No. Radio transmitters need approval. There would not be any difference in the radios between different storage sizes. So this means either 6 and 6C or two different 6 models.

In Thai news, it mentions A1586 and A1524. You can check it here.

The 4 inch phone is dead. Time to come to grips with it. The large screen phones for Android are selling big-time and there is no way Apple is going to miss out on that market, even if Steve Jobs was still around.

The significantly lower model number could suggest that it's the new iPhone 6c. Come on guys, did you really think Apple would announce a new iPhone and not have a "mid tier" (aka rehashed older model) for sale??

Also, the model numbers never have differentiated size or color. See for yourself:

Right now, the highest Iphone 5C model is...guess what? A1532. Iphone 5C model is even higher than the unreleased A1524, so most likely this is a cheap 6C model.
The model numbers don't necessarily strictly increase from one generation to the next. Some iPhone 5s's have A14xx model numbers and there are quite a few more overlaps elsewhere.

5.5

I still think that the 5.5 might be an iPod touch. Or has that been proven to not be possible?

Wtf? Stop whining and learn to speak English! If you "need" a phone "to your height" so desperately then, GUESS WHAT? There are PLENTY of 4" iPhones out there for you! It's quite astounding, I know! But it's true!! Enjoy!! /s

i think they need to stick with the last year plan. Like the two tone flash isn't going anywhere because was just released last year...so does the Apple market plan for two iPhones The 4.7" iphone and the 4.7" iphone 6C
I think people wants that multiple colours

http://www.everymac.com/systems/appl...5c-models.html

I came here to say this. Looks like there will be a 6c and a 6. My bet is the 4.7 will be the 6 and a 4 inch repackaged 5s will be the 6c.

I think if I take all three of those together, I can make sense of that tweet. Translation software still has a long way to go.

So there's either no 5.5" or no 4"?

This is actually bad news if true.

I'm guessing Thailand won't be on the list of initial release countries for whatever phone follows the iPhone 6.

I think Apple will move away from the 'c' branding, as '6c' is too difficult for people to pronounce, and it sounds too similar to 'Sexy' haha

No. And SJ would disagree. He often said people didn't know what they wanted because all they knew is what they already had, not what was next.

I get so tired of people calling the C models "cheap."

For the most part I love it that Apple is quiet and doesn't waste time refuting every dumb rumor that comes around. Sometimes though this passive style allows the media to really control the narrative. That's exactly what happened with the 5C. Analysts, bloggers, and pundits in general, started telling everyone that Apple was releasing a "cheap" phone that could be priced as low as $300 without a contract. They said this so frequently that it became the expectation. When Apple announced the 5C everyone knew it was the lower end model and then when the price hit it was shocking to so many. In reality Apple released a great phone with the 5C, but it still can't get away from the "cheap" narrative that the media implanted. The 5C was much much better than just keeping the 5 around like Apple had done previously, but it didn't matter.

Not that I'm saying that the 5C has been a flop or anything. I'm just making the point that sometimes Apple should step in front of the media and control the narrative before a mentality gets set in stone.

How odd. I could have sworn it said A1533. Maybe I was just half-asleep.

In any event, if you look at the listing of iPhone 5c model numbers, A1524 would be right smack in the middle of them. Frankly, that makes me suspect it's an 8GB iPhone 5c, for the $0 price point.
