    I might be a bit slow, but I've noticed a huge trend across Apple product lines:

    Macs
    Everyday: iMac
    Power: Mac Pro
    Compact & utility: Mac mini

    Macbooks
    Everyday: Macbook
    Power: Mac Pro
    Compact & utility: Macbook Air

    iPads
    Everyday: iPad
    Power: iPad Pro
    Compact & utility: iPad Mini

    Now, for iPhones:
    Everyday: iPhone
    Power: iPhone Plus
    Compact & utility: ???

    Apple clearly will be introducing a smaller iPhone. Before you ask, the iPod touch doesn't count as it's not a phone. Does thie theory make sense?

    The Pro and mini and nano and Air have existed for some time and none have gotten applied to the iPhone in all the years. Even when a larger one was introduced they went with a whole new thing calling it Plus. So while anything is certainly possible, and perhaps it might seem something has more of a chance of happening at some point, it doesn't really seem that anything is really clear or a given simply based on names of other products.

    It's been an active 'trend' for quite some time. ;)

    'Books
    Everyday: iBook G3/G4
    Power: PowerBook G3/G4
    Compact & utility: 12" iBook G4 and 12" PowerBook G4

    But then I think you were meaning stuff after 2006, huh? :D

    Yeah, anything is certainly possible. It may be iPhone Lite.
