This one seems a little less believable than much of what we’ve read, but here it goes: Apple supposedly wants to update the iPhone several times a year. This comes from Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty.
This would offer more frequent product updates and flexible pricing. That doesn’t sound all that likely, to be honest.
Interestingly, though, is that Huberty did meet with Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer. They may not have said anything specific, but there may have been enough there to get the impression that Apple wants to do something like this. Huberty mentions that Apple could expand the use of Touch ID. Though that’s not insight so much as it is common-sense. That’s like saying Apple wants to make a phone better than the iPhone 5S next year.
