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