Munster: Apple iPhone 5C could launch sans Siri
Munster says that some "software features" like Siri may be excluded from the low cost model. The Wall Street number cruncher forecasts that the iPhone 5C will end up retailing for $300. Apple is then expected to put the Apple iPhone 4S in mothballs and make the iPhone 5C its low end model. The analyst says that eliminating Siri on the low-cost model should be enough to differentiate the iPhone 5C from the iPhone 5S and prevent cannibalization of higher-end sales by the budget version of the phone.
As far as the new full-priced model is concerned, Munster sees a fingerprint scanner coming on the Apple iPhone 5S, but does not believe features like mobile payments will be ready for iOS 7 this year. Instead, he believes that the scanner will offer basic functions such as unlocking the phone. Securing payments using fingerprints won't occur until next year's iOS update, according to Munster. The long-time Wall Streeter expects a large-screened Apple iPhone and the Apple iWatch to come to market in the middle of next year.
