“The business has become so large that this year we’re going to replace the iPhone 5…and we’re gonna replace it with not one, but two new designs.” These include the powerful iPhone 5S and the colorful iPhone 5C.

I think these are the perfect logical replacements for the iPhone 5, although the complete discontinuation of the iPhone 5 was a bit of a surprise. I also was expecting something with iPods, other than the “space gray” color added.
