As it was reported earlier this week, Apple may be planning to change its usual product update cycle and release new iPhones much earlier than in September of 2016.

According to the latest report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is planning to release a smaller 4-inch iPhone in early 2016.

However, there will be no 3D Touch display. As noted by the analyst, because of the strong demand for a 4-inch device, next year, the company may sell as many as 20-30 million units of the updated smartphone.

Just like it was announced by Tim Cook last week, Apple has just started accepting the pre-orders for the fourth-generation Apple TV.

Apple has just announced the current iOS 9 adoption rate. According to the data based on the App Store usage, the most-recent version of Apple’s operating system for iPhones and iPads is installed on 61% of active devices.

Aside from releasing iOS 9.1 to users worldwide, Apple has also released OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan.
