As 2015 is coming to an end, rumours of the so called Apple “iPhone 6c” and Apple iPhone 7 have not. And we just got some new rumours on what Apple might have in stored for us in the future.
First up, Commercial Times reported that the iPhone 7 could actually be waterproof. They claimed that Apple is working and developing some kind of “new compound materials” that would replace the iPhone 7’s antenna, which also means the possibility of removing the bands from the current iPhone generation’s back. Not only that, the 3.5mm headphone jack could also be replaced by an all-in-one Lightning connector port.

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.

So according to the Wall Street Journal, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are to be released early next year and will feature a pressure-sensitive display on their new device. If you think the feature sounds familiar, it is...because it’s basically like a 3D Touch from the Apple iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and the Huawei Mate S.
If this is true, then the reason why Samsung is doing so is to compete with Apple next year. As you may be aware, rumours have it that Apple is planning the “iPhone 6c” along with the second generation of Apple Watch some time in March. Whereas Samsung could announce the new Galaxy series at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona around February.

So according to 9to5mac.com, Apple is planning to reveal both the new Apple Watch and a 4-inch “Apple iPhone 6c” on March next year. This is not the first time that Apple has done an event on March, as they unveiled the 12-inch Macbook, a ResearchKit iPhone framework and the first generation Apple Watch in last year’s March. Apple also introduced the world with their first AppleiPad with Retina display in March 2012.

About a month ago, we covered that Apple could be working on a 4-inch Apple iPhone powered by an A9 chip and 3GB RAM early next year. The rumour is quite shady on this, but according to a Chinese website Techweb they claimed that the "iPhone 6c" could be made of metal, has a fingerprint sensor on it and does not feature 3D Touch.
This actually tallies well with the previous speculation, as the sources are from anonymous “Foxconn insiders” stating that Apple might reveal the device in January then going on retail sale the month after that. It could also cost between $400 - $500 (around RM1690 - RM2112) since theiPhone 5c 16GB model started at $549 (RM2319.66).

While the Apple iPhone 6 is expected sometime in September 2014, many are saying that it will take design cues from the current Apple iPhone 5C. With that in mind, designer Martin Hajek has come out with some interesting concept renders for the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6c. While they look good, we think that the iPhone 6s concept render is too much of a drastic departure (especially the rounded corners) from the current design for it to be realistic. Check it out for yourself in this article.

We've already seen a curved Samsung Galaxy S5 concept so now it is Apple's turn with a curved glass concept render of the Apple iPhone 6C. Coming courtesy of SET Solution who have dreamed up a number of other concept renders it also comes with a concept render for the Apple iPhone Air. Taking the same super thin and narrow design as the Apple iPad mini, this concept looks simply awesome on the iPhone with a proposed 1.5mm to 3mm thinness and 70g weight. While this sounds very breakable, it could probably be achieved with a flexible plastic substrate and a wireless, no port design. Obviously, neither of these two concept renders are officially endorsed by Apple but it is nice to dream so check out the videos in this article.
