With the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) coming in a few months, it’s to be expected that rumors about the upcoming iPhone (or iPhones in this case) will start pouring in. According to a new report, Apple is set to release three new iPhone models within the 2nd half of 2015.
According to the Taiwanese tech publication Digitimes, Apple is planning to release three new iPhone models in 2015: iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and the iPhone 6C. The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are of course the upgraded models of the current latest iPhones but perhaps the most interesting part is the iPhone 6C, a new 4-inch iPhone.
The iPhone 6C, according to Digitimes, is likely to be manufactured by the company called Wistron. Both the iPhone 6S and 6S plus will still be assembled by Foxconn. All of these devices are said to come equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass. The 6S and 6S Plus will use the A9 chips while the 6C will use the A8 chips. However, in the event that Apple will not announce a new 4-inch iPhone, the company will likely offer the iPhone 5s for free with a 2-year contract.
Apple CEO Tim Cook related earlier this year that the larger iPhone models have brought the highest Android switch rate over the past three years. He believes that offering more sizing options will enable Apple to reach more customers.
Apple will announce new iPhone models in September. Both the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are rumored to come with 2GB of RAM and the brand-new Force Touch technology, which is already available to the Apple Watch, the new 13-inch MacBook Pros, and the new MacBook.
