If reports are true and the iPhone 5s is outselling the iPhone 5c by at least a 2 to 1 margin, are people really surprised by this? The iPhone 5s is the newest flagship device and has only been out for a few weeks now. I’d be willing to bet a lot of money that people purchasing the iPhone 5s are either upgrading from an iPhone 4s or an iPhone 5 (and paying more as a result of being out of the upgrade cycle.)
The iPhone 5c is basically the exact same device as the iPhone 5, only with a pretty candy-colored shell. It’s appeal is not for the bleeding-edge iPhone user that is drawn to the 64-bit processor, fingerprint sensor or increased camera capabilities. It’s meant for people that want or already like the iPhone, but don’t want to pay a premium for features they can live without. For these people, they don’t know or care about the difference in a 64-bit processor versus 32-bit, are perfectly fine unlocking their phones without their fingerprint and find the iPhone’s camera “good enough already.” These are also the same people that are going to buy the iPhone 5c when they are due for an upgrade or placed in some other situation where they need/want to purchase a new (or first-time) iPhone.
I believe that without a doubt, the iPhone 5c will be a huge success. Maybe not so much in China or other markets where it’s still a pricey device compared to its starting price of $99 in the USA, but they will sell millions upon millions of these devices.
