New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

Now that the Apple Watch has finally been released, the world can begin returning to normal. And with that comes rumors and speculation about Apple's other products. The two latest pieces of information focus on less-promoted devices like the iPod Touch and a cheaper, low-end iPhone successor. The near-forgotten iPod Touch was last updated in October 2012, so even a minor refresh could be welcome, while a followup to 2013's iPhone 5C was absent from last September's iPhone 6 debut.

iPhone 6c with metal back: busted

iPhone 6c with metal back: busted

This morning a rumor flew quick across the Apple-friendly newlines that a new iPhone 5c with metal back was coming on quick. Several photos were included with this "leak", showing how the next iPhone "C" model would toss aside the colorful plastic of old, coming clean with... basically the same metal frame as the higher-end iPhones. Does that make a lot of sense to you? No? Imagine our surprise when a link was shared to the origin of these images - none other than Ali Express, the auction and sales site.

iPhone 6c tipped: keeping the 4-inch display legacy

iPhone 6c tipped: keeping the 4-inch display legacy

Keeping with the three-tiered approach in 2015 through 2016, a leak this week appears to confirm Apple's next lowest-level iPhone, the iPhone 6c. This device would replicate the success of the iPhone 5s with a dual-flash housing while it keeps with the colorful plastic of the iPhone 5c. This device also appears to be coming with a newly expanded double-grill of holes drilled in the base, suggesting there'll be more speaker range in the near future. Of course these speakers will still be pointing downward, not forward.

Phones 4U liquidation may bend Apple’s pricing rules

Phones 4U liquidation may bend Apple’s pricing rules

It would appear that Apple's regular relatively strict controls on pricing for iPhones and iPads will have little to no baring on the liquidation of Phone 4U. This mobile device company was kicked to the curb earlier this year - right before the release of the iPhone 6. In fact the company saw some extra controversy when it was discovered that Phone 4U wouldn't be issuing refunds on iPhone 6 pre-orders. Now we'll go ahead and assume that the owners of Phones 4U either don't expect to work with Apple ever again OR that Apple's rules for sales don't apply to a situation like this.

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus off-contract pricing official

Releasing the iPhone 6 and its slightly larger sibling, the iPhone 6 Plus for Apple means pushing a new pricing structure on the world. While the past several releases for new iPhones meant simply replacing the top iPhone with a newer one, this time around it’s different. Things have gotten larger.

Will the iPhone 6 be easy to repair? iPhone 5C may know

Will the iPhone 6 be easy to repair? iPhone 5C may know

A recent teardown for the “new” iPod Touch shows that not much has changed with the complex manufacturing process. It’s still glued, still screwed, and still tough to open up. We took a second and compared some other Apple products, and referenced that against those iPhone 6 leaks we see popping up. Will the iPhone 6 be as tough to repair as other Apple devices like it?

Is Apple finally giving us the variety we want?

Is Apple finally giving us the variety we want?

One of the main complaints about Apple’s mobile ambitions over the years has been a lack of variety. For quite some time, we’ve had our shot at one submission in each category. A single phone, a solo tablet, and not enough variety to keep many users engaged. That’s been changing, and if rumors are true, will continue to. Is Apple finally getting the hint? If they are, let’s hope they’ve learned from past mistakes.
