Ever stumbled upon the ad for the iPhone 5 embedded right above? Go ahead and check it out – it's only 30 seconds-long. Saw it? Good.
It's a bit ironic, isn't it? Specifically because we now have as monstrous an iPhone as the 5.5-inch 6 Plus, and even the smaller, 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is visibly larger than anything else Apple has produced in the past. But, in the end, the company felt it's finally time it addressed what we now know to be great demand for a larger-screened iPhone. In the process, however, folks that adored their iPhone not least because of its compact form factor, were left in the dust.
which is rumored to be on path to being discontinued, also in 2015.A new report, however, suggests that this might change sometime in the second half of 2015. Apparently, Apple's supply chain partners are, like always, a bit too talkative, and are now claiming that the giant is thinking of releasing a 4-inch iPhone. We're told that such a device will be aimed at folks who value one-handed operation and female users. If true, that one may easily be what Apple has in mind for the slot currently occupied by the iPhone 5c,
What do you guys think?

Interestingly enough, now that you mentioned it.. I've seen listed as supported devices, for a product (can't quite recall but if I stumble on it again, it'll be sure to link/screenshot), that listed 6c, 6s, and I believe 6sc. It was strange and I thought they got something wrong but who knows...

Stop dreaming. Its not gonna be the iPhne 6 spes in a smaller package. Since the 5C was a flop and it has the 5 specs, I can bet it will be the iPhone 5 specs shoved into a smaller package. Why? Because since the iPhone 5C has poor sales, Apple is left with all those chips they purchase. Instead of taking a lose, they will simply use them in this device. They've done this so many times before.

It makes sense, IMO they should keep these 3 form factors 4', 4.7' and 5.5'. Those are sweet spots for all types of people.

It's good for users to have the option to choose, especially for people who want simple, small, and functional phones. They can make a more simplicity interface similar to iPod nano (specially designed for small screen and keep everything easy to read). Expect this model at $50 or $100 with contract.

Nope, it's a phone for a demographic way larger than the spec head demographic you belong to. The mainstream consumer, which has a huge female base. Remember these companies are in the business of making money, that means broad appeal to a broad consumer base. Stop thinking like a fanboy.

Not everyone need bigger phones. Apple know that. The only thing that is only for ants is your manparts.

I think its a smart move. Apple caters to the mainstream consumer, and that demographic is not the spec heads. Not everyone wants a huge screen, and Octa core, ditching the 4 incher could cause a financial hit. 4, 4.7, and 5.5 is the way to go.

my bucket list for this year, 5.5 inch android, (xperia z4); 5 inch windows phone (nokia lumia 930); and 4 inch iOS :) But i'll wait for the design, if it'll follow the design of iphone 6, i'll go iphone 5s instead. :D

Some reviewers have already pointed out that Apple has a complete lineup of speedy iPhones now, with the 5S, 6, and 6+. Why wouldn't they keep that up? I could see them replacing the 5C next year with something faster and better-equipped, but not exactly a 5S.
