Iphone's cheaper cousin is now becoming more of a joke! The iphone 5C which was launched with a tag line 'Cheap' and was part of company's idea to reach more people using which otherwise is considered a premium choice. But the catch itself came as a big joke as the phone was priced higher or close to the older iphone5, which packed almost similar engine under the hood and an aluminum body outside.
Although reports suggest that Apple still backs up iphone 5C with the 'Colorful' tag in its advertisements. The iphone ads alone has cost the company a whooping $333.4 Million. Customers haven’t yet been persuaded by the ads because the phone shares many of the same components and features as iPhone 5, which was introduced in September 2012, said Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray Cos. in Minneapolis.
With these debates on, Apple has decided not to stop with iphones and is planning to launch the next ipad on October 22nd event at San Francisco. It is widely rumored that Apple will officially announce the new iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 with hardware upgrade, new processors and cameras.
Last year, the company used its October event to introduce two new tablets — the fourth-generation iPad and the iPad mini.
