Apple’s long-rumored budget iPhone will have the same 4-inch screen as the iPhone 5, according to AppleInsider. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities says that Apple will stick with “iPhone mini” designs that were first approved in 2011. He stated that the company is “unlikely to abruptly change” this even though the market is moving towards larger screens. The analyst also said that the budget iPhone will include “super-thin plastic mixed with glass fiber,” and come in multiple colors.
