With the iPhone 5c, what you ended up having was a (very) visual clue to others that you went out of your way to buy a cheaper iPhone. Right or wrong, that’s likely the first message being conveyed.

iPhone 5C/5S に対する反応が各人各様でオモシロい・・・

MG Siegler:

Now I’m left with a strange dilemma: the phone I want is basically the iPhone 5c body with the iPhone 5s internals. Luckily, something tells me that Apple will be selling such a device next year. Unfortunately, there will undoubtedly be a new state of the art iPhone by then as well. And I’m a sucker for the high end. Especially when it comes in gold.

And this predicament is the essence of why Apple sees lots and lots of green.

The slow-moving iPhone 5C just got even cheaper—at least in China

The slow-moving iPhone 5C just got even cheaper—at least in China | Quartz

It is little wonder then that Chinese retailers have taken to knocking down the price on the cheaper model. Online resellers are now offering the phone at 3699 yuan ($604), a hefty mark down from the listed price of 4888 yuan, reports the Chinese business publication Caijing. (That is still more expensive than in the US, where the phone retails for $550 without a contract.) Apple reported on Monday that it had sold 9 million iPhone 5S and 5C models combined in the first three days of its release. Analysts have been skeptical, attributing a large portion of sales to stock sold to shops but not to consumers.

ギークたちのレーダーにかかった iPhone 5C/5S、iOS 7 レビュー

John Gruber のおススメ: —

Anand Lal Shimpi [The iPhone 5s Review | AnandTech]

Copiously detailed and researched. A genuine pleasure to read. So glad Apple provided AnandTech with iPhone review units. As I concluded, the 5S is a performance and graphics powerhouse:

David Pogue [Yes, There’s a New iPhone. But That’s Not the Big News. |[]

Jim Dalrymple [Review: iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s | The Loop]

The whole front page of The Loop is chockablock with great iOS 7 links. I won’t bother duplicating them, just go to The Loop and load them into tabs from there.

Rene Ritchie [iOS 7 review | iMore]

No idea how anyone is getting any work done today — so much great stuff to read, so many updated apps to try.

Jim Dalrymple のおススメ: —

John Gruber [The iPhone 5S and 5C | Daring Fireball]

Two things that I thought were particularly interesting in John’s review: the part about innovation and the section on 64-bit. Definitely worth a read.

Anand Lal Shimpi [The iPhone 5s Review | AnandTech]

I don’t think there is anyone more qualified to do this type of high-end technical review.

Rene Ritchie [iOS 7 review | iMore]

Speak of busy, Rene Ritchie wrote almost 14,000 words on iOS 7.

For the “normals”, it’s still Walt Mossberg.

・John Gruber [The iPhone 5S and 5C | Daring Fireball]

For a little bit of fun, good analysis, and venturing a bit into the weeds, it’s John “in your fucking pocket”

・Anand Lal Shimpi [The iPhone 5s Review | AnandTech]

For hands-down the best technically detailed write up, it’s Anand Lal Shimpi.

Marco Arment のおススメ: —

Anand Lal Shimpi [The iPhone 5s Review | AnandTech]

The only 5s review I need to read, packed with tons of analysis of the A7.

John Gruber [The iPhone 5S and 5C | Daring Fireball]

OK, add one more. Fantastic review by John Gruber.

And his argument in the first footnote for capitalizing “5S” and “5C” has convinced me to stick with that convention.

John Gruber:

The iPhone 5S and 5C | Daring Fireball

“Can’t Innovate, My Ass”, Indeed

So what has Apple delivered with the iPhone 5S?

This is what innovation, real innovation, looks like. It’s like the Thomas Edison quote, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Innovation is missed by most people because it is so often incremental.

Jim Dalrymple:

Review: iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s | The Loop

Shortly after Apple’s iPhone event ended on September 10, I walked into a room to speak with Apple executives about the new devices. During that meeting, I was also given a green iPhone 5c and a gold iPhone 5s to review, both running iOS 7—I’ve been using those two phones for the last week.

Walt Mossberg:

A New Touch for iPhone | AllThingsD

My biggest disappointment is that there have been only minor improvements to the keyboard. Unlike in Android, Apple still bars you from substituting third-party keyboards with better auto-correction. The company says this is due to security worries.

Overall, however, the new iPhone 5s is a delight. Its hardware and software make it the best smartphone on the market.

David Pogue:

In Arrival of 2 iPhones, 3 Lessons |

LESSON 1 Apple may have set its own bar for innovation too high.

It’s a terrific phone. The price is right. It will sell like hot cakes; the new iPhones go on sale Friday. But just sheathing last year’s phone in shiny plastic isn’t a stunning advance.

LESSON 2 The smartphone is mature.

Focus instead on the silver lining: you can keep your current phone longer without feeling obsolete quite so soon.

LESSON 3 If we’re reaching a point of diminishing returns in hardware breakthroughs, the software breakthroughs are only just getting under way.

Anand Shimpi:

The iPhone 5s Review | AnandTech

Apple’s move to 64-bit proves it is not only committed to supporting its own microarchitectures in the mobile space, but also that it is being a good steward of the platform. Just like AMD had to do in the mid-2000s, Apple must plan ahead for the future of iOS and that’s exactly what it has done. The immediate upsides to moving to 64-bit today are increased performance across the board as well as some huge potential performance gains in certain FP and cryptographic workloads.

The iPhone 5c Review | AnandTech

Personally I’d prefer the iPhone 5s simply because of its more modern platform, even if I were recommending a device for someone else not as concerned with performance. Supporting the latest ISA (which will probably stick around for a while) and OpenGL ES 3.0 are both important if you’re going to be keeping your phone for a very long time and plan on using it for more than just the basic first party apps.

Apple throwing its hat into the multi-device race marks a very important change for the company. I’ve always believed that the smartphone space would end up looking a lot like the PC industry, or in Apple’s case, the Mac business. Apple presently offers a handful of Mac notebooks, and I see no reason why Apple will stop at two with the iPhone.
