Apple might not release an iPhone 6C after all

56 sec read

Unfortunately for those of you who’ve been wanting to get their hands on a new iPhone but don’t have enough money to do so, the low-cost version of the iPhone 6 that Apple was rumored to be working on has been scrapped. Referred to as the iPhone 6C, the device was supposed to come with a traditional 4-inch screen and weaker specs than the iPhone 6, but all traces of the smartphone have disappeared, which has led many to believe that Apple has dropped the project. 

Apple once considered making a new version of the iPhone 6 with a 4-inch screen, according to Timothy Arcuri, an analyst with Cowen and Company. Information Arcuri has gathered from sources as well as supply chain research indicated that Apple was all set to produce what he referred to as an “iPhone 6-looking version of the iPhone 5C.” It would look and feel just like the iPhone 6, and it would run on the same internal components as Apple’s current flagship. But, it would come with a 4-inch screen just like Apple’s previous iPhones. The idea would be to offer another low-cost option for those who wanted a new iPhone but didn’t want to splurge on Apple’s next model, which is expected to be called the iPhone 6S. Arcuri said he had seen evidence of this smaller iPhone 6, which he referred to as the iPhone 6C, in Apple’s supply chain from January through March. But now, traces of the phone have disappeared. Arcuri speculates as to why Apple could have halted or killed off the project.
