The general consensus on the current state of iOS is that Apple's mobile operating system has stagnated somewhat, and there's certainly a considerable amount of more interest than usual with regards to what exactly Apple is cooking up this time around. In addition, several sources have suggested Apple will also be bringing a budget iPhone at some point in the very near future, and resident concept maker Martin Hajek has once again come through with another rather interesting "iPhone mini" design, which also incorporates a rather enlarged iOS interface by Dámaso Benítez.
Concept videos are a dime a dozen at the best of times, but when everyone knows that a new iPhone is just a few short months away, things tend to heat up. Everyone with a passing interest in design and Apple seems to want to throw together a concept video or produce some renders that show what the next handset may or may not look like. We see them, and we move on.
During an interview with Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi, Apple's Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook hinted at a new, cheaper iPhone on the horizon, writes Business Insider.
Recently, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and CultofMac all weighed in from their different sources about iPhone nano / mini rumors which according to them would launch alongside the next iPhone in summer this year.
