Apple expected to launch 4-inch iPhone 6c in mid-2016

Apple’s new iPhone 6c, a smaller and more affordable alternative to its high-end smartphone lineup, will make its debut in mid-2016, according to a new report from IHS analyst Kevin Wang.

We’ve been hearing a lot about the iPhone 6c for a while, and many expected the device to get its grand unveiling alongside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus back in September. However, shortly before Apple’s big event, we were warned the device would be pushed back to 2016 instead.

Now Kevin Wang, director of technology research at IHS in China, says the iPhone 5c successor will finally make its debut in the middle of 2016. Wang doesn’t reveal any more information, other than a reassurance that the device will indeed carry a 4-inch screen.

Given that these iPhone 6c rumors just won’t die, it seems like there is certainly a possibility Apple is pondering a second stab at the more affordable C-series iPhone. But whether or not the device actually makes it to market seems a little unlikely now.

We recommend taking the latest report with a pinch of salt for now. Wang also told us back in August that the iPhone 6c would go on sale before the end of 2015, and that almost certainly isn’t going to happen.
