More or less likely Apple plans to drop next generation iPhone 6c this Fall in favor for iPhone 6. Apple have been selling iPhone 6 very well since a year and it is no reason for them to change it into colorful iPhone 6c. Some sources suggest that iPhone 6c should come out next year with 4-inch display and design like iPhone 6 according to the statement from Timothy Arcuri, an analyst with Cowen and Company.
“I think one of the reasons is because the iPhone 6 has sold so well,” Arcuri said. “And they said, ‘Look, why would we want to cannibalize? If we came out with an iPhone 6c, we would essentially cannibalize a price-reduced iPhone 6.”
The point is that Apple knows how well the iPhone 6 is selling compared to the larger iPhone 6 Plus. There are still some users out there would want to get new iPhone 6c due to comfortable with 4-inch display iPhone. It makes sense that Apple would want to keep iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s till next year to release next generation iPhone 6c. But who knows? Apple could surprise us this Fall with iPhone 6c with new features like Touch ID and Apple Pay support.
