Remember that rumor concerning Apple’s smaller iPhone? Well, sources (the New York Times, no less) have pointed towards Apple debunking the start of such a myth, although it cannot be denied that Apple did take some baby steps towards the feasibility of a cheaper model. Earlier on, Apple has developed a prototype of a smaller and cheaper iPhone, where it was 1/3 smaller than the iPhone 4. According to the Wall Street Journal, sources described the device as “about half the size of iPhone 4.” Some other people have also mentioned in passing that “a smaller device would not necessarily be much cheaper to manufacture and because it would be more difficult to operate.” A newer model might also throw a spanner in the works for developers as they might have to rewrite their apps.
