8GB Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iWatch could make appearances at WWDC says analyst Ming-Chi Kuo

8GB Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iWatch could make appearances at WWDC says analyst Ming-Chi Kuo
While Apple has already released a cheaper 8GB version of the Apple iPhone 5c, an 8GB version of the Apple iPhone 5s could be coming. According to connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, next month at WWDC Apple could introduce the cheaper version of its flagship phone. The KGI securities analyst is hedging his bet a little, something unusual for him. He says that since the update is a minor one, Apple might decide not to introduce it.

Kuo doesn't see much hardware being unveiled at Apple's annual developer conference. In other words, don't expect the tech titan to unwrap the Apple iPhone 6. He says that there is an outside chance that the iWatch will be shown off as part of the iOS 8 introduction, but says that the chances of that occurring are slim.

Apple is using the cheaper 8GB version of the iPhone 5c in order to compete with low priced Android and Windows Phone models in emerging markets. It is getting exceedingly hard for the company to compete with "Value-priced" phones like the Nokia Lumia 520 and the Motorola Moto E.

WWDC starts this year on June 2 and runs through June 6th.
