Don’t Upgrade to iPhone 5C/5S, Apple iPhone 6 Is Just Around the Corner

Apple iPhone 5C
Apple’s budget smartphone, the iPhone 5C, is currently selling for $99 with a contract. Although you’re saving quite a bit of money by purchasing the 5C, we recommend waiting a few extra months if your contract is up and you’re looking for a cheaper smartphone.

Reasons to not upgrade to the iPhone 5C/5S right now

The iPhone 5C was a great addition to the iPhone lineup. It gave consumers a solid device with a 4 inch Retina display, an 8MP back camera, 1080p video recording, and an A6 chip. The phone came in a multitude of colors, and still felt sturdy, even being built out of plastic.

The next couple months are going to consist of multiple media events, from all different mobile companies releasing their newest devices, which will frame what comes to buyers in early 2015.

With that said, Apple’s having a massive event on September 9th, which will likely be when they release the iPhone 6. Even if you could care less for their newest smart device, it’s going to cause prices everywhere to change in favor of consumers on all Apple devices, just as has happened previously.

Every two years, Apple has released a complete remodel of their iPhone, which is going to happen this year to follow the pattern. Since this isn’t their “S” year, the new phone is going to be sporting plenty of new and exciting features, and even a complete redesign, as we’ve previously reported.

With the specs that have been rumored to be sported on the iPhone 6, it’s likely to knock the 5C out of the ballpark, considering the 5S is remarkably higher quality than the 5C as is.

The iPhone 5s has already been knocked down in price at Walmart to $99 permanently. It’s likely we’ll start seeing price slashes at other retailers, as well as after the big announcements that’ll be made by Apple on September 9th.

There’s no telling just how much the price will drop once the iPhone 6 is released, but it could possibly even end up being free with a contract, just as the iPhone 4 currently is.

This doesn’t just apply to iPhones though, it applies to devices as well. Once competitors see the release of the iPhone and start rolling out their new end-of-year devices, we’ll see some price drops in devices such as the Samsung Galaxy’s as well.

So, whether you’re looking for a new device, or to jump into the Apple pool, we definitely suggest waiting (unless it’s a necessity) to upgrade your device. Even then, try to find deals and discounts. There’s no sense in paying the full $99 for the contracted iPhone 5C when Walmart is offering the device at a steep discount.
