iPhone 6C or iPhone 7C?
09 November 2015, Nirapad News:As rumors intensify that Apple will be releasing a smaller iPhone, it is still not clear whether it will be named the iPhone 6c or iPhone 7c.
Both options are still open to Apple, and the ultimate decision will depend on several factors. The first thing to take into consideration with regard to the iPhone 6c / iPhone 7c conundrum is precisely when Apple will release the device. Of course, the consumer electronics giant has yet to confirm whether or not it will even release this 4-inch handset, so we are left guessing in this department to a certain extent.
But an analyst with sources inside Apple has suggested this week that the corporation could be tempted to release this more affordable version of the iPhone 7 ahead of the two normal smartphone and phablet options. Since introducing the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has produced two separate iPhone units. It is suggested by KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that rather than extend this release schedule to three devices, Apple may release the 4-inch iPhone earlier in the year instead.
This would perhaps make sense from a production perspective, as it would enable the consumer electronics behemoth to ramp up production of the premium versions of the iPhone later in the year, while satisfying orders for the 4-inch device earlier in 2016. Should this apparently logical strategy be carried out, then the iPhone 6c would seem to be a natural name for the device. It seems unlikely that Apple would utilize the iPhone 7c moniker should the handset be released before the mainstream iPhone 7 units.
