Apple is known for its premium Smartphones but last year the company tried its luck with a mid range Smartphone for those who do not want to spend so much money on devices. This Smartphone was referred to as the iPhone 5C.
The iPhone 5C was not received well in the market as most Apple fans thought it was not a must have device while non Apple fans claimed that they had better options for the same price the iPhone 5C was retailing at. This in the end led to low sales figures for Apple and the company even revealed that the sales figures did not meet expectations it had set.
There are many reasons why the iPhone 5C was not that successful but one of the main ones is because it looked cheap for its price. Most people were not willing to spend a lot of money on this device.
With the low sales figures, it looks like Apple is finally admitting defeat as the company will stop production of the iPhone 5C by mid 2015. This is not a big surprise as we had seen it coming ever since the phone was officially announced.
The new report about the iPhone 5C comes from the Taiwan’s Industrial and Commercial Times that claims that Apple wants to focus on products that are adding value to the company.
