Apple is reportedly working on a 4-inch version of the iPhone 6

With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple finally gave fans what they wanted – an iPhone with a bigger display at 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches respectively. So what’s next for Apple? Move closer to the 6-inch range? Well if rumors are to be believed, Apple might actually be taking a step back and moving towards 4-inch phones again. This is according to an investor’s note issued by analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company in which he stated that Apple was working on a 4-inch iPhone that could make its debut in 2015.

Though Apple moved on from the 4-inch screen size this year with the launch of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, the company may return to that form factor next year with a new low-end handset, a new report claims. Analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company issued a note to investors this week claiming that Apple has been working on a new 4-inch iPhone model that could debut in 2015. A copy of the note was provided to AppleInsider. According to Arcuri, it’s “possible” that Apple could launch three new versions of the iPhone next year, with a so-called “iPhone 6s mini” at 4 inches joining the current-generation screen sizes. The analyst said his sources suggest the specifications of the 4-inch model could be similar to last year’s iPhone 5s. But the device may feature a new design with curved screen edges, much like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
