A matter of months after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and we are already hearing rumours of the company heading back to a 4in display. According to information from a Taiwanese parts supplier the iPhone Mini will feature a 4in display and is set to launch in 2015.
The iPhone 6 marked the end of the 4in display that was seen on the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c as Apple adopted a 4.7in screen. The iPhone 6 Plus took it to new heights with a 5.5in display.
Critically the iPhone 6 display has been well received - it seems Apple isn’t all that confident in the new size though. Rumours suggest the iPhone Plus range will continue as well as the flagship size, that may mean we'll see three different phone sizes in 2015.
Rumours also suggest the iPhone 5c will be dropped from the product line up next year. It’ll be replaced by the iPhone 5s as the free option for contracts. That does raise the question of where a 4in iPhone Mini would fit into the product line up.
Sales for the iPhone 6 have been all round impressive so we don’t expect to see Apple dropping the screen size any time soon.
So far it is uncertain whether the next addition to the Apple range will be called the iPhone 6s or the iPhone 7. The rumours are really beginning to kick off though – the latest suggests there will be an iPhone released alongside the Apple Watch early in 2015 and then another by the end of September.
