Would it be realistic to expect paid/free support for the 5C until 2017?

    I'm currently using a 4S on a three-year contract, and yesterday marked the end of two years. I figure at the end of the contract, or at the point when my 4S breaks down and it costs too much to fix, I'll buy the 5C instead since my uses are limited enough that despite moments of slowdown on my 4S running iOS 8, it's still very much usable for my needs.

    My question is, the 5C was released around the time the 5S was released. Can I expect to still be able to pick up the 5C when the 6S is released? Can I also expect Apple to service and support the 5C at that point and beyond, whether it is for free or for pay?

    I'd hazard a guess and say yeah....Even though the casing is different than the 5/5S the internals are essentially an iPhone 5...allot of common parts make a case for my guess.

    I don't think the 5C will be available after 6S launch.
