When do you think the NEW rumored iPhone 4-inch will be released?
If it is real, they'll release it in September along with the iPhone 7 & 7+.
EDIT: brainfarted 7+ as 7S
If it is real it will be released with the 7 and 7+ in September. The only way it is coming earlier is if Apple decides to change their iPhone release schedule and move it back to the summer from the fall for all models.
Guys....it's very hard to believe it will be released in September when:
1) A couple of reports from reliable analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo said it will be released by early 2016.
2)The often-reliable Japanese blog Mac Otakara said "The product HAS already Been ready for Production and it CAN BE shipped Anytime SAID the sources."
3) Micgadget.com said the other day they will receive the first prototype of the 4-inch iPhone next week!
"Never" should be an option. I don't say this to be snarky. I just don't think it will happen, so none of the responses are applicable to me.
Hopefully soon as I need a new phone and have been waiting for months for them to release a new 4 inch phone. If they don't release one soon I am going to have to look elsewhere.
Hopefully early 2016 but that time frame seems so off for Apple that I really don't expect this to happen.
I'll believe it when I see it, but I'd be thrilled if the 5S got an upgrade.
Agree with this... Don't care what the rumor mill says.
Where else are you going to look for a good 4" phone? No one makes smartphones with such small displays anymore.
I also would want to know, as a 4" or less phone with modern hardware would be tempting regardless of the OS.
I personally don't think they'll go back down that road again. And let's not forget that all of these same "insiders" swore last year that they'd release another 4 inch iPhone. If they were to release a "new" 4 inch iPhone it would cause additional fragmentation in the line as far as what features are available on the smaller handset. Additionally, it's not like they will heavily discount the device so it will cause problems with pricing UNLESS they finally do away with the 16GB option for the top tier models (slated to be named the 7 & 7+).
Sounds like someone wants one bad!
Sticking with 2016 fall.
It's very hard to ignore all these report, i do strongly believe that Apple decided on this long time ago, it's just they chose not to release it with iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus because that would be just too much
If you look at iPhone unusual releases history you will notice the iPhone 4 white was released in April...so it makes sense to release it at that time
iPhone mini 04/04/2016
It wouldn't increase fragmentation as they still have a 4" phone. The only way it does that is if Apple is stupid and intentionally cripples it with inferior hardware. And I don't think anyone who is wanting a 4" phone is wanting it to be cheaper we all want it to have similar hardware to the larger devices and would pay the same and for me at least I would pay more for a 4" screen with modern hardware.
Slightly off topic.
Do you think the 4" iPhone will be full spec and bump the now normal size and plus series up 100 dollars?
Do you think the 4" will be lower spec'd and 100 dollars cheaper?
Pick your poison....
I really hope they include the updated selfie camera in the new iPhone 6s
For your sake I hope they release it soon. I almost left Apple because their phones were so small but happy with my S+.
What features do you think the 4" phone will have?
same design as the iPhone 6s in a 4-inch size and call it iPhone mini
It will be interesting to see that in a 4" device. Time will tell.
How about Sep - Oct? They'll probably release it alongside the 7.
Everyone knows it's gotta be September.
Likelihood of a soft release like last iPod Touch when that saw a major spec bump with no publicity? I.e. same external shell as a 5s but with nearly up-to-date internals (A8) and maybe Apple Pay? I can't see iPhone mini as a viable name but then I scoffed at iPhone 6 Plus when I first heard it as a rumour so who knows!
Apple could surprise us all and introduce it soon for all we know. It does not have to be released with the 7. I am betting on a soft release with little to no warning.
