Apple Stock News: 4″ iPhone 6C Rumors Return

The latest rumors surrounding Apple claim that the world’s largest company is planning on releasing three new iPhone models during its annual refresh cycle in the second half of the year. One of these iPhones will have a 4″ display, just like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s had. This model will be an entry-level product, and will placate some longtime users who preferred the smaller screen compared to the much larger displays of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Along with the new iPhone 6C, Apple will also release updates to the two iPhone 6’s with the usual S designation. These updates usually include evolutionary changes like processor speed bumps, and the new models with 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays will run on an unannounced A9 chip. The iPhone 6C will still run on the current A8 chip, while all models will have the Touch ID fingerprint recognition and NFC support for Apple Pay.

Rumors of a 4″ display first surfaced in December, when reports mentioned that the C model would include purpose-built components to alleviate manufacturing costs. A possible update for the new models is they could include Apple’s new Force Touch technology, which Apple is also introducing with its newest MacBooks. On the software front, Apple is working on a massive stability release that will squash bugs, fix problems, and optimize performance.
