First, insiders think that the smaller screen iPhone is not so needful for consumers. people are not so resistible to the 4.7-inch iPhone. They prefer the 4-inch iPhone for they still use it. But if they shift to the 4.7-inch iPhone, they will find it is not so big and inconvenient as they thought. Speaking with data, 58% of respondents indicate they favor the 4.7-inch iPhone more.
The diversity of colors is an important selling point of iPhone 6c. However, insiders think consumers don't care the colors actually. This point is of no practical significance for users because lots of them use phone cases.
As for price, analysts think the price difference between iPhone 6s and 6c won’t be so attractive for consumers. Because the standard of Apple is too high, it is impossible for Apple to drop iPhone 6c’s price by a wide margin. By the way, the initial price of iPhone 5c is 549 US dollars.
