Despite recent reports claiming that Apple will delay the launch of the iPhone 6c, or even scrap it altogether, a reliable leaker says the 4-inch device will arrive alongside the iPhone 6s after all.
Countless reports throughout 2015 have suggested that Apple will launch an iPhone 5c successor this year, with an improved design made of metal and refreshed internals. The device is expected to maintain its 4-inch display and provide a smaller option for those who don’t like larger smartphones.
But recent reports have cast doubt on a 2015 launch. An early August report, citing sources in Apple’s supply chain, said the device won’t arrive until the second quarter of 2016, while one analyst warned in late July that Apple may have scrapped its iPhone 6c plans altogether.
Now Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks on Twitter, says that “iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, and 6c will all arrive concurrently,” suggesting all three devices will be in attendance at Apple’s keynote next month.
Although Blass doesn’t normally leak Apple’s plans, he does have a remarkably accurate track record. Having said that, it’s always best to take rumors with a pinch of salt until they’re made official.
