Apple says bye-bye to iPhone 5C due to low demand
Last year saw the announcement of two iPhones at one Apple event. Ever since Steve Jobs introduced the first generation iPhone (iPhone 2G), the Cupertino outfit is seen every September introducing a new version of the iconic device.
But then, in 2013; Two years after Jobs had died, Apple jumped into the bandwagon of plastic phones. The company thought that having a plastic-clad smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy S4 — which was very popular at that time — will rake in more money into it’s coffers. They were wrong when they introduced the iPhone 5S alongside the 5C.
Even though the iPhone 5C sold fairly well during the first few weeks, the rest of the story was uneventful. People preferred the 5S or the Apple iPhone 5 if they needed something cheaper, for that’s one of the reasons the 5C was made in the first place.
So, the news is that Apple plans to discontinue production of the iPhone 5C once this year comes to an end. This is quite normal as the company has made two best-selling smartphones since then — the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
The question is, will you buy an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus with a plastic body?
