Why Apple’s New iPhone 5C Fails?

In a way, the problems faced by Apple are not real problems. The market segmentation issues for the iPhones 5S and 5C can be resolved provided Apple acts in unison with what lies in its long-time interests. It all amounts to consumer choice which is a very tenacious thing. The flagship iPhone 5S is selling like crazy while the plastic version (5C) is facing dwindling sales. So it is a tragicomic harvest that Apple seems to have gotten in its share. 

The steps taken by it to offset this mismatch in sales include decreasing 5C production by 35%. And manufacturing of the iPhone 5S has been stepped up by 75%. The fact of the matter is that some consumers want to pay more for one device while others choose to pay less for the other gadget.

Apple seems to have miscalculated a little regarding its products especially as far as supply and demand were concerned. What is getting harder and harder for a company like Apple to swallow is the failure of the iPhone 5C. In fact, the flop nature of this iPhone resembles the dismal career of Microsoft’s RT Surface Tablet.

Such a move would appear to be an effort to keep up with the competiti ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
