Rumours are constantly coming in about the much-vaunted iPhone 6s, but what we didn’t know about until now is the successor to the iPhone 5c: the iPhone 6c . Although a few months ago we were told that it would be Apple’s alternative for those who are still reluctant to buy a mobile with a screen larger than 4 inches, we hadn’t heard about it until today.
According to the latest rumors, it will be introduced along with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in September. Although it should have been launched earlier, as the 5c accuses its old age , Apple would have decided not to do it so that a “cheap” phone would not cannibalize the sales of its flagship 6 and 6 Plus.
The iPhone 6c, as we well imagined will be a rehash of the hardware of the iPhone 6 embedded in the body the size of an iPhone 5s, but without being of the plastic material that we criticize so much of the iPhone 5c. So we will have a 4-inch iPhone 6c, metal, and at a more affordable price than the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus that could be the rage this Christmas.
The most conservative warn us that Apple sometimes tests products or services that despite reaching a very advanced state of gestation, are never launched due to subsequent demands or analysis of the market. This iPhone 6c could be one of them and that the “c” family will definitely die with the iPhone 5c being removed from the shelves.
But we are confident that it will be launched, especially when we saw months ago a leak in its housing, which although still being designed in plastic, plans in Cupertino could have changed radically to convert the iPhone “c” range from “colors” to “compact” , since from now on it will be the small iPhone that we are so longing for the four-inch lovers and that we still resign ourselves to having the iPhone 5s.
