Conflicting reports leave existence of ‘iPhone 6c’ a mystery

Well-known leaker Evan Blass tweeted yesterday that an iPhone 6c will be arriving concurrently with the upcoming iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, but new information from mobile marketing company Fiksu may fly in the face of that prediction. Fiksu’s web logs have turned up two new iPhone models — designated “iphone8,1” and iphone 8,2” — being used to access a range of popular travel, gaming and lifestyle apps. The company notes that these identifiers don’t match what the phones will be called once they’re released to the public, since the current iPhone 6 is designated “iphone 7,2” and the iPhone 6 Plus is designated “iphone 7,1” within that naming convention. The fact that Fiksu only found two new iPhone models being tested lends more credibility to previous rumors that the iPhone 6c won’t be coming until at least next year, if at all. Alleged photos of an iPhone 6c casing made news in March, but since then speculation has been all over the map, with some claiming that an iPhone 6c is coming this year and others saying Apple isn’t building one.
