Chinese news website Feng.com claims Apple has no plans to go back to a smaller, 4-inch iPhone in 2015 as some reports last month suggested.

Feng, who says it has knowledge directly from Apple’s supply chain, reports that 4-inch iPhone reports were just hype, and there wasn’t much credibility behind them. Furthermore, the publication says Apple has not made any new “production tasks” for a 4-inch handset.

It’s a bit early to start the rumor-mill for 2015’s line of iPhones, but it would make sense that Apple wouldn’t mess up its fall iPhone release cycle it’s stuck to in recent years. Right now, customers also have the option to go back and buy the 4-inch iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

Conflicting Feng last month – and also citing sources in the Asian supply chain – analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company said Apple will launch the new 4-inch iPhone in 2015, and it will likely feature specs similar to the iPhone 5s. Additionally, the phone will sport improved internals, and a curved design akin to the iPhone 6.

Sigh.

    Even after my mom got the iphone 6 there’s no way she could back the the tiny iphone 5 and she has small hands that iphone 5 just looks like a little toy iphone next the the 6 and 6+

  • Jamessmooth

    No way. Why would they go back to a 4″ screen? Demand wasn’t high enough for the 6?
    Oh, and it’s never too early to start the rumor mill 😀

    • As much as folks love their big screens there are still a small group that want small phones. Cheap, good, small Phones.

        I wouldn’t say small, I doubt the majority want a huge phone.

    I don’t want to sound like a iPhone 6+ “fanboy” but at fist I felt like the 6+ was too big and it ended up being that the case I had on it was too bulky “I was using the Ringke Fusion” and I used to get cramps holding the phone with one hand. Now I got the Ringke Slim case and this phone feels amazing in your hand almost like no case at all. Long story short I held my girlfriends iPhone 6 “Which I was considering returning my 6+ for and downgrading to it” and the phone felt like it gets totally lost in my hand. I think Apple should of gone slightly bigger for the 6 in my opinion. So when I hold my moms 5’s I would barely even type on it now it really feels like a nano phone. Sorry for my novel lol.

    Bring the specs of the 6 or the 6 plus to or the specs of the 6s and 6s plus with a 4 inch screen and they would be more popular then the 5c cause they are a lot of people with small hands

  • Bugs Bunnay

    we’ll see it when we see it.

  • Andres

    We’ll find out at the iPhone keynote. Just listen for the “One last thing” part.

  • @dongiuj

    Good

    A 4,5 inch same body as iphone6 with smaller bezells, no camera Linz stickning out and no ugly plastig lines at the back 2 GB ram 12 mp CAM etc is my dreamphone

    Ok personality I think they are going to produce another 4″ phone because the 6 and 6+ can’t even fit in your pocket. It’s ridiculous and so inconvenient. I’m a guy and I know how girls are always complaining about the small pockets of their jeans so for them it’s even more inconvenient.

    • Aaron

      Girls have small pockets in their jeans so they have to buy handbags. Conspiracy!!! But due to this most have found ways around lack of pocket space so a slightly bigger phone isn’t as much an issue for them as you’d think.

  • George

    That’s sad considering the 4 inch phone was perfect for a lot of people.

  • Donovan

    Too bad, gotta search for another brand that keeps making 4″ phones. Nokia maybe?

    I am using the 6 Plus for about a month now and all I can say is I am getting used to it already. Installed HandyKey via Cydia and now typing with one hand is flawless. Coupled with Reachability its really that simple to use a 5.5 incher. It fits nicely in most of my jean and to summarize it I’m happy with the 6 Plus

  • InfinitePlusOne

    I actually like 6+, now I want even bigger phone.

  • christodouluke

    That’s a shame. I know a lot of people for who a screen larger than 4″ simply isn’t practical.
