    Here's a small prediction. Now that Apple has created two new phones, it will continue to do this every year going forward. However, the company will maintain its tick-tock update schedule. The difference now is that next year, the flagship iPhone (currently the 5S), will get a tick (i.e., large update) and 5C will get a tock update, that is, a small(er) update. So, this year we got a brand-new iPhone 5C, and refined iPhone five in the S version. Next year, we will have a brand-new flagship iPhone, with a refined rather than new 5C update (5CS?). If this is the case, we should get a brand-new design every year from now on. Do you agree with this?

    Makes sense. Never thought about that.

    Or you could just wait until upgrade is available cause upgrading yearly is a pain considering the wait and constant searching on top of the fees. It's just not worth it. More or less it has been like this. It will depend on how well the 5c is doing.

    I think they would have been fine just releasing the 5s and ditch the 5c. Bigger issue is why is it they did not produce enough to meet or come close to demand on opening.

    Maybe, maybe not. I'm not so sure they will upgrade the low end phone every year. We will see.

    The 5C has a relatively good camera -- 8 MP -- many LTE bands on the antenna, and runs iOS 7 very well.

    Why couldn't it stand very well as the low-end iPhone for some time to come? They should get rid of the 4S next year -- reducing it to an 8 GB model was a bit of an insult. But the 5C could do well enough for a two-year run... to then be replaced by the 6C.

    If you're implying that we'll get a totally redesigned iPhone every year (like has been true every OTHER year with the existing devices), I don't agree with you at all.

    My prediction is that the C phones will come out every other year like the iPod Touches.

    Hmmm... Will it really be just 2 iPhones this year? There are some news floating around that Apple might release 2 sizes for the iPhone (the 4.7" & 5.7"). Though I don't think Apple will release more than 2 iPhones...
