Apple has finally realised that “ Premium segment which it has been addressing so far has matured and its at the end of he product life cycle . In a suprise move Apple is set to reinvent itself as it replaced the iPhone 5 with two new smartphones the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. This replacement in effect means that Apple will not produce iPhone 5 anymore, and will sell only the stock that is already available with retailers in the market.
Phone 5S - Available in silver, gold and space grey, iPhone 5s features an A7 chip, a Touch ID fingerprint identity sensor, ultra-fast wireless, an iSight camera with a larger 8MP sensor and iOS 7.
iPhone 5C - Available in green, blue, yellow, pink and white, iPhone 5c features an A6 chip, ultra-fast wireless, an 8MP iSight camera and iOS 7.
iPhone 4S - Available in black and white, iPhone 4s features an A5 chip, an 8MP iSight camera and Siri, the intelligent assistant you control with your voice.
iPhone 5S - 16GB, 32GB or 64GB
iPhone 5C - 16GB or 32GB
iPhone 4S - 8GB
In the US, where a 16GB version can be bought at $99 with a two-year contract, it is a steal. But the unlocked price of the phone even there is $549. For India, this means the price is not going to be less than Rs.35,000 at present US Dollar rates, unless Apple decided to discount it here for a larger market share. So much for the phone taking on the Google Nexus and the mid-range Lumias.
