Supply chain says 4-inch Apple iPhone 6 mini is not coming

Supply chain says 4-inch Apple iPhone 6 mini is not coming
Some people miss the smaller 4-inch iPhone screens so much, that rumors have started over the last few weeks about a Apple iPhone 6 mini being prepped by Apple. Ironically, the same supply chain sources that said that a 4-inch iPhone was coming in 2015, are now refuting the whole premise. These sources now say that Apple has not ordered any parts that could be used in the production of such a device.

The supply chain also indicated that it would seem unlikely that Apple would go back to producing a 4-inch model after all of the hoopla and fanfare that accompanied the launch of the newer, larger iPhones. The Apple iPhone 6 features a 4.7-inch screen, while the Apple iPhone 6 Plus phablet is equipped with a 5.5-inch display.

It seems light years away when the OG Apple iPhone's 3.5-inch glass was considered, in the parlance of the day, "generous." The Windows Mobile powered HTC HD2 seemed like a giant in 2009, with its 4.3-inch display. Now, we have "mini" versions of Android phones coming to market with 5-inch screens. Those nostalgic for smaller displays, or who were born with small hands, can still find the 4-inch Apple iPhone 5s around. But if the supply chain is right this time, Apple is looking ahead, not behind.



Thanks for the tip!
