Apple Planning Cheaper Version Of iPhone 4
Reuters reported on Tuesday that Apple will be manufacturing a cheaper version of its iPhone 4.
The report cited two people familiar with the situation as sources who said the lower-priced iPhone 4 would feature a smaller 8 gigabyte flash drive.
Apple currently only offers a 16 gigabyte and 32 gigabyte iPhone 4, which were both launched in 2010.
Reuters said the 8 gigabyte iPhone 4 is expected to launch within weeks.
Other reports have claimed that Apple is planning on launching a next generation iPhone sometime in the fall.
Mac Rumors reported on Monday that possible iPhone 5 parts have surfaced, including an iPhone 5 battery and camera.
Another report by Boy Genius Report said AT&T vice president told the tech website that the company confirmed to some employees that the next generation smartphone by Apple will be released in early October this year.
Beyond the iPhone rumors, Apple also made headlines on Monday with reports that the company is planning a new Mac product line.
Japanese site Macotakara said that the company is preparing a new Mac line-up that is completely different from current products.
The same report said that because of how different the new Mac line will be, new product names would be given.
