A 4-Inch Apple iPhone 6c Fits Jobs' Ethos

An iPhone 6c with a 4-inch screen would seem to make sense for Apple on several different levels.

The affordable marketplace looks to be a growth niche for the cooperation, with Apple’s excellent recent sales figures being at least partly attributed to outstanding sales in China. Samsung Electronics has traditionally been extremely successful in East Asia, but now Apple is seriously rivaling the Korean corporation in this region, and has proved particularly popular in the world’s most populous nation.

It is also thought that the idea of a 4-inch smartphone would appeal to the sadly late founder and CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs. Some years ago, Jobs explicitly stated that he considered the ideal smartphone screen size to be 3.5-inches, and the creation of the iPhone 6c is considered to be very much in line with this vision.

Although Apple has been hugely successful under the tutelage of its new CEO Tim Cook, there have been criticisms of the corporation which have focused on a lack of innovation. The idea of producing a mobile which goes against the cultural zeitgeist of large smartphones would be an interesting concept that would once again distinguish Apple from its competitors.

Apple has also previously promised that it would develop new product niches and revenue streams. This was in response to a plummeting of its share price in early 2014, after the corporation revealed sub-par sales figures to investors and analysts. Although Apple has emphatically recovered from this mishap since then, having posted some extremely impressive sales and revenue figures during 2014, the corporation is still mindful of the fact that it needs to demonstrate new revenue streams in order to stimulate growth.

The Apple Watch and the iPhone 6 Plus were the first two shots fired in this particular battle, and the production of a small iPhone 6c would seem to be the next logical step. This could rack up a large number of sales for Apple, while at the same time being relatively simple in logistical terms to produce, and an affordable production alternative to the existing iPhone models.

With images now being leaked via Reddit, the speculation related to this device will only intensify. Whether everyone will see the iPhone 6c this year or not is debatable, but the existence and release of the handset seems increasingly inevitable.
