A cheaper iPhone may be on the way this summer. Apple is reportedly considering releasing the less-expensive model based on a note from RBC Capital Market’s Amit Daryanani to investors retrieved by Apple Insider.
If rumors of the touchscreen watch, or iWatch, for which Apple reportedly recently filed a patent didn't get you going, there's good news: the release of a the new iPhone 5S is rumored to follow the established pattern of late summer releases, and Apple reportedly intends to couple its release with a second, cheaper version aimed at emerging markets in China and the U.
Apple has three new smartphone models in the works including the iPhone 5S, a low-budget iPhone and the iPhone 6, that would all be released prior to next Christmas. Despite the fact that Apple has been releasing only one version of its smartphone per year and that the iPhone 5 only hit shelves this past September, the company is making a big push with three new models this year, according to the China Times.
The newly-released iPhone 5 may not stop you from drunk-dialing your exes — yet — but it is 18% thinner and 20% lighter than its predecessor, making it the thinnest smartphone in the world according to Apple.
