Apple could launch THREE new iPhones this year - rumours suggest 4-inch iPhone 6C, 6S and 6S Plus

The rumoured iPhone 6C could feature a smaller screen and more affordable price. 


Apple will launch three new iPhone models in September this year rather than the usual two, according to new rumours that have surfaced online.

Alongside an iPhone 6S and an iPhone 6S Plus, the world's most valuable company could reveal a smaller iPhone 6C - potentially with a 4-inch screen.

The new addition would be in a similar vein to the iPhone 5C that launched alongside the iPhone 5S in 2013. It would feature a smaller screen and could, potentially, be more affordable than the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

Like the current models, the new iPhones would all be equipped with TouchID fingerprint scanners and Near-Field Communication (NFC) for using Apple Pay.

The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus would - as in previous years - feature a boost in processing power to stay relevant against the likes of the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

But it is believed that the smaller iPhone 6C would stick with the current A8 processor found in the iPhone 6 in order to keep the overall cost down.

Apple traditionally launches its new phones in September each year

A report published in Digitimes suggests the display panels for the new phones will be developed by screen companies Japan Display and LG Display. The iPhone 6C and iPhone 6S Plus screens will have added input from Sharp.

Rather than feature the long-rumoured sapphire crystal screen, the new phones are believed to stick with Corning's Gorilla Glass display.

However, the displays are likely to be more sensitive than ever before and incorporate new technology that Apple has developed for the Apple Watch and new Macbook.

It is believed the new iPhone models could support the equivalent of the Macbook's "force click" feature - where a harder press results in a different action.

"Apple plans to add sensors to detect how hard a user is pressing on a screen to its next iPhones, incorporating a technology used in its forthcoming MacBook and Apple Watch, according to people familiar with the matter," reported the Wall Street Journal.

All three new phones are likely to be revealed in September, which is historically when Apple chooses to reveal its latest handsets.
