iPhone 5C may be pulled in 2015

Apple’s iPhone 5C was quite different from its usual offerings; it was more colourful, had mid-range specs, and was more affordable. However, sales of the device didn’t quite meet expectations. As a result, the iPhone 5C may be discontinued in 2015.

According to reports from Taiwan's Industrial and Commercial Times, Apple’s suppliers are to cease production on the iPhone 5C next year. This decision may not be entirely down to sales, though.

The iPhone 5C, unlike its high-end iPhone 5s counterpart, does not feature the TouchID sensor. This sensor looks set to be a big part of Apple’s plans for the future. It is present on both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and it is essential for Apple Pay.

This may not be the end of a colourful and affordable handset from Apple. But the big question is, will it announce a 6C or 7C to take the iPhone 5C’s place?
