So I have the iphone 6 and love it. I have large hands so the size is fine but I have many friends who got a 5s because they couldn't function with the large screen. Here is my idea, alternate between C and + models every year. The c would be the same phone size as the 5c but with a smaller bezel and a larger screen. Also there would be possibly a touch id and defiantly performance upgrade from the 5c. I know the 5c didn't sell well but I think this would be different because the 6c would be the highest performing small iphone compared to when the 5s was better than the 5c. I think this would cover all types of consumers for apple.

I think it would be easier if they just made a 4" model, but that isn't likely to happen.

Isn't that what they do? Take a look at your proposal, and then look at what Apple did.

6, 6+
6s, 6c
7, 7+

Now move each number down by one:

5 (obviously no 5+ because a large screen iPhone did not exist yet)
5S, 5C
6, 6+

Naw, Steve jobs was anal.

He was slow to move forward technology wise. He didn't believe in large screens. Etc.

Glad he is gone
He moved quickly when speed was called for. He often said he was against things and then did an apparent 180, usually because people didn't understand why he was against the thing initially (the iPhone itself being the classic example.) Second guessing the guy when he was alive was a fools game. Now that he's dead? Even more rediculous IMO.

Steve was perfectly able to change his mind.

Some of the stories may not be all that true.

If he blasted you or your work, and you knew you were right, you could stand up to him and he would appreciate it. You just needed to be able to argue, respectfully.
