  • Apple Rumored to launch an 8 GB iPhone 5C this week


    Apple is rumored to be in the middle of planning the introduction of a new, 8 GB variant of the iPhone 5C, possibly as soon as this week. The rumored news could be a bid to turn around flagging sales of the plastic-backed device. News of the change first appeared in a purported internal email from the German wireless carrier, o2, which will list the handset for sale at €509 ($707), €60 under the current €569 ($791) cost of the 16-gigabyte model.

    There isn’t any word on what releasing such a device would have on the availability of the iPhone 4S, which is currently the only iPhone available in an 8 GB capacity and is often given away for free when consumers subscribe to a two-year service plan with a wireless carrier. Apple also sells an 8 GB version of the older iPhone 4 in developing markets such as China and India.

    When thinking about the situation, a move to replace the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 could make sense, as the devices still use Apple’s older dock connector technology and sport smaller, 3.5-inch displays rather than the 4-inchd display introduced with the iPhone 5. Dropping the iPhone 4S from the international lineup would put all current-generation iPhones on a common platform as the Cupertino California company gears up to introduce the so-called iPhone 6, which is rumored to ship with a larger display.

    For those of you who didn’t already know, sales of the iPhone 5C have reportedly fallen short of Apple’s internal estimates as consumers opt for the iPhone 5S instead. Cook admitted that demand for the iPhone 5C “turned out to be different than we thought” during the company’s last quarterly earnings call.

    We’ll have to wait and see if the rumors turn out to be true.

      I don't see many of these phones in public to be honest. I see 5S and Androids. If you are going to buy a new iPhone, I would think you would pay the extra $ for the best one.

      I'd have to agree. If you're going to be paying a premium for a device, you might as well pay that little extra for the best.

      To be honest I went to the apple store to buy the 5s first day it came out and they had sold out so I purchased the 5c, and a few months down the line I hated it and had to purchase the 5s loosing £300 from selling the 5c because it had devalued massively

      Apple should just lower the price of the 5c and call it a day. Bringing back 8 gigs to a new phone that started with 16 is going backwards. C'mon apple time to wake up your falling behind and going backwards.. Smh!!!
