Apple is considering building a cheaper iPhone, but is not working on a long-rumored smaller iPhone handset often referred to as the “iPhone Nano,” according to a report in The New York Times. The NYT report says that Apple is considering “ways to broaden the appeal of the iPhone by making the popular device less expensive.”
The report, which is based on information from anonymous sources who have been “briefed on Apple’s plans,” says that the company has no plans to make more than one iPhone model at a time. Instead, Apple is looking at ways to attract new iPhone users by offering a device that can be controlled by voice. The company also is considering using different internal components to lower the price of the iPhone.
The next-generation iPhone is expected to be unveiled this summer.
