Apple Highlighting iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c Reviews by Tech and Mainstream Press

Apple today added a new page to its website featuring reviews of the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c from a number of prominent publications and sites. Carrying the tagline "It seems we've given people a lot to talk about," the review page is currently being featured on Apple's main iPhone page.

The feature page contains quotes from and links to reviews from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Time, CNET, USA Today, Esquire, Engadget, Daring Fireball, AnandTech, and TechCrunch. Most of the quoted and linked reviews cover the iPhone 5s, although several address the lower-cost iPhone 5c as well.

Most of those reviews for the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were published on Tuesday, September 17, several days before the devices launched to the public. Apple introduced the devices at a September 10 media event, and provided review units to several publications in advance of the public release, allowing them to publish their reviews in a coordinated release late on the 17th.

Where are the naysayers now?

Apple would never produce a gold one.
Apple will never produce a plastic one.
Apple would never come out with those colors.
Apple priced the 5c too much.
Apple needs a larger screen.
Apple cannot innovate.
Apple is doomed.

and $100 cheaper it would have been "The ONLY Smartphone" because it OWNS the market... too bad they priced it like an iPhone LISA

None of glorious reviews matter because all of those "news sources" are in Apple's pocket.

It's great they are getting positive feedback, despite this being a low key update for those wanting bigger screens, and other more eye candy features to be added. Will have to wait for 2014 to see what Apple does.

Just wished Apple would have built more of these units before the official launch. Some stores only receiving small amounts of stock, only once this week is quite poor. Hard for customers to be amped about the amazing products, if they can't get their hands on them.


Well, they sold them as quickly as they could make them. It was the same last year. There's only so many they can make at a time. I'm sure they'd rather have twice as many on hand to strike while the iron is hot.

I dont like that one of the quotes they have chosen claims the iphone had the best camera out of all phones, when that is objectively wrong.

9 million sold within 3 days?! Even Android fans have got to recognized that feat for what it is: amazing!!! :apple:


Batman and Robin grossed $238m back in 1997, and that was a heap of ****. Maybe it speaks volumes about the customers more than the product.

Sales =/= great product

The 5S and 5C are variants of the 5, with little that's game-changing. I've no doubt it's not bad, but there's no need to start wetting your panties.
