When Apple first launched the iPod, it came in one design and one flavor, but slowly over the years Apple introduced variants of the iPod, like the iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod touch and so on, and according to former Apple advertising expert, Ken Segall, the Cupertino could be looking to do the same thing with their iPhone brand in the near future. Segall’s reasoning is that because there isn’t much to change in upcoming versions of the iPhone, apart from size and hardware, he seems to think that variety is needed which is why he believes the iPhone could soon follow the path of the iPod.
Segall predicts that this could lead to products like a low-cost iPhone which has been rumored for a while now, a series of colorful iPhones that will give the user a choice beyond just black and white, which according to Segall will help make the phone “new” again, and lastly an iPhone that would rival devices like the Samsung Galaxy S4 where its large and vibrant display is one of its selling points. These are merely Segall’s opinion which may or may not come true, so make what you will of it, but what do you think?
