Should we expect a 5SC next year?

They redesigned the 5 to the 5C to increase margin so they could sell it at $99 and be profitable, right? Thinking ahead to next year, when presumably the 6 will arrive, will they have to do a similar polycarbonate redesign for the 5S so they can sell it at $99 too?

I'd expect a 6 and 6C.

That wouldn't be consistent with what they have out now. The 5C is specs from a year ago. Next year's colored model should be the same specs as the 5S if they follow suit.

My guess would be a 5CS instead of a 5SC. I'd think they'd just improve the specs in the current design of the 5C instead of redesigning the 5S into a colored plastic case like they did with the 5.

My guess is "The New iPhone C" no numerical designation. That and different colors.
