If it wasn't for the 5c, this year would been (w/ contract) iPhone 5s - $199, $299, $399 iPhone 5 - $99 iPhone 4s - free 2014 iPhone 6 - $199, $299, $399 iPhone ? - $99 iPhone 5 - free It would been the iPhone 5s. With the new plastic back design, will Apple need to jam the 5s guts into the 5c body?
