With a few weeks to go until Apple unveils the future of its iOS and OS X operating systems, several details have already been leaked about the upcoming releases. One of the most interesting features detailed in recent reports concerns iOS 9, as Apple is apparently working to make it run much more smoothly on older iPhones and iPads.
The oldest devices that iOS 8 can run on are the iPhone 4s and iPad 2, although many people who own either model have complained of several performance and battery issues affecting their devices since installing iOS 8. Some were able to switch back to iOS 7 last fall, but many others have been stuck with laggy performance on their devices.
We could see an iPhone 6C this year, but you might be disappointed with its spec.
In September 2014, Apple launched not one but two new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but the 2013 iPhone 5C didn’t get an update. The success of the iPhone 5C is the subject of much debate, and therefore begs the question: will Apple ever make an iPhone 6C? Here, we explore the evidence to decide whether an iPhone 6C is coming in 2015.
Latest: The iPhone 6C has been spotted on Apple’s website. At least it looks a lot like an iPhone 6C because it sports a Touch ID fingerprint sensor which the iPhone 5C doesn’t have. Read on to find out more.
A possible mess-up in an early uploading of images to Apple’s store website reveals a new iPhone. This newest iPhone would – more than likely – be called the iPhone 6c, adding a Touch ID sensor to the already colorful iPhone 5c. This previous model replaced the iPhone 4s as the lowest-end iPhone of the bunch, coming with a plastic backing in several bright colors instead of a metal back. The release of the iPhone 5c also effectively ended the reign of the 3.5-inch display on all iPhones.
The images you’re about to see come from what The Guardian suggests are screen captures from Apple.com. We cannot independently verify the validity of these screenshots because – as you’ll be able to see for yourself in a minute – the Apple Store online does not host the image as we see here.
