Apple is set to release three new iPhones in 2015, according to a report by DigiTimes. The Taiwanese publication claims that the Cupertino company will unveil an updated 4-inch ‘iPhone 6C’ alongside updates to the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch form-factors introduced in 2014.
Apple will release three different iPhones in the second half of 2015, the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus and a 4-inch device currently being referred to as iPhone 6C, according to industry sources.
According to the report, the flagship 6S and 6S Plus will contain next-generation A9 processors with the 6C taking on the current-gen A8 chip. All models are said to sport Corning Gorilla Glass (not sapphire crystal) as well as Touch ID and NFC hardware, presumably enabling Apple Pay.
There’s no mention of the ‘iPhone 6C’ taking on the polycarbonate body of the iPhone 5c but, given its “C” moniker, it seems logical for that to be the case if the rumors prove true.
DigiTimes is well known for its hit and miss track record with Apple rumors, so it’s best to take this latest story lightly. However, fans of the 4-inch size can at least hold out some hope that their favorite form factor might get a spec boost.
