After the lack of success with the iPhone 5c, many thought that Apple would stop trying to sell iPhones in the less-than-premium segments. But, if a new image from Apple's own site is accurate, it looks like they are going to try again with an updated low(er) priced phone.
Found within the company's own UK-based iPhone Accessories store, a photo of a colorized iPhone looking like the iPhone 5C was found sitting on a lightning charging cradle. When looking closer, one would notice that the phone was different in one way from the 5C: the home button on the displayed device appeared to have the Touch ID found on the current iPhone 6 & 6 Plus. This photo was quickly replaced with a current iPhone 5C image, but not before site visitors caught on and shared the photo.
The rumor has been that this smaller, budget-minded iPhone is in the works that would not only include Apple's Touch ID, but would sport a 4" screen, dual-LED flash and pack Apple's A7 CPU. This device could potentially be priced well underneath the usual $599 off-contract price for new flagship iPhones.
Apple will likely update the iPhone lineup later this year with "S" versions of the 6/6 Plus, and a new budget smartphone series from Apple could boost iPhone adoption, giving low-end Android and Windows Phone handsets extra competition.
