Apple today announced it has sold a record-breaking nine million new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models, just three days after the launch of the new iPhones on September 20. In addition, more than 200 million iOS devices are now running the completely redesigned iOS 7, making it the fastest software upgrade in history.

I won't rule that theory out, BUT:

It didn't bother Apple with the iPhone 3G/3GS and 4/4S that they looked the same. The 5S doesn't look like the 5 due to the finger reading home button and new colors.

The 5C looks different too and seems like a very happy phone, but if they really had wanted to make it a "budget" phone they should have included a budget price. You can get some good phones for less.

For iPhone 5 users I don't think a 5C would be an interesting upgrade, unlike the 5S. Also the 5S is the point from which they continue on to the next generation.

Maybe the 5C was the next iPhone until they figured out how to do the finger reading and they made the 5S without canceling the 5C. Then again the 5C would have been burned by the media if it was THE next iPhone.
