The iPhone 6C, Apple’s rumoured cheaper new take on its smartphone, may not launch this autumn after all.
The rumour mill was sent into overdrive earlier this week when renowned tech watcher Evan Blass reignited chatter that Apple could be launching the plastic handset alongside the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
Now though, new data from Fiksu, a mobile app marketing service that analyses the types and models of phones that use its service, says it’s only seen two new Apple handsets used in recent weeks.
iPhone 8,1 and iPhone 8,2 are the only unknown Apple devices in its logs. Those numbers follow last year’s iPhone 7,1 for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 7,2 for the iPhone 6 Plus.
Not testing a phone ahead of launch seems highly unlikely, meaning that Blass may not have been on-the-money with his information regarding the iPhone 6C.
Apple is expected to reveal its new iPhones at an event on September 9th. The Cupertino company may also unveil new iPads and an updated Apple TV set top box using its iOS platform.
