Sales of 5C are obviously below Apple's expectations.
We don't know if that's true.
Hey, you disproved your own point! Thanks. Saves time.
…has advertised the device exclusively…
Are you pretending they haven’t advertised the 5S? Are you honestly pretending that?
I agree that the 5Cs current sales performance is probably disappointing to Apple.
You need to agree that you don’t have the first effing clue what the device was supposed to be.

Because that’s not what the phone is supposed to be. Because it has nothing to do with price.
Because the 5C is last year’s phone and was never intended to get modern hardware.

What’s more likely: some guy on some website is right regarding a product about whose internal plans he knows nothing or THE MOST SUCCESSFUL COMPANY IN MODERN HISTORY is right regarding a product they created from scratch and whose internal plans they know intimately?
Not only have you never held an iPhone 5C, I’m convinced you’re also legally blind.
The colors are too "easter egg".
The 5s is marketed toward China.
The price point for a 5c is still unaffordable for most in China.
Explains why they’re buying all three models, huh.
