“What else will be in the new iPhone and iPad? Will it contain WiFi or the faster LiFi or some permutation thereof that doubles the range of connectivity while using less power? There’s always a surprise feature or so in any Apple device,” said Susan Schreiner, an analyst at C4 Trends.com.
“The rumored iPhone fills a sweet spot that Apple missed when it introduced the iPhone 6 in terms of size. While there was a pent-up demand for a larger screen smartphone, there still is a huge population that prefers the convenience of the smaller screen to a larger screen,” Schreiner told the E-Commerce Times.
