Will the iPhone 6c Land Summer 2016?


It is a common rumor this year that Apple is working on a new “affordable” iPhone that will land alongside the iPhone 6s next month. Of course we use the term affordable loosely as any replacement for the iPhone 5c is likely to be anything but, however we have already heard that at least time Apple with sort us out with a metal body device.

Now Digitimes (a sketchy source on Apple with a hit and miss track record) now says that the iPhone 6c will be launching through the second quarter of next year. That is possible, but only under one scenario, so let me explain.

My own source in Cupertino’s marketing team has repeatedly been correct in shooting down any non-fall launches. Apple is 100% behind launching its major categories during the closing months of the year to make it big during the Holiday Season. If the iPhone 6c does arrive midway through 2016 is will be the company’s attempt to give it a spot in the limelight. However, if that launch date is true (I am sceptical) then it is all but guaranteed that Apple will announce the handset next month and the iPhone 6s event, similar to how the company handled the Apple Watch last year.

If the iPhone 6c is not announced before the end of this year, forget about it launching Q2 in 2016!

Apple iPad Decline Equals General Market Trend


The most worrying aspect of Apple’s thriving business at the moment is the iPad, which has suffered sales declines for the last six quarters. However, the device is merely following an overall market trend that has saw sales of tablets decline on the whole for the same amount of time. Yes, Cupertino’s slate is declining rapidly, but then it has further to fall and is still comfortably the best-selling tablet on the market.

Respected market research, the IDC, has revealed that 44.7 million tablets were sold throughout the industry during the second quarter, which run April through June. That is a sharp 7% decline from the 48 million units that we shipped during the same period last year.

The iPad was responsible for nearly 25% of those sales, amassing 10.9 million in unit sales throughout the period, which was still a 17.9% fall year-on-year. Apple CEO Tim Cook has often said the iPad will rebound when the enterprise initiative with IBM really takes hold, but it is hard to see how the iPad can find success in an overall market that is declining. The truth is consumers do not want to upgrade tablets with the same regularity that they do smartphones, perhaps if Cook and co. can get them to do so, the iPad may flourish once again.

Apple: 16GB Storage Frees Up Resources


While we pretty much love everything that Apple does here at Daily iPhone Blog, there are some aspects of the company that still mystify us. Chief among those and a regular debating point in our office is why the company persists in offering 16GB as a base storage (for the iPhone and iPad) in a world where people consume media in huge amounts online and via downloading?

Apple’s Phil Schiller has explained (sort of) why the company does still offer 16GB, speaking to “The Talk Show” podcast the marketing man said:

“The belief is more and more as we use iCloud services for documents and our photos and videos and music that perhaps the most price-conscious customers are able to live in an environment where they don’t need gobs of local storage because these services are lightening the load.”

He also attempted to say that not focusing on higher storage left resources for other areas, but considering Apple is the richest company in the world, we simply are not buying that excuse.

Schiller also took the time to give his thoughts on the future balance between slim design and high battery life:

“If you want a product that’s thicker with a bigger battery it’s also heavier, more costly, takes longer to charge. We model every thickness, every size, every weight and try to figure out what the tradeoffs are. I think we’ve made great choices there,” Schiller claimed.

Apple to have Record Second Quarter, Over 51 Million iPhones to Sell


Apple enjoys profit making quarters constantly, the company is a success every period, but the last two have been especially amazing with the company smashing records during Q4 to end last year and then broke its own best for a first quarter. It comes as little surprise then that analysts are saying Cupertino will continue its record breaking run by having a bumper second quarter.

Of course, Apple always bests those pesky analysts, so we expect the company to do even better than what Wall Street predicts. The US financial center says in general says that around 45 million iPhones will be sold during the period, although UBS Evidence Labs says the figure will actually be more like 51.1 million units.

That would be a record third quarter for Apple, and USB Evidence Labs has a solid track record in getting iPhone sales figures right. The company says increased exposure in China, where Apple is now the number 1 phone manufacturer, is likely to lead to this sales boost.
