I think $450 could work and perhaps the $550 price is just the one with larger storage.  All new iPhone base models start at about $650 so this would be $200 cheaper. This could allow carriers to offer it for free or possibly $100 with a subsidy. A brand new Apple iPhone for $450 is still close enough to mid-tier levels that it could sell very well.    It makes sense that they want to ditch the 3.5" and 30 pin and go exclusively with 4" and lightning. I see the...
I always wondered what would happen if Apple bought Yahoo and distanced them from using Bing for search and created a true rival to Google for search that used their own search engine . It would immediately get a lot of use as the default on all iOS and OS X devices. It would certainly effect Google's revenue with so much of it coming from iOS users. Apple never seems to want to do big M&A's and prefer smaller companies but that would be very interesting. Google...
It has taken many years but I have finally converted my entire immediate and extended family as well as most of my friends to Apple products. My cousin had a 4 year old Dell that recently died. Turns out it was a bad power supply and a bad monitor. She was concerned about a lot of Microsoft office documents she wanted to save, many of which were important family medical, tax, financial records. They bought a 27" iMac. After the Delll was repaired she asked me about...
Who would buy an iPhone E where the E stands for entry? very unlikely 
But that would only work if they are different sized screens. It seems likely they would both be 4". 
Very unlikely. I think they will reserve the Pro name for a larger screen iPhone. Plus it would add confusion since this year you have an iPhone 5 and the replacement is simply iPhone but with lower specs. They would need to call it "Air" or some other clever name. 
  If they only go with 2 lines as you suggest and keep the 4" as their cheaper model I doubt they would only release a 4.5" version. I would expect it to be between 4.7" and 5". That is just not a big enough change from 4" in my opinion. It wouldn't satisfy people that want a larger iPhone and it would make people that think 4" is already big enough angry as well.  I think they would need 2 pro versions one at 4" like now and another at about 4.8" along with a cheaper 4"....
  I think the vast majority of people use a case so it really doesn't matter a great deal what it looks like or what it is made of at the end of the day since it will likely be in a case. 
I am curious how the names will change if they make a more affordable and possibly a larger screen iPhone as well by next year while keeping the current model. They will all be called iPhone but the new ones will probably have an extra part in their name. Maybe the larger one will be called iPhone Pro or iPhone+. The more affordable one will be tougher to name since it will likely have a 4" display just like current iPhone. 
Yes the details and facts in this article are very dubious. But I think it is highly likely that Apple will offer a more affordable iPhone. The normal iPhone will likely have 2GB ram and more storage and other advantages like a faster CPU/GPU. Apple knows they need a mid range phone to expand and there is still plenty of room for a nice fat margin. I expect it to cost around $450 off contract with no subsidies.
