Apple Has Reportedly Scrapped Plans for a 4-inch iPhone 6c

Posted by · 18945 views · Translate
Apple has scrapped its plans for releasing a 4-inch iPhone, according to Timothy Arcuri, an analyst with Cowen and Company.

Arcuri claims to have seen evidence of what he refers to as an iPhone 6c. The device was apparently showing up in Apple's supply chain from January to March; however, traces of the phone have since disappeared.

The analyst believes that Apple may have killed the device to prevent cannibalization of its larger phones.

"I think one of the reasons is because the iPhone 6 has sold so well," Arcuri said. "And they said, 'Look, why would we want to cannibalize? If we came out with an iPhone 6C, we would essentially cannibalize a price-reduced iPhone 6.'"

Notably, back in April, popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that despite rumors of a 4-inch iPhone 6c this fall, it was likely that the smaller device wouldn't arrive until next year.

I prefer the size of the 6 but they should make the smaller 4" 6c for the people who liked that size. Keep the 3 sizes. To me 4" is too small and 6plus is too big but people have their preferences. Give us 3 size choices.

I just hope the 6s will be like that.
