We have聽NEWS for iPhone lovers. Looks like Apple鈥檚 plans to revive the聽C-series of iPhone and return to the four-inch handset are growing more concrete by the day as we approach the iPhone 6C鈥檚 rumored release in April. According to Cult of Mac, the iPhone 6C promises to be waaaaay better than the iPhone 5C from days of yore.


Chinese tech site聽MyDrivers reports that claims聽coming straight from Foxconn employees in China聽(only they鈥檙e calling it the iPhone 7C)聽state that the iPhone 6C is currently already being produced in small quantities聽with Apple planning on ramping up production in the new year. The report also states that based on the touch and feel of the new handset, it鈥檚 similar in shape and size as the 5S 鈥 it comes in the metal-body color options as well. According to聽MyDrivers,聽鈥渋f you had it in your hand and didn鈥檛 say anything, you would think you it was the 5S.鈥


Yup, bye-bye to the candy colored plastic cases of the past.聽Now for the good part. The聽iPhone 6C will have a bigger battery. Claims say the phone will come with a 1,642-mAh battery, as compared to the聽iPhone 5s鈥 1,570-mAh battery. Aside from the A9 processor (same as the iPhone 6S), it鈥檒l also come with 2GB of RAM, a聽4K camera聽and聽Touch ID.

Here comes the bad part. The iPhone 6C, like its fellow iPhones, will start at 16GB of storage 鈥 and with an eight million pixel camera, it鈥檚 like asking for that 鈥渘ot enough available storage鈥 notification. But here鈥檚 the even sadder news:聽MyDriver聽reports that the starting cost of the iPhone 6C is going to be over $460 a piece. Yikes! That鈥檚 steep. But then again, the 5C was listed at $549 starting, though that number dropped to $99 with a two-year wireless agreement and carriers are moving aways from subsidizing phone costs with contracts. 聽You could always upgrade with Apple鈥檚 own upgrade program.

Either way, keeping up with tech is an expensive game these days.
