Over 3 million units of the iPhone 5c remain with Apple
The stockpile of Apple's 5c has now reached over 3 million units which is enough to show that this version was certainly not a hot seller. Pegatron, the manufacturer of this 5c, has 2 million units of the phone while the others remain in retail stores waiting to be taken away by someone. There is no doubt about the fact that Apple had a record breaking quarter but even this didnt help the 5c; its sales couldnt even reach closer to the sales of the 5s.
Many are of the view that the 5c had been priced in such a way which pushed customers towards the 5s. They were getting only a $100 of savings by getting this phone with less than stellar tech specs and a far inferior body. It was quite obvious that people would be attracted towards the 5s more. The future looks bleak for the Apple 5c since Apple is going to be having quite an eventful year ahead with so many announcements to make and loads coming their way. We are already hearing the rumors about the larger screen size on the upcoming iPhone 6 and then there is the rumored 5.5” Apple phablet and surely among all of this, we cant expect the 5c to do any better in the market.
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.
