iPhone 5s outselling 5c 2-to-1 tip analysts as orders slashed

Apple's iPhone 5s is outselling the cheaper iPhone 5c by more than two to one, market watchers estimate, amid reports that the Cupertino firm has slashed production of the plastic-bodied model. Demand for the iPhone 5c, which replaced the iPhone 4S at the $99-on-contract price point, has fallen significantly short of Apple's expectations, it's claimed, and while the two new handsets set sales records in the opening weekend of availability, the bulk of that interest is believed to be around the iPhone 5s.

iPhone 5s and 5c accelerate death of the 3.5-inch screen

Apple's iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s launch may have set a new record for opening weekend sales, but they've also significantly hastened the death of the 3.5-inch iOS screen size, new research suggests.

Unity iOS 7 game controller support reinforces “optional” state

Seeing the Apple-made universal game controller support in iOS 7 was a healthy boost of confidence for game developers around the mobile universe earlier this year. For the folks at Unity, this meant they'd be able to release games that were working with a compatible support module that would be able to take full advantage of controllers in a way that all devices could work with - and Apple would support them in return.

Official iPhone 5c cases “fixed” with CaseCollage filler

Official iPhone 5c cases “fixed” with CaseCollage filler

If you've had your hands on the official Apple-made iPhone 5c cases with a real-deal iPhone 5c, you may have noticed an oddity on the backside - the word iPhone is covered up here and there by the uniform design of the case's grid of holes. This grid presents a bit of an oddity in Apple design as each part generally compliments the other - and thus steps forward the developers at Lunar Lincoln to save the day. They've created an app by the name of CaseCollage to make everything more than just OK - they've made the case a thing to behold by filling up all the holes with photos, symbols, colors, or otherwise entertaining bits and pieces of visual greatness.

iPhone 5c already seeing cuts as retailers hunt plastic sales [Updated]

Apple's iPhone 5c is already facing up to 50-percent price cuts, only weeks after going on sale, as retailers like Best Buy chase customers toward the mid-range plastic smartphone.

iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c now available from Virgin Mobile

Virgin Mobile made it known late last month that it would be offering the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on October 1, and a quick look at the carrier's website shows that everything has gone according to schedule. Pricing wasn't described at the time, however, leaving the topic open for speculation based on how the company priced the iPhone 5. Because of the lack of contract subsidization, buyers will be forking over a fair bit of cash, but less than Apple is charging.
