Earlier this week we heard a rumor that Apple was working on a smaller version of the iPhone to appeal to the budget market, the iPhone Mini, at the time I was a little skeptical about this rumor as it is something we hear every year when a new iPhone is due for release.
Now the New York Times is reporting that Apple is not working on the iPhone Mini, instead they are putting all their efforts into producing the iPhone 5 and iPad 2.
To be honest I think that NYT are right, and the previous rumors are just that rumors, and we wont see a smaller iPhone, the iPhone mini announced at the same time as the iPhone 5.
This doesn’t mean we wont see one in the future, and Apple could be working on one at the moment, but the rumored iPhone Mini is supposed to use Apple’s cloud service for streaming content.
We suspect that Apple will announce their cloud service first, which could come with the rumored MobileMe update that we have been hearing about, if Apple are working on a smaller iPhone I suspect it will be a while before it is announced, although I could be wrong.
