So I'm rematching the September 2013 keynote of the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s launch, and one thing just popped into my head: why was there a 5c? I know one argument was the attempt to make the iPhone 5s look better. If this was the case though, why wasn't the iPhone 6 replaced with a plastic 6c to make the 6s look better? Another argument is that it allowed Apple to offer a cheaper iPhone, but the iPhone SE proves that an iPhone can be up to high standards and still be a lower price. So realistically, what was the point of the iPhone 5c? Was it to just try something new? Was it the start of a business model they decided to cancel? I'm genuinely curious what everyone's thoughts are on this.
