Some of these market prognosticators have a terrible record predicting what Apple will announce next. Here’s one that does, and one that does not. Lisa Eadicicco:
The Cupertino, Calif. firm is expected to hold an event on or around March 15, during it will introduce a new smaller iPhone, among other gadgets.
That’s what Mark Gurman says and he’s often right.
Apple is reportedly planning to release a new 4-inch iPhone that would replace the iPhone 5s. The new small handset would be called the iPhone 5se… This new iPhone would bring some of Apple’s latest features to that smaller form factor, such as Apple Pay, support for Live Photos, a better processor, and an improved camera.
I see this more as a pricing and migration product to set the low end, entry-level as a small device with slightly lesser features to compare against the high end devices with more features and a larger price tag.
Analyst Gene Munster’s record for predictions isn’t as good.
We think it will be called the iPhone 7c and will be available this fall.
Along with the new Apple television, of course.
