    Experian, the global information services company, is out with new data indicating that the iPhone 5s has been a bigger catalyst for online searches and "digital excitement" than the iPhone 5c.

    Despite the long anticipation and demand for a cheaper iPhone, the iPhone 5c failed to generate the level of search activity seen for the iPhone 5s.

    During the week ending September 14th, the data shows, searches for iPhone 5s were 4 times more prevalent than searches for Apple's iPhone 5c. Interestingly, searches for the currently theoretical iPhone 6 were also popular, Experian reported Monday.

    In some cases people were looking to understand whether this release was for the iPhone 6 whereas others were looking for advice on whether to buy the 5c or 5s or hold out for the '6.'
    Lastly, searches for 'iPhone fingerprint,' which is arguably the "most innovative" difference between the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, were the most common feature-related search.

    Makes sense to me. Only thing you get with the 5C are different colors. Also noted its much heavier than the original 5 and 5S.

    That's because of it's built in search chip, DWL! I just tried this on my i5 vs my wife's i5S, and didn't see any difference.

    iPhone 3G - thus called because it had 3G radio...
    iPhone 3GS - much faster than 3G and the start of the "S" series
    iPhone 4 - next generation AND 4th phone
    iPhone 4S - much faster than the 4
    iPhone 5 - next true generation
    iPhone 5S - faster and better iPhone 5
    iPhone 6 - next generation

    It's not that hard...
    They're not going to call it iPhone 8, would not make sense to skip a number.
    Btw, not the only company to do this...
    Playstation 2
    Playstation 3
    Xbox 360
