We have pretty much lost faith in the rumor we published yesterday regarding Apple making a 5.8-inch iPhone with OLED screen. While the initial claim itself is not outlandish, pointing to a 2017 (at the earliest) launch for the device, the latest report suggesting Apple will fit the handset with folding screens has us plenty skeptical.
Apple is fully expected to launch a smaller (iPhone Se) this month, but what about the company's upcoming flagships that will launch at the end of year? The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus should be a near total overhaul of the current iPhone 6 range, and that could mean an even larger screen for the Plus, according to some reports.
Apple is breaking with convention and will launch a bunch of new products this spring. Over recent years Cupertino has shifted its product announcements to the fall, even revealing the Apple Watch in September, six months before it launched. Of course, spring launches are not unprecedented for the company and Apple is returning to the early year launch silly season with three new products that will be announced on March 15th.
Apple's last iPhone launch event was a blockbuster affair. Smartphones, tablets, and even pencils flew were introduced, but there was one much rumored product that was missing. Cupertino had been widely tipped to be launching an iPhone 6c, a sequel to the iPhone 5c that offers consumers a chance to have an affordable Apple handset.
Last year the iPhone 6 was a monster hit and swept all before it to breaking just about every smartphone sales record there is. Surely the only way was down for Apple and the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? Not quite as Apple has just officially revealed that it shipped a whopping 13 million units of the new iPhone 6s range over the first three days of release.
The pink (ahem, we mean rose gold) iPhone 6s is proving to be something of a hit among consumers with the device making up the majority of pre-order units. Much like the gold iPhone 5s launched two years ago, many people thought the color option simply wouldn't look good or appeal to consumers. However, Apple proved us all wrong twice is seems.
With carriers starting to decrease subsidized contracts it is easy to see how Apple could be one of the companies most affected by the change. With consumers having to pay full prices for smartphones, they are more likely to look for affordable device or those that offer bang for your buck. Apple's expensive iPhones may be out of the reach of many people, but Cupertino has a plan to solve that potential problem.
If you blinked during Apple's iPhone/iPad/Apple TV announcement yesterday you would have likely missed the launch of a new iPad Min... the iPad Mini 4. Wait, you may be thinking that there was not iPad Mini 4 announcement at all, but trust us there is a new model of Apple's small slate and it was briefly shown in the new iPad price list.
How do you keep what is an incremental update fresh and exciting, something consumers want to buy? It is a problem Apple has tackled in recent years with its iPhone s devices and 2015's iPhone 6s is certainly no different as like its predecessors it does not chance anything in terms of aesthetics.
What is Apple's flagship device, is it?s the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 6s Plus? Both were launched today by the largest tech company in the world and the answer to the question is that both handsets are flagships. The iPhone 6s is the company's sales driver, the smartphone that most people will buy, but the iPhone 6s Plus is the larger and more potently spec'd of the two.
