Apple released iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S and both can be ordered this month. iPhone 5C can be ordered after September 13 from Apple store. But why the Apple iPhone 5C when there is iPhone 5S? Because Apple wants to serve even more customers. Tim Cook said that the business has become so large that Apple is replacing iPhone 5 with iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S and they have kept the iPhone 4. They updated the iPhone 5 into iPhone 5S and introduced a low-cost iPhone 5C because of current demanding market. iPhone 5C will help Apple to attract a wider range of consumers because the broader the price range you can present to the market, the more people you are going to get.

iPhone 5C is the low-cost iPhone and it is cheaper than the iPhone 5S. For the fun part, some sources claim that ‘C’ in the iPhone 5C is for ‘China’ (where the phone is manufactured). Some say that its for ‘Color’ as it comes in 5 colors. Some even say that it stands for ‘cheap’ according to a parody on YouTube.

But we know for sure that the new iPhone 5 is available in two flavors and iPhone 5C is low-cost iPhone, affordable for everybody. The iPhone 5C has the same physical dimension as the old iPhone 5 and the new iPhone 5S, but it’s made of soft silicon rubber rather than anodized aluminum. The iPhone 5C comes in the blue, green, yellow, pink and white colors.

iPhone 5C has got:

  • iOS 7
  • 5 Colors
  • 4-inch retina display
  • Lightning connector
  • A6 chip
  • Steel-reinforced structure
  • Slightly larger battery than the iPhone 5
  • 8-megapixel iSight camera (with 3x video zoom)
  • New Facetime HD camera
  • Supports more LTE bands than any other smartphone in the world

Consumers take their budget into consideration while purchasing a smart phone. Because of that Apple have been offering iPhone in different prices for different memory sizes. That helped Apple sell more iPhones along the way but now really low-cost smart phones were manufactured and shipped from China to all over the world that caught a lot of attention from users who were not quality conscious and just wanted a smart phone.

Offering a low-budget iPhone 5C seems necessary under the current competitive situation. This move by Apple seems mandatory that will definitely encourage more users to choose iPhone rather than any China made low quality smart phone.

The iPhone 5C will sell for $99 in the United States for a 16GB model and $199 for a 32GB model. Pre-orders for iPhone 5C start on September 13 and the iPhone 5C will go on sale on September 20 in the United States, China, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore and the United Kingdom. By December, hopefully, the iPhone 5C will be available in over 100 countries and on 270 carriers.
