The cheaper version of the iPhone was less than impressive with the debut of the iPhone 5c a couple of years back, but Apple is rumored to be doing so much more with the launch of an iPhone 6c right this time next month. New rumors on the launch of an Apple iPhone 6c are starting to materialize which will serve the purpose of giving consumers the amazing features seen in the latest iPhone, but at a much cheaper price.
The cheaper version of the iPhone served its purpose with its plastic surround which appealed to a specific subset of consumers. The many color options seemed to be popular with younger crowds which seems to be one of the driving forces behind what seems to be a iPhone 6c release in 2016. About this time next month we should see an official announcement out of Apple, but leaks suggest it’s inevitable.
The new Apple rumors seem to be likely with other manufacturers out of China offering high-end handsets for about half the cost of premium handsets. Samsung and Apple stand much to lose with the emergence of start-ups such as Lenovo, Xiaomi, and Asus launching high quality smartphones for under $500 USD. Xiaomi has quickly become the third leading manufacturer in the world, and it’s expected they may eventually take over the top spot if they become seen in other markets worldwide.
The latest Apple iPhone 6c rumors suggest a slightly bigger screen at 4.2 inches, and will bring back the plastic surround. Expect a more durable screen and a faster processor with the A8 chip rumored which was seen in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We’re also expecting to see the 6c to come standard with Apple Pay support built right-in giving consumers one more reason to go with the cheaper version of the latest iPhone.
There have also been rumors that Apple will be switching to a more conventional moniker in the upcoming cheaper version with the iPhone, but this is highly unlikely. Some have been forecasting the next iPhone would be called the iPhone 7 instead of the 6s, doing away with the “S” moniker all-together. We don’t believe this will happen as consumers have come to expect the expected, and Apple has been pretty consistent in recent years.
We’ll continue to bring you the very latest updates on what could be an Apple iPhone 6c release September 2016, which will be here before you know it. Feel free to like us on Facebook to get instant updates on all upcoming iPhone 6c rumors and confirmations.
