under those keywords, it looked like most were wishing the Apple founder were still around to lend a hand, that Apple had lost touch with the founder's vision, and that if Jobs were alive, Tuesday's new iPhones launch would have been quite different. Check out a few of the visceral responses from fanboys on Twitter and why they believe Steve Jobs would have been none too happy about how things went down at the iPhones launch today.
