iPhone 5c to be Discontinued Next Year
Ashley Allen / 5 years ago
A report from Taiwan’s Industrial and Commercial Times has confirmed that Apple’s vibrant iPhone 5c is to be discontinued next year. The iPhone 5c is Apple’s budget iPhone model, with its plastic case, selling for around $299 in a series of vivid colours.
The move has been rumoured since earlier claims from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities, earlier this week. Kuo mentioned that the iPhone 4S is also to cease production next year.
The iPhone 5c is notable for not featuring a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a feature that is integral to Apple’s Pay plans, which may have contributed to the decision to abandon the handset.
