So we guess it’s not really a secret that Apple will most likely be introducing the iPhone 6 at their event which will be held on the 9th of September. However could Apple be unveiling both the 4.7-inch iPhone and the 5.5-inch iPhone? Well according to a recent report from Chinese website, IT168 Mobile (via Cult of Mac), the latter iPhone 6 will not be making an appearance.
They claim that Apple will only announce the 4.7-inch model and will most likely be introducing an 8GB iPhone 5s which is meant to replace the iPhone 5c as the more “affordable” model in the iPhone lineup. Now given that IT168 Mobile doesn’t really have a track record when it comes to Apple rumors, we’re not sure what to make of their claims.
However as is with the case with rumors, you should probably take it with a grain of salt for now. It would be odd if Apple were to announce the 5.5-inch model at a later date because it does seem like a quick and easy way to get customers angry at you. Now we have heard rumors that the 5.5-inch iPhone could be delayed due to production issues.
At the same time we guess it would make sense for Apple to announce the phone first and ramp up production with a slightly later release, kind of like what they did with the new Mac Pro. In any case we guess we’ll learn more on the 9th of September so if you were eyeing the 5.5-inch iPhone, check back with us then to see if there are any additional details to be had!
