Apple to Stop iPhone 5c Production in 2015?

A new report from Taiwan's Industrial and Commercial Times says that Apple will discontinue the iPhone 5c next year, notes MacRumors.

Production of the handset is said to be stopping in the middle of the year, as Apple suppliers Wistron and Foxconn will look to wind down production of the device.

Notably, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently predicted that Apple will eventually discontinue the iPhone 5c and iPhone 4S models to streamline its product offerings. Apple is also expected to unveil new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch devices next year moving the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to mid-tier offerings and the iPhone 5s to the bottom of its lineup. Along with iPad updates, that would give Apple an all Touch ID-equipped lineup, helping its Apple Pay initiative.

Will you be sorry to see the colorful iPhone 5c go? Should Apple introduce a new device with more color options? Let us know what you think in the comments!

Stupid enough not even aware about their own accessory market, If you want to add color to your iPhone, your case options are nearly limitless.

Gullible enough to outsmart himself over something he can't accept that outsold s(hit) 5 for a good cause. If you want color, why waste money on buying a case when you spend less for a color styled phone?

they should actually stop iPad Mini 1st generation rather than this. tried out the display demo one with iOS 8.1, and it lags far worse than laggy Android tablets.

It's a great entry level device, durable and easy to service and repair. Surprised they never offered a black one like the 3G / 3GS of yor.

I often wondered why they didn't make a black one and I realised it was probably because the target market was the younger people. If they produced a black one, that could potentially be purchased by those people who otherwise would have purchased the more expensive 5s.
