4-inch iPhone 6c no show on Sept. 9; Apple considered 3.5-inch iPhone

Apple just released invites for its iPhone 6s event on September 9, which will be held in San Francisco. While we are already expecting the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, a refreshed Apple TV, possible new iPads and more, earlier rumors pointed to the small chance that Apple might also introduce a 4-inch iPhone 6c.

That won’t happen, 9to5Mac says, noting that “the device is not yet ready to ship.” Apple will instead offer 4-inch fans the iPhone 5s with a free on-contract price. The news outlet said Apple has also been testing an even smaller 3.5-inch iPhone for folks who want something really small, but that Apple probably won’t ever release such a phone.

As the new iPhones hit store shelves, Apple will also reportedly discontinue the iPhone 5c — apparently never a popular phone, despite Apple’s intentions to hook people to colorful cases — in the United States. Farewell, old friend.
