It is a common rumor this year that Apple is working on a new "affordable" iPhone that will land alongside the iPhone 6s next month. Of course we use the term affordable loosely as any replacement for the iPhone 5c is likely to be anything but, however we have already heard that at least time Apple with sort us out with a metal body device.
Now Digitimes (a sketchy source on Apple with a hit and miss track record) now says that the iPhone 6c will be launching through the second quarter of next year. That is possible, but only under one scenario, so let me explain.
My own source in Cupertino’s marketing team has repeatedly been correct in shooting down any non-fall launches. Apple is 100% behind launching its major categories during the closing months of the year to make it big during the Holiday Season. If the iPhone 6c does arrive midway through 2016 is will be the company’s attempt to give it a spot in the limelight. However, if that launch date is true (I am sceptical) then it is all but guaranteed that Apple will announce the handset next month and the iPhone 6s event, similar to how the company handled the Apple Watch last year.
If the iPhone 6c is not announced before the end of this year, forget about it launching Q2 in 2016!
