Here's the problem ... what does the plastic case get them?    They had to redesign a phone that people are going to put in a case anyway. So the whole color thing is ridiculous. The very fact Apple is selling a case for a phone that is being marketed based on its case color is ridiculous. If it were the bezel that was colored then maybe there would some rationale here for what they did. But it's not. Why not just keep making the previous year model and release a brand...
Can't wait to see how well this sells. For the first time, people who opt for the cheap iPhone will be singled out by design. "Can't afford the 5S?" Says the elitist Apple user. For the first time, there will be two obvious classes of Apple users. Those who can afford the best, and those who can't. Or so some critics point out.
Just read an article on NPR how the color cases could potentially create a divide between high end iPhone users and low-end. If you buy the 4S, people don't know if you bought it 2 years ago for full price or the new one for free. The new color phones broadcast to everyone that you bought the cheap phone no matter when you bought it. If Apple further differentiates them next year with the free model,it could become the really cheap phone, the cheap phone, and the real...
I'm really happy the 4/S was not eliminated. I don't like the larger 4" phone, and prefer a smaller form factor.    Is it possible that Apple might repackage the 4/S smaller screen size into a smaller 5c package next year? If developers have to support the 4/S screen size for another year of actual sales (possibly two for the 4S in China), and presumably an additional year after iOS 8 comes out, then clearly screen size is not as big a deal as some think? Either way,...
Nope. But it looks that way to those unfamiliar with Apple's past. The iPhone's been around since '07, yet despite colored iPods, they didn't do a phone, even when they did the 3G/S in plastic.  Nokia differentiated their phone from all the others by adding color. Copied from Apple's other product lines? Possibly. But nevertheless it made them distinct in the marketplace. Apple really underwhelmed here. Under the hood the 5c is engineered way beyond the competition. But on...
Seems like the common black faceplate was a mistake. If they're going to do colors, might as well make it a solid color block. A least offer the choice of a white faceplate. At least that way you could put a colored screen protector over it and effectively change it. Because once you put a case on these things the color is pointless. Does Apple think no one will buy a case? And their own design seems to imply a cheese-grater effect allows customers to enjoy the beauty of...
So much for ENVIROMENTALLY FRIENDLY. Don't see this being easily recycled. Well at least the landfills will be colorful.
Maybe that explains what looks like a desperate "we're out of ideas ... Lets trot out the lollipop color offerings that made the iMac great and see if that works again"
Surely, with a new 8GB configuration, they will update to lightning connector? I don't see them keeping the 30-pin connector for legacy customers ... Just one more excuse to not buy current products.
If Tim Cook is smart, he'll introduce the 5C as "c is for color, china and cheap" and take the wind out of the competitions sails right off the bat. Own it.
