The much-talked about 4-inch iPhone 6c, earlier rumoured to launch this year, is now expected to arrive in March. Besides, the company is also planning to pull the covers off the Apple Watch 2.
Citing sources related to the matter, a 9To5Mac report states that Apple Watch 2 and 4-inch iPhone 6c are expected to launch at an event in March. The Watch would then start shipping by April. It should be noted that the first gen Apple Watch had started shipping in April this year.
The report further adds that Apple had started developing technologies for future Apple Watch models even before the first generation started shipped. With the secnd-gen device, user can expect a new camera, sleep tracking, and health sensor technologies. However, it is still unclear which of these new technologies would be incorporated in the Watch 2.
The iPhone 6c is another highly anticipated device that proves Apple’s love for smaller displays isn’t over yet. It is aimed at Apple fans who still prefer a smaller display. Specs-wise, it is said to be somewhere between iPhone 5s and iPhone 6s, adds the report.
Analysts predict that the device will be a mix of iPhone 5s, 5c and 6s. Last month, KGIanalyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for accurate Apple predictions, had also said that Apple is working on a refreshed 4-inch iPhone model. Kuo had added that the 6c will be positioned as a budget device during its launch in the first half of 2016 and the company is likely to ship between 20 million and 30 million units by the end of the year.
