iPhone 6c 2016 – Mockups detail rumored 4-inch display, curved edges, new colors [gallery]

Apple’s iPhone 6c, set to be the first iPhone ever released in the Spring, has got the die-hard 4-inch iPhone fans excited for a return to the smaller form factor smartphone. From what we’ve heard, the iPhone 6c may have new colors that resemble an iPod Touch as much as it’s said to resemble the current crop of iPhones in terms of the physical design. This mockup imagines what the iPhone 6c would look like with iPod and iPhone colors, rounded edges and iPhone 6/s design.

iPhone-6c-ipod

recent report from KGI anticipates an A9 processor, 16GB of storage, NFC, Touch ID, and 2GB of RAM internally, which will make it extremely fast, especially with the fewer amount of pixels to push compared to Apple’s larger iPhones. Many, including China Times, expected the iPhone 6C to be released last year, but KGI also was the first to suggest a H1 2016 launch.

A series of Chinese reports noted that a larger 1,642mAh battery is in the cards for the 6C– an upgrade from the battery in the 5s– but support for 3D Touch is likely not. That’s a feature Apple will likely want to reserve as a highlight feature of its flagship handsets for some time. And the reports again suggested that the 6c will get Touch ID and an NFC chip to support Apple Pay.

We don’t expect the iPhone 6c to have an OLED display, though it seems like Apple is moving in that direction on its flagships.

(Head below for the full gallery put together built by our friend Ferry Passchier)

The iPhone 6c would obviously replace the iPhone 5s as Apple’s entry level device, which is currently available for $450 and up and for free with a 2-year commitment. That device is getting old and Apple needs something new to offer die-hard 4-inch fans as the 5c’s aging specs become more and more obsolete. We expect the price of the iPhone 6c to be similar. Also, the 5s is available in 16GB and 32GB configurations with a $50 premium on the higher end model.

There has been some speculation that the name of the device might instead be the iPhone 7c, since it could eventually accompany the upcoming iPhone 7 in the lineup. However with the usual fall launch still expected for the iPhone 7, this feels unlikely.

But what’s more interesting here is that Apple’s iPhone 6c will start to resemble its iPod touch lineup more than ever before, to the point that perhaps there will soon be no need for a separate iPod line at all. We noted in our review of Apple’s refreshed iPod touch in July that an iPhone 5s and 5c models could be had for around the same amount as a new iPod touch. It remains to be seen exactly how Apple prices the new 6c, or what happens to the iPod line, but the 6c will certainly be the most attractive option to those that would otherwise opt for a 4-inch iPod touch or previous generation 4-inch iPhone.

While the new iPhone 6c may spike the low end of Apple’s market, IDC doesn’t expect the release to change the Android-led smartphone landscape drastically.

Rare manufacturing error leaves iPad Pro with gold Touch ID ring and silver back

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 8.16.19 PM

iPad Pro officially launched last week to the public after initially being announced back in September. The device launched in Apple’s standard trio of color choices, as well: silver, gold, and Space Gray. As with all Apple products, the Touch ID ring found on the Space Gray model is black, while the ring is gold on the gold model and silver on the silver model, just like you’d expect. At least one user, however, has received an iPad Pro with a different color combination…

A 9to5Mac reader has shared the above image and the video blow that both clearly show a silver iPad Pro featuring a gold Touch ID ring. The reader purchased his iPad Pro through AT&T with LTE and 128GB of storage. Everything else about the iPad is correct – the back is silver, the edges are silver, and the iPad Pro shown on the box is silver with a silver Touch ID ring.

When our reader contacted Apple about the problem, they told him it’s an “extremely rare” manufacturing error, but that he would need to go through AT&T to get a replacement. Likewise, AT&T also claimed it was a rare production issue and even told him that he could get a lot of money for it on eBay.

We’ve yet to see any other instances of this issue, making it all the more interesting as to how this could have happened in the first place. In the end, our reader, Nick, decided to hold onto his unique silver iPad Pro with a gold Touch ID ring. If you ask me, it’s a pretty cool “manufacturing error” for a device to feature and actually looks really nice.

Below is a video of Nick’s iPad Pro:

Thanks Nick!
