Apple might still launch a cheaper iPhone for next Spring
We’ve spent the last few months handling conflicting rumors regarding a less expensive iPhone. On one hand we heard that Apple would launch an iPhone mini, and then other rumors claimed a successor to the iPhone 5c. We weren’t surprised on September 9 when we didn’t see an announcement since we heard it wouldn’t happen until next year, and today we hear more.
Analysts claim that Apple is still working on launching a less expensive iPhone for Spring 2015. There’s no clear argument or reason for this, except for the fact that Apple wants to launch a product that can serve emerging markets. This does poise an interesting change in perspective though, as it could mean that we won’t see this product launch in the current markets that Apple serves. This wouldn’t be the first case for this, as you might remember Apple launching an 8GB iPhone 5c for certain markets years ago, in addition to extending the iPhone 4 in other markets as well.
Sadly at this point it’s hard to predict if this will happen or not, but we’ll keep an eye.
