Apple not working on smaller iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2011

Remember the latest rumor about Apple working on a smaller iPhone? Well, according to the New York Times, that ain’t happening, though Apple has looked at the possibility of a cheaper model. Earlier rumors had Apple developing a prototype of a smaller and cheaper iPhone, 1/3 smaller, or 1/2 as small depending who you believe, but the Times is now claiming that “Apple is not currently developing a smaller iPhone, according to people briefed on Apple’s plans who requested anonymity because the plans are confidential.”

Anyway, a smaller device would not necessarily be much cheaper to make and it would be a pain to use besides. Developers might have to rewrite their apps too. So no smaller iPhone just yet.

Posted in Sony Ericsson by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2010
