If you are looking for why apple failed for iPhone 5c sale and productivity, then you are on the right post. here you can get to know the basics for why apple fails in iPhone 5c.

If you think back to 2012 and the iPhone 5 days, Apple was in solid but delicate shape. CEO Steve Jobs had passed away the year before, the iPhone 4s had whimpered its way into the market, and iPhone sales were improving, but not fast enough. As Tim Cook took over as CEO, analysts and critics were haranguing the company to hurry up and release two different but necessary types of iPhones: bigger ones, and cheaper ones.

Though the 'c' in 5c didn't stand for cheap, it’s hard to talk around the fact that the iPhone 5c was, in fact, positioned as cheaper alternative to the iPhone 5s.

I’m sure a few people will disagree with me here, but I always thought the colors Apple chose for the 5c were horrible. In short order they were pastel, muted, and not really all that appealing.

Lime green? Canary yellow? Really, Apple? yack 🥴🥴

On his blog, Segall says: Clearly plastic was a big part of the iPhone 5c strategy, Segall writes in his blog. The launch ad was entitled Plastic Perfected.
The launch video featured Jony I’ve explaining that iPhone 5c was ‘unapologetically plastic.’ There was a strategic plan to head off the potential negative by boldly proclaiming it as a positive… Unfortunately for Apple, creativity can be a double-edged sword. The ‘unapologetically plastic’ line in the product video was so interesting and memorable, it got played back over and over in articles about the lackluster demand for iPhone 5c. Not exactly what Apple intended.

“Steve Jobs was right,” he explains. “Apple is a company that doesn’t do ‘cheap.’ It makes products for people who care about design, simplicity, quality and a great experience — and are willing to pay more for these things. For Apple to compromise in any of these areas would be a violation of the Prime Directive.”

And one more important thing to know that the plastic color combination was very dirty of apple. that’s why lots of people ignore to buy iPhone 5c. And recently I have a search that Apple stops the support for iPhone 5c handset. Even they are not providing the option for updating its iOS version. And for your information iPhone 5c only support up to iOS 10.8.4. Even nowadays lot’s iOS application having limitation minimum iOS version should be iOS 11. So there are lots of things to know about that. But I am strongly recommended that do not buy this phone from anywhere. it's a waste of money.
