Apple in September, 2013 returned to their yearly cycle, introducing the iPhone 5S. It’s joined by the low-cost iPhone 5c, that will now serve to attract buyers interested in an iPhone, but looking for a smartphone that is more affordable. Apple’s upgrade scheduling has shifted from summer being the months that we can expect to see new iPhones to the fall. It started with the iPhone 4s and has followed that schedule ever since. Since the inception of the original iPhone in 2007, Apple has typically reserved major design changes for every other new iPhone release. The iPhone 3G, iPhone 4 and last year’s iPhone 5 offered vastly different hardware designs, going from plastic to glass to aluminum. People naturally have a higher excitement level during those years. Be it the new shape or materials used; out of the box, they have a vastly different look and feel. The years in between, we’ve seen Apple release ‘S’ models – focusing on improving the internal components. Despite what might be perceived as a higher interest level during model change years, sales of every new iPhone have always eclipsed the previous model. This year is on track for continuing that trend, with Apple announcing record sales of 9 million iPhones over the launch weekend. People are excited about the iPhone 5s, but should you be?
