The closer the date of the announcement of the alleged iPhone 5C is getting closer, the fewer illusions that the phone will fall into the category of “budget” . Although, of course , everything is relative. When you consider that without a contract with the service provider iPhone 5 with 16 GB of memory to cost $650 , any lower price in the case of the iPhone 5C will seem an advantage.

Forecasts day that Apple will release an iPhone around the price range of $200 -$300, began to be born with a light hand of experts from Piper Jaffray, who have always been such a thought . The assumption was based on the fact that the Cupertino supposedly should be required to prepare a product that acts a counterweight to the dominance of cheap Android-smartphone . Meanwhile, some tangible evidence of the required policies do not exist.

As it turned out , iPhone 5C in the production costs are cheaper than their predecessors of only $50 , so a substantial margin for maneuver at the expense of Apple has – even more so that the rate of profit , and so reduced. Thus , in fact, the novelty will not apply to low-cost products – she will replace the current iPhone 5. As a result , iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and iPhone 4S stand on the position of the flagship , medium size and budget units.

According to industry analyst Samir Singh , iPhone 5C retail price will be set at around $449 . Earlier, an expert called by lowering the price to $50, but now it has corrected its forecast .

Singh said that third- quarter shipments of iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S might be roughly 5.2 and eight.four million copies within the final quarter of the 12 months, shipments will upward push to twenty-eight , and 18.7 million gadgets. After all, the top of the 2013th will probably be marked for the Apple implementation of the lovely a hundred and sixty millionth of smartphones.
