KIDS (TEENAGERS ESPECIALLY) WILL WANT THE NEW IPHONE 5C

Tomorrow (9/20/2013) Apple is releasing its new plastic iPhone 5C that comes in four exciting colors in addition to standard white. If your child has never asked for an iPhone before, chances are they soon will. You can forget about the conversation about whether they should have a cell phone at all, the new point of contention will be that they specifically want the 5C. Because they are colorful, cool, and their friends have one.

5C Colors

This new phone follows in the footsteps of the wildly popular iPod Touch, Nano, and Shuffle that also come in a variety of fun and very kid friendly colors. While the iPhone 5C may not be 100% targeted to kids, there is little doubt that the younger generation is going to be wanting one. That will include kids of VERY young ages who will see other kids getting them and want one too.

Many children have the iPod Touch which is basically an iPhone without the phone and payment plan. Depending on their age, they have grown up having one or more iPods and this new plastic 5C will fit right in as the next step up. Not only does it come in the bright colors you see in the picture above but Apple has very smartly designed cases you can buy that will add another color to the mix. These cases multiply the options and give the owner the ability to mix and match depending on their color preferences.

5C Cases

As I said above, I don’t think the iPhone 5C’s main target is kids, especially since the price is over $500 unsubsidized. However, we all know that many kids of all ages already own an iPhone of some kind and this is just going to add fuel to the fire. If you are a parent of a child over 8 or 9, get ready for the iPhone 5C conversation that you will inevitably have to have!
