According to a report from the Apple Insider, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, said that his analysis of the iPhone 5C upholds the previous rumours claiming that the budget iPhone is Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) introduction of a mid-range device to the market, rather than the much rumoured low-end option. Also, according to the analyst, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is having the iPhone 4S as its entry-level iPhone.
