It has only been a couple of months since Apple's WWDC event saw wide-spread criticism from the unveiling of iOS 7, with many comparing the mobile OS to Windows phone and Android. Despite this, the Californian-based company had no issue dragging its reputation through the mud a second time when it unveiled the much hyped, iPhone 5C.
Apple's answer to a cheaper iPhone was the talking point of many technology rumour sites for the past few months with many accurately predicting the handset's bright range of colours, plastic body and slower processor. Once announced, Apple saw a barrage of criticism, with many people accusing them of copying Finnish handset manufacturer, Nokia. The comments claimed that Apple had copied Nokia's business model; that its cheaper handsets (like the Lumia 710) were given a variety of bright pastel colours while its higher end handsets (like the Lumia 925) were given more premium colour schemes.
