The idea of an iPhone mini launching along side the iPhone 6s has been a polarizing topic lately. Some sources claim it will happen, and other say the project was ditched back in March in order to not cannibalize the iPhone 6. What we do know is that sales of the iPhone 5s prove that the world still wants a small iPhone, and it seems Apple will deliver.
Unnamed sources from the semiconductor industry argue that Apple will launch a successor to the iPhone 5c in Q2/2016. We’re not sure if this iPhone 6c will follow the polycarbonate design of the iPhone 5c, or aluminum design of the iPhone 5s, but we do get some info on its internals. The source claims that the device might use the FinFET chipsets manufactured by both TSMC and Samsung, and suing their 16nm and 14nm technology respectively.
Apple is not famous for making separate iPhone announcements, but given the company’s decline in sales every quarter that Samsung launches a new Galaxy, a WWDC iPhone announcement would be rather timely.
