It is said that the next iPhone will have a bigger screen, but what if that doesn’t happen? Apple isn’t really the company that follows the trends; rather it’s the one that sets them with other players copying their strategy.
Apple fanboys are notorious for defending their Apple gear. If their iPhone or MacBook freezes, it’s not a big deal; at the same time, they are quick to point out how other devices don’t work out-of-box. In that sense, many of them say they “don’t need a bigger screen” on their iPhone, but I’m sure they’ll be quick to change their mind the second a bigger iPhone is announced, suddenly forgetting just how pocketable their iPhone 5S/5C is.
But again, what if Apple sticks to the 4-inch screen? I said it before and I’m saying it again, if Cook & Co. launch a 4.7-inch or bigger iPhone, I may be willing to switch to iOS. But if they don’t – I’m sticking to Android. What I call “The Sum Of All Fears” is to completely go against trends and stick with the petite design.
I don’t think Apple will do that but it could launch both the big and small/regular iPhone, the latter of which may end-up being known as iPhone Mini. I believe that would be the winning strategy that would lead to another record-breaking year for the company. What do you think?
