Apple's big day is coming very soon. September 10th is just around the corner and the speculation is that Apple will be unveiling at least one new model of the iPhone. On top of the reported Apple iPhone 5S announcement, there is rampant speculation that we will see a low-cost iPhone hit the market as well. The iPhone 5C has been highly speculated, almost moreso than the 5S, and some features are beginning to leak out. But, we are now beginning to hear what you expect to hear when you hear the word budget. We are beginning to hear about the features that won't come with the 5C.
In addition to being generally a less powerful phone, it is now being reported that the Apple iPhone 5C will ship without our favourite personal assistant Siri. The highly popular and increasingly useful Siri apparently won't make the trip into the architecture of the Apple iPhone 5C. While changes are expected to be minimal with the iPhone 5S outside of a possible fingerprint reader, it is expected that the 5C will be built cheaper not just inside, but outside as well. The plastic bodied phone is expected to situate itself above the iPhone 4S in the Apple hierarchy, replacing the very popular 4S as the second option for people looking to pick up an Apple smartphone. This is quite surprising considering that the iPhone 4 is still a very popular entry level smartphone that continues to sell in droves among younger audiences.
While it is always sad to see the retirement of a very popular phone like the Apple iPhone 4S, it was bound to happen. It is just sad to see it replaced by a phone that will admittedly be weaker and less supported by popular Apple software. Here's hoping that Apple doesn't take the wind out of the Apple iPhone 5C's sails before it hits the open sea.
