• Case Makers place early bet on Apple 'iPhone 6c'



    A new iPhone is a multi-million dollar business opportunity that leaves manufacturers racing to prepare updated models based on rumors and hearsay which can jeopardise a fair bit of business.

    As you may already know through rumours, Apple is highly likely to reveal a new 4-inch iPhone at some point in 2016 and some believe the so-called "iPhone 6c" or "iPhone 5se," depending who you ask will resemble an iPhone 5s, while adopting the rounded glass found on the iPhone 6. This group notably includes well-connected Taiwanese analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

    A few mistakes have been made in the past by accessory makers which have lost out by betting on form factors that never saw the light of day, making this a risky proposition. In 2011, Hard Candy ordered $50,000 worth of production molds based on a rumored design for the device that would eventually become the quite rectilinear iPhone 4s.

    Case-Mate prepped for an iPhone 4s with a "completely different form factor" and "extended home button" at the same time, though it's unknown if that company followed through with the same tooling orders as its competition.
