Apple reshuffles its line up: Apple iPhone 5S, Apple iPhone 5C and Apple 4S

Apple reshuffles its line up: Apple iPhone 5S, Apple iPhone 5C and Apple 4S
With today's unveiling of two new Apple iPhone models, Apple has reshuffled its line up. Prior to today, the Apple iPhone 5 was on the top of the list, followed by the Apple iPhone 4S and the Apple iPhone 4 was free on contract, used as an incentive by carriers. With the new models launching on September 20th, the new line up will feature the Apple iPhone 5S at the top, priced at $199 on contract for the 16GB variant, $299 for 32GB and $399 for 64GB. Despite earlier rumors, there apparently is no 128GB model

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 agree that Apple\'s greedy and it saves the best features for the latest models. But how the hell are you getting only 3 hours on your phone?

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.

"I guess Apple likes telling its consumers what they need rather than truly listening to them." This is what I was referring to.

The 64 bit is 100% gimmick and has no gains because its only using 2GB of ram. I twill be useful in 5 years when they finally make an iphone with more 4gb of ram.

Oh. Well, thanks for that tidbit. Maybe it'll actually be useful on an iPad in the future but then again, it would undermine the macbook airs.

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.

Correction: ALL Lumia models in one quarter alone.

If there was one day I knew you would comment on this site, it was today. What are your thoughts on the iPhone 5S and 5C?

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.

You can tell a person\'s stupidity based on their smartphone choice? That\'s awesome bro. What\'s next? Telling someone they are dumb because they bought a Toyota instead of a Kia?

They're your colleagues, if they're all stupid you're probably just as dumb.

$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?

I see no innovation here. Beside of that, prepare to plug your phone every 3 hours...

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.

i want to ask a question that i think i know the answer for, what does that mean for the resale value of my iPhone 5? since i will DEFINITELY be switching to Android (most likely the upcoming Nexus), i need to know how much money will i be able to get out of it.
