The iPhone 6c release date is near, or at least that is what the latest iPhone 6c rumors tell us as we look towards a new 2016 iPhone that will tide users over to a fall iPhone 7 release date.
We finally have a collection of important and exciting iPhone 6c rumors from a reliable set of sources that come together to form a good picture of what the iPhone 6c will look like, what iPhone 6c specs to look forward to and fill in the blanks about other key details about this new iPhone.
We’ve heard rumors of an iPhone 6c release date for the past two years, and two major iPhone events came and went without a new iPhone. Now the signs point to a new 4-inch iPhone from Apple that will offer an alternative to the larger screens found on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
We still expect an iPhone 7 release date in the fall with two large screen smartphones packed full of new features and a new design, but the first new iPhone of 2016 could arrive much sooner.
Potential buyers need to keep in mind that these are still iPhone 6c rumors, so there is a chance that Apple will hold off on an announcement or that the iPhone 6c features and specs will change from this report.
To bring you up to speed on the most important iPhone 6c rumors we piece together what sources told us, reports from analysts and other industry insiders that come together to help buyers understand what Apple is likely planning for early 2016.
iPhone 6c Event -- Apple March 2016 Event
1 / 9
Signs indicate plans for an Apple March 2016 event that will include a new 4-inch iPhone. This is what we expect will be the iPhone 6c.
There is history of Spring Apple events, but we typically see new iPhones in the fall and in recent years we've seen Appel shift the iPad to the fall as well.
As 2015 came to a close Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac reported that Apple is planing a March 2016 event to possibly announce an Apple Watch 2 and iPhone 6c. Since then, rumors cast doubt on an Apple Watch 2 announcement, but there is still a good chance that Apple is working on an iPhone 6c.
In 2015 an Apple March event introduced the 12-inch MacBook, introduced a Health initiative and delivered a finalized look at the Apple Watch.
We're still waiting on an official confirmation and the date of a 2016 March Apple Event, but an iPhone 6c release date can't be far behind.
