Following the rumours of China Mobile confirming Samsung Galaxy S7 yesterday, now it appears that Apple’s rumoured 4-inch iPhone will make an appearance in April 2016, or so they claimed.
This is not the first time that rumours have been going around about the 4-inch iPhone, previously we also covered two rumoured news of it releasing in February or March 2016, along with the next generation Apple Watch. Another name for the 4-inch iPhone was also called the “iPhone 6c”, which is rumoured to be modeled after the Apple iPhone 5s and be equipped with the same A9 processor from the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Recently a new research report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo surfaced, with plans about Apple’s 2016 iPhone launches, including the rumoured A9-based 4-inch iPhone and a 3GB RAM iPhone 7 Plus.
According to this report Apple has a new 4-inch iPhone in the making that has a similar design to the iPhone 5s. Although equipped with an A9 processor, it will not include 3D Touch support like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. This is to keep the two products as their own. Apple aims to release the new product in the first half next year and could ship 20-30 million units through the end of 2016.

Although Apple's latest releases, the Apple iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus have been popular right from the start, their older plastic sibling, the iPhone 5C hasn't seen the same popularity and may be discontinued. Be that as it may, a new report says that Apple is planning to release a smaller 4-inch display iPhone by Q2 2015. The compact form factor has always been Apple's motto, until it succumbed to consumer demand and released the new iPhone 6 models. Even the smallest device of the two, the iPhone 6, measures 4.7 inches in size, which is much bigger than any of the iPhones released to date. Given that the earlier iPhones too were quite popular among buyers, there must be a number of users who were disappointed to see a larger Apple device. According to the supply chain sources of the company, a smaller 4 inch iPhone is in the works aimed at the compact phone lovers and women who would want a phone which can be operated with just hand. Moreover, this phone can be the ideal candidate to replace the fading iPhone 5C. Unfortunately, there are no tech specs, Malaysia release dates or pricing details about this 4-inch iPhone, but make sure you check back to the website for additional information in the coming weeks.

For those not in the know (or aren't an Apple iOS developer) then know this, Apple's iOS 7 beta 4 has been released. Apart from the new features and bug fixes, going through the change log confirms a new fingerprint scanner for the upcoming Apple iPhone 5S. This was found by developer Hamza Sood who discovered a folder labeled "BiometricKitUI". This folder contained script which described processes that show a fingerprint scanner in action. This included statements like "a person holding an iPhone with their left hand while touching the Home button with their thumb" or "A fingerprint that changes colour during the setup process". This would be a definite change from the norm as most 'S' upgrades to the Apple iPhone have largely been software and not hardware related.

Apple has always been more about their optimized software or operating system than other smartphone or device makers, so it comes as no surprise that the main reveal of WWDC 2013 was iOS 7. Coming with many new features, the new operating system will be available in Q3 (probably around August), for Apple iPhone 5 users. Developers and those with access can download the beta through the developer portal.
