While Apple will reveal a pair of next-generation iPhones at its September 9th event, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, don’t anticipate a new 4-inch “iPhone 6c” to appear on phase. Sources say that while Apple has been dealing with a brand-new 4-inch iPhone with the capabilities of in 2014’s iPhone 6, the device is not yet prepared to deliver.
Remarkably, Apple has also inside prototyped a brand-new, smaller sized iPhone with a 3.5-inch display screen, the same size of the iPhone’s screen from the first design in 2007 to the iPhone 4S in 2011, but it does not appear that the company prepares to progress with really releasing such a device.
In addition to not releasing a brand-new 4-inch phone, Apple presently plans to discontinue the iPhone 5c upon the release of the new 6S and 6S Plus, according to sources. Launched in fall 2013 along with the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5c has actually been controversial for its believed-to-be underwhelming sales numbers and aging function set.
Still available since today, the iPhone 5c includes the A6 chip presented with the iPhone 5 in 2012 in addition to older video cameras. But for those thinking about 4-inch iPhone screens, Apple will retain the iPhone 5s from 2013 and drop the on-contract rate to complimentary, per sources. It is possible that the 5c could stay on sale in some areas, much like the iPhone 4 stayed available in some budget-conscious nations following its U.S. discontinuation.
While Apple terminated the iPhone 5 upon the release of the iPhone 5s in 2013, Apple is anticipated to keep offering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus after the new 6S and 6S Plus designs start shipping. Naturally, the 2014 iPhones will certainly drop in price by $ 100 a piece, staggered by capability, at least for carriers offering prices just like in 2013’s. In summary, it appears that this fall’s brand-new iPhone line up will certainly be the following: the 5s as the entry-level device, the 6 and 6 Plus in the middle, and the new 6S and 6S Plus sitting at the top of the lineup.
The new phones will consist of quicker processors, 12-megapixel rear cams with 4K video support, Force Touch, more reliable cellular chips constructed by Qualcomm, and animated wallpapers.
