    Do you think the 'C' model phones will live on? Will there be more generations of them? Or was this a one time learning experience for Apple?

    My personal opinion is that they will not. But time will tell.

    All the teenie-boppers love the colors so I think they will be around for a while. IMO

    The younger generation and some older generation seem to like the different colors, I say yes they will be around, but not as popular as Apple would like selling wise

    Apple every years sells a iPhone for cheaper than its flagship. This C is cheaper to make than a 5 would be to sell for the $99 model. So I say yes they do.

    I'm guessing Apple is very pleased with the ration of 5s:5c sales. Having something lower cost helps pique interest and often it isn't hard to upsell. A little more money, a few advantages.

    I doubt it. Depending on the sales I suppose.

    I wonder how are they going to still keep the previous generation, once they move to a new design, which could mean we would never see the previous generation look which could be sacrificed for the C series...

    Wonder how they are going to work that out...

    I don't know it's hard to say. If they do increase the screen size this year I wonder how that will work. Will they give people a choice of screen sizes or will they offer the bigger screen as the flagship and then repackage the 5S as the 6C?

    My personal speculation would be a 3 tier approach when the 6 comes out. Simultaneously sell the 6 at the highest end, 5s midrange, and the 5c at the low end, probably free on contract. But of course no one knows what apple will do but apple but it is difficult to imagine a new c series phone. Would it be called the 5sc? Tho it is perfectly possible they may sell a 6c and get rid of the old aluminum iphones altogether. The 5 was only out for a year before being completely replaced for the 5c.

    I think it'll live on and catch on. It's a great, very solidly built device.

    A lot of people really seem to like them so as long as sales are solid I can't imagine why they would stop.

    I think so. Depends if they decide to make the bigger version the 6 and just release the smaller ones in different colors. I wouldn't mind seeing 3 different models and maybe the bigger screened ones being a pro model

    Actually no apple already stated that it will discontinue the 5c and actually bring back the iPhone 4 style with better components and a better chip for faster browsing. But I think if they change their minds the 5c will only have minor upgrades, and maybe a better mega pixel camera , nothing more!
