Rumors and speculations about the newest iPhone

Multiple versions of iPhone

Some of analytics believe that Apple may release at least three different versions of newest iPhone. In principle it is possible but goes not in a line with Apple policies.

Camera improvement

There are also quite reasonable expectations on improvement of cameras.

Budget iPhone

Release of the badget smartphone may help to compete with rapidly growing Android based devices. But such a device may negatively impact sales of premium class Apple devices. The reputation of the premium class manufacturer helps Apple to lead on the market of expensive smartphones.
Release of the budget iPhone may destroy Appleā€™s price strategy. Prices on all other Apple devices will remain high in contrast with the budget version. Such misbalance will definitely impact sales of premium Apple devices.
Taking into account all of the above mentioned it is unlikely that Apple will take such risk. The release of iPad mini just confirmed that this is not very good strategy for the company. iPad mini sales are growing but sales of the original iPad is dropping down quickly reducing the profitability.
