Though Apple has launched its range of a big screen for its latest iPhones, it seems that the technology giant has not given up on its idea of launching a smaller version of its smartphone. The company is reportedly planning to launch its 4-inch iPhone by the middle of 2015.
The news has been confirmed by Electronic times of Taiwan and Apple is planning the move after feedback from its customers who were looking for a smaller variant of the smartphone. The target customers for this smartphone would be women who face problems in carrying a big screen iPhone.
Apple has been in news this year as it launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus which featured in 4.7 and 5.5-inch screen sizes respectively. Apple has to learn from its history too when it comes to launching new variants of iPhone. Back in 2010, Steve Jobs had launched iPhone 4 in 3.5-inch screen size as he was optimistic that people using iPhone will never go for size but the usability of the smartphone.
Eventually, Apple had to give in to the competition it faced from Samsung which launched Galaxy Note in a 5.3-inch screen size. Apple has now decided to return to its roots and launch a smartphone with a smaller screen size.
