Apple's iPhone 5C May Not Feature Siri and Fingerprint Scanner

The analyst Gene Munster has a pet theory that is unlikely to actually be applied in practice. His advice is that there should be no Siri on the iPhone 5C in order to reduce chances of cannibalization. Fingerprint scanner will also debut solely on iPhone 5S.

Apple's iPhone 5C May Not Feature Siri and Fingerprint Scanner

Apple iPhone 5C May Not Feature Siri and Fingerprint Scanner

The iPhone 5C has become an enigma of sorts. All efforts are being made to reduce any possibility of this plastic mid-range handset from cannibalizing the selling rates of the iPhone 5 and 5S. Among the list of brilliant ideas is one in which its sales will be curtailed. Apple Incorporated can make it available in China and India. As for North America and Europe, they could be off limits. While such a step would make sense, it is not something Apple would be willing to undertake. The omission of Siri from 5C iPhones is what the analyst Gene Munster has in mind as the ideal solution to this conundrum. But is it feasible? It would most probably be an unlikely decision.  

The simple subtraction of Siri is a very rational step. It is one that would save Apple a lot of mind work and chagrin. But the fact that Siri is also a fundamental part of past models makes this move an irrational one too. The 4S, iPod Touch and iPad Mini all feature this vital component. Furthermore, Siri is a very popular function among Apple’s repertoire. It cannot be sacrificed so easily. It has become synonymous with the iPhone and cannot be struck off the list on a whimsical note. Meanwhile, Gene Munster’s reliability as an expert on these matters is not exactly the solid stuff that legends are made of. Some of his earlier predictions turned out to be bogus. And yet one never knows. He may be right this time around. We can only wait and see.
