iPhone 5c not selling as well as expected

When Apple launched the iPhone 5c, it was promoted as the “unapologetically plastic” colorful and playful version of the iPhone 5. The problem was, it had been built up in rumors for most of 2013 as a cheap/budget iPhone, and part of that mentality seems to have crept in. For a “cheap” phone, it’s still expensive.
