Apple Will Release iPhone 6S Mini In 2015
Apple has been working on a new 4-inch iPhone 6s Mini. This information was introduced be analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company. They stated that although the Apple company moved away from the 4-inch iPhone this year, but for the next 2015 this new iPhone model could be released.
Due to Arcuri’s statements in 2015 Apple may add to the current launched in September 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models the third 4-inch iPhone 6S mini. This new device would be similar to the iPhone 5s. But it will gain all features, an updated design with curved screen edges will be similar to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The rumors stated that the new 4-inch model could used as an alternative to the iPhone 5c that is currently sold by Apple. Although Arcuri suggests that the latest model will include “purpose-built low cost components” from Qualcomm to keep the price down.
For many years Apple’s smaller screen sizes models was an advantage over competitors. That was because the 4-inch form factor consumers to use the device easily with one hand. But the interest to larger displays has risen and Apple launched a larger screens this year, that gained the new a new “Reachability” feature to use in one hand.
The analyst has another idea the Apple is on their way to release a larger 12.9-inch iPad model this spring. The sales of iPad has gone down, but this new 12.9-inch model could change the situation in a reverse side. Arcuri suggests that Apple for the first release will launch from 15 to 20 million units of this larger iPad.
Arcuri’s track record on future Apple iPhone 6S mini and iPad is mixed, so we aren’t sure what to expect.
