    Default What if the 6C doesn't happen? Would you miss it?

    I was just sitting on the train and realised that more and more people seem to have grabbed a 5C lately. I really like to see them, they're bright and colourful and all, my 5C feels just great in the hand and I've grown really fond of it. Yet it seems like (if rumours are to be believed) this might be the first and last C-series release and as much as I appreciate the 'premium' line I would be sad to see them disappear again after just one generation.
    How do you guys feel about that? Would you mind not seeing a 6C released? Do you consider it dispensable or should Apple keep offering colourful phones in the future? If they decide to call it off, what are you going to do with your 5C? put it on the wall? ;-)

    I personally reckon that Apple has always played with bold and shiny colours in their products, therefore they should stick with it and not retract the idea after one short year. And from a business perspective I don't see young kids or older seniors paying the top price for a gorgeous aluminium phone that has TouchID and all that stuff... so in my mind it just makes sense to establish a C line. Oh and from the emotional perspective, looking at my smurf blue 5C, I can imagine I would miss the option to pick up the latest iPhone in a little more colour/playful.

    I think that there will be a 6C. It will have a 4 inch screen while the 6 will have a 4.7 inch screen. At least that's how I think it will be. I prefer a smaller screen, but you will get used to a bigger screen pretty quick and will imagine why you ever thought it was a bad idea. Same happened with the transition from the iPhone 4S to the iPhone 5.

    meh.

    If they don’t make a "6C", there will be something else... there almost always is.

    Then, maybe they'll release a 6c in the correct color 😛 ...Black.

    I'd feel a bit sad if they didn't. I also don't know if I'll move on to the glass and aluminum that I usually don't like the feel of. I'm pondering getting a 5s to get used to the feel...

    You could always put it in a plastic case.

    That would help. The 5c feels better because it's heavier. I think a decently bulky cover would help. I'm really fond of wallet cases though. I'm still debating though, using that I'm running out of space on my 16GB, to get the 32GB 5s. This is really a harder decision than getting my 5c was. The 5c was the first iPhone I didn't seriously abhor from first sight....

    My daughter loves her 5C... whether or not Apple continues the trend in the coming year, I’m sure there will be a device and, possibly, a set of cases or accessories to fill the space carved out by the 5C if there’s no 6C.

    Yeah that's true. I'll definitely be on board for the smallest screen 6(x). Perhaps 5s. What color does your daughter have?

    She got the white one. And the green and the blue "connect four" cases...

    I have the blue and black covers like that. I'd never heard them called connect four cases, haha. It's fitting though.

    I still wish they'd released black too.
    I hope they bring back a darker black variant for the 6....

    Nope I wouldn't miss it. I was disappointed when they replaced the iphone 5 with that thing to be honest

    I thought they replaced the iPhone 5 with the iPhone 5S.

    Don't get me wrong I think the 5c is a great device, just to remake the 5 into a plastic 5 I didn't much care for. I liked the aluminum body much better

    I think Apple should use the 5C colors on the next iPhone if there is no 6C. The aluminum and glass would be different colors and I think it would look so cool.

    I honestly don't get people that say the 5C is just a repackaged 5....I've had both and currently carry a white 5C, and I can tell differences however small they are. The pics ARE just a touch better, and as I've said in another thread, the call quality is a step up from the 5, at least to these ears. I would miss the 6C, as a consumer, having more options means everybody wins. Not everybody prefers metal bodies.

    :-( No, I apologize, but we just can't allow that. The ghost of Steve Jobs said no too.

    Haha, but really, how cool would it be? The mock up I found says it all.

    I like the blue and white models too. The green just looks a bit too green in my opinion.

    Love the look and feel of the 5c. Would be sad if they discarded it.
