If we had to guess Apple’s secret motto, we’d definitely bank on, “The newer the iPhone, the bigger the screen.” Hell, when my new iPhone 6 finally arrived in the mail, I officially gave up on ever carrying a phone in my pocket again and headed straight to the closet for a purse.
It looks like Apple is taking iPhone users’ number one half-complaint (half complaint because we love using the big screen, but it’s just not as practical for carrying as it is for watching Netflix) into consideration. Rumor has it that the company may be releasing an iPhone 6 with a four-inch screen in the near future.
According to the rumor—which was reported by Mac Rumors but allegedly originated in Apple’s supply chain in China—the four-inch iPhone 6 will be released later next year as part of Apple’s 2015 line-up.
If it happens, this release would be targeted at women, according to both the rumor and our common sense, which reminds us that women’s pants usually come with tiny pockets while men are still doing okay in the phone-in-pocket department.
Currently, the iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch screen while the iPhone 6 plus sports a whopping 5.5-inch screen.
With new smartphones approaching the size of their users faces, we imagine there could be a big demand for new and improved palm-sized phones.
