With Apple announcing its September 9 event anticipated to see the launch of the its new iPhone models—likely to be called iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus—new leaks and rumours claim to give a close look at just what the Cupertino giant will unveil.
A report claims that the long rumoured iPhone 6c is not getting launched at Apple’s September 9 event along with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. A new iPhone 5c will not be seen this year and the plastic-clad iPhone series will be discontinued, it added.
Earlier, reports claimed that Apple may launch three iPhone models this year—the iPhone 6s, the iPhone 6s Plus, and the iPhone 6c.
As per reports, Apple will have a five-model iPhone lineup this year. With the iPhone 5c discontinued, Apple will have iPhone 5s at the bottom rung, with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, and the iPhone 6s Plus rounding it off. Incidentally, all of these iPhone models have Touch ID, the fingerprint sensor.
Many were expecting the company to launch an affordable iPhone, the iPhone 6c at the event to combat against the growing, Android-dominated smartphone market.
There have been rumours about the size of the the iPhone 6c’s display, with some pointing to a 4-inch display, and others pointing at a 5-inch size in between the current 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.
