Apple reshuffles its line up: Apple iPhone 5S, Apple iPhone 5C and Apple 4S
posted by Alan F. / Sep 10, 2013, 1:49 PM
Despite all the talk about the Apple iPhone 5C being a low-end option for Apple iPhone buyers, the truth is that this model replaces the Apple iPhone 5 which is exactly what Gene Munster predicted last month. The specs are close with the Apple iPhone 5C carrying a better battery and an updated front-facing snapper. The Apple iPhone 5C is $99 on contract for 16GB and $199 for 32GB.
Replacing the Apple iPhone 4 at the low-end of the iPhone range is the Apple iPhone 4S. That means that Siri will be available for those who pick up the phone for free as an incentive to sign a two-year contract with a carrier.
Apple has certainly strengthened its line up which now contains two models with 4 inch screens, and all three phones offer voice activated personal assistant Siri. Now Apple needs to see if this new line up can knock the ball out of the park.

Never buying iPhone ever again already regret buying iPhone 4S (battery last 3 hours). Apple= Greedy. always seeking money never put all features in iPhone and always fooling people with 1 quote \"twice as fast\". The game is over Apple. For a Fact Nexus 5 is going to take over the entire Smartphone market now.

I'm just horribly mad that the iPhone 5s has a 64 bit capable CPU but only 16 gigs of storage. I mean what kinda sh!t is that. And I wish they could have given it a 4.3 inch screen with a 960 x 1720 resolution bit that might be wishful thinking. I guess Apple likes telling its consumers what they need rather than truly listening to them.

Apple iPhone 5S & 5C is a HUGE FLOP!!! Nokia Lumia 1520 is going to destroy the market!!

The iPhone 5C alone will dominate the 1520 in terms of sales so technically it isn't a flop. Take your fanboyism out of here.

I'll give it 2 months and this phone will be totally outdated. I'll still sell a shhh ton at my work because, well, lets face it.. stupid people practically grow on trees. I'll wait for the 6.

$128 GB model isn't a surprise, I expect that to be a special order item due to the pricing. What does surprise me is how little of information on the 5C was offered, and why would anyone buy that when the 4S is available?

Why in the heck would you buy a 5C over a 5? The thing is ugly! At least with a 5 it looks premium and can pass casually for a 5S since, well most people don't know the difference between the two anyway.

What a flop for Apple today...With competition like the Moto X, HTC One, G2, GS4 and Note 3, I would have been embarrassed to be on stage presenting this phone in 2013. Other than gold in color, nothing is new for the iphone..oh the little finger scanner...I forgot.
