An iPhone 5 will fit well in today's market

Concept by @appleidesigner

Yesterday my partner Pablo delighted us with his arguments against the rumored iPhone 5se, it was an article that as a reader I enjoyed reading, I was able to coincide with it in some aspects of its argumentation and even took a smile at seeing its absolute denial (which I share) towards the supposed name of this rumored device.

However and despite agreeing on some points, I decided to position myself in favor of this rumor and that is what I am going to do, in this opinion article I come to express my arguments about why the iPhone 5se (or how it is I finished calling) it's an iPhone that could fit in the market.

For some, size matters

Concept by @appleidesigner

Then we will think about the name, first let's focus on what it is; according to rumors it is a device the size of an iPhone 5 that will inherit the design that introduced the iPhone 6 but keeping 4 inches that many users like so much, and even if you don't believe it, there is a large user community that is not passionate about this tendency to re-enlarge our mobile devices, there are users who are satisfied with smartphones that can be managed with a single hand, smartphones no larger than our palm and that are comfortable to carry, small, simple, that serve as a smartphone and that's it, because to consume multimedia content, read, browse or enjoy web content from home you already have your iPad, and when they go out they want to carry something discreet, something that doesn't bother them in their pocket, something that doesn't attract attention, just a telephone.

And it is that 4 inches is not such a small size, think of you a few years ago, when we were going with the iPhone 4s down the street thinking "How good, with a finger I get anywhere on the screen", remember now your face to see that Apple presented a 4-inch iPhone 5, a longer iPhone, !PERFECT Many saw in the ideal size, rectangular (panoramic) screen that maintained that easy reach at any point of the screen and that could be carried and operated with one hand.

Since Apple introduced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus This "is over", with the iPhone 6 you can still make full use with one hand if we have expertise combining the precaution (so that we do not fall) and double tap on the Touch ID so that the interface drops when not we arrived, but with the iPhone 6 Plus this situation is unsustainable, and never better said, with a device of 5.5 inches and such a large size it is almost impossible to handle and hold with one hand (unless you are big-handed), and I say almost because I am sure that some can, but usually it is a phone that requires both hands for proper use.

This is precisely what some people long for, that maneuverability, that freedom of power manage EVERYTHING with just one hand, and this new device would be focused on these people, a market that does not update its terminal because they do not want to increase its size, a market that still carries the iPhone 5 or the 5s, devices with 4 or 2 years old because they refuse to give up what Steve Jobs once defended, being able to handle everything with one hand in his pocket.

The iPhone 5s must die

<p>Don't get me wrong dear iPhone 5s, you're a device <strong>powerful</strong>with a design <strong>beautiful</strong>, a smartphone that even today you can with everything you throw, a smartphone that made the same <strong>Qualcomm</strong> apologize for saying that the architecture of<strong> 64 bits</strong> in smartphones it was nonsense, a device that introduced <strong>Touch ID</strong>, which made the most passionate about technology jump from the chair to see how we could unlock our terminal just by placing your finger on the button, which introduced power, beauty, safety, innovation, many values ​​that still maintains today and that devices such as The iPhone 6s owe this one.</p>

But you are already 2 years old and you will soon be 3, and you are already crossing a line that Apple does not like, Apple lives sales and news is iOS, it is not feasible to continue selling in 2016 a device that was introduced in 2013, it is for this reason and others for what you have to give way to new generations.

Why is the iPhone 5se a good evolution of the iPhone 5s? Very simple, evolution, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s have presented very significant improvements inside that leave the iPhone 5s far behind (improvements that the user today will not notice significantly, but that over time will be noticeable), the A8 and A9 have improved a lot since that first 64-bit version (the A7), they have introduced the LPDDR4 Dual-Channel RAM offering greater bandwidth with lower consumption and better performance, they have adapted the MacBook storage controllers to mobile devices getting a performance comparable to that of a desktop SSD in a device the size of your pocket, figures that quadruple those that the iPhone 5s once had, cameras have improved, has introduced improvements in the motion coprocessor, new and more modern sensors, new materials, etc …

Now think about the following, the iPhone 5s today sells for € 500, a 3 years ago hardware sold at smartphone price of 2016Who in their right mind will be against changing an iPhone 5s for a new iPhone with A9 chip, LPDDR4 RAM, iPhone 6 camera, MIMO ac Wi-Fi chip, Bluetooth 4.2, barometer (M9 coprocessor), NFC And as icing on the cake, the brand new design of the iPhone 6 and the resistant materials of the iPhone 6s? And all this for … the same price.

If you had to buy a smartphone today (considering that the price would be the same), what would you buy, the Iphone 5s or the iPhone 5se? No need to answer, the answer is obvious.

Replace the iPhone 5s with a new and improved version of itself that offers an "" economic "" and modern option to those users who do not want to give up under any circumstances to their 4 inch screen It is a totally justified and intelligent movement, after all Apple is not going to sell anything that does not sell already, a 4-inch iPhone, and on top of that it is removed from continuing to manufacture a device with components that are no longer at the forefront of technology

The iPhone 5 will welcome iOS X

Sorry for the title, I love to believe that the next version of iOS will be called iOS X instead of iOS 10, a gesture that would come to scream with the rising fist that smartphones have already achieved the expected performance of a computer.

But in the case, a new iPhone opens the door to a new iOS, with this I do not come to say that the presentation of the new version of iOS will be advanced, the only thing I want to indicate is that with the hardware up to date , the software can accompany you, and neither the users nor Apple itself will allow it to be purchased today a device for € 500 and have such an expiration date. I insist, the iPhone 5s is almost 3 years old, I do not say that it will not be updated more, but how old does Apple think to keep it in the grill of updates? two? We are talking about Apple, not of any Android manufacturer, and giving good support to its products is not optional, it is mandatory, therefore, updating the components of your smaller device will allow you to provide 4-inch lovers a few years of iOS updates, and above all, a few more years of new functions that the system can withstand without a doubt.

With the iPhone 5se the family is completed

<p>Look at the picture <strong>It's not pretty?</strong> iPod Touch 6G, iPhone 5se, iPhone 6 / 6s, iPhone 6 Plus / 6s Plus, iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 3, iPad Pro.</p>

Have you visualized the list in your mind? One device for each person, one size for every need, guaranteed power in all of them. With a new iPhone at the lowest point of its line the family is completed again, all Apple devices with iOS are again at the forefront covering each and every one of the needs or tastes of the consumer, whatever the size of screen you want, want a more expensive iPhone or less (not cheaper, because an iPhone and cheap in the same sentence is a combination that is not intended to work).

Whatever the choice made, any device sold by Apple from the output of this new iPhone will be at the forefront of mobile technology, something that can not be missing in a large company like Apple, the most valuable in the world (it was short but intense, huh Alphabet?).

The battery will not be a problem

This point is rather my counter argument to my dear companion Pablo, in his post he argues that a smaller device will incorporate a smaller battery and therefore less autonomy, this is something that in my opinion is a half truth, is right to think that having less space the battery will be less, however its autonomy (like its battery) will go to proportion, I explain, the iPhone 6s Plus has a greater autonomy since it incorporates the same components as the iPhone 6s, however it has extra space and a slightly thicker thickness, this allows it with the same components to enjoy greater autonomy, however the iPhone 5 will be smaller and will have a smaller screen (surely a smaller resolution also due at its size, we would be talking about the resolution currently handled by the iPhone 5s), this added to the fact that its chip probably has a lower performance than its older brothers should allow its battery to be sufficiently capable of matching the autonomy of the iPhone 6 or 6s, it would be something like this:

Smaller screen surface to illuminate + Slightly lower performance + Lower number of pixels that the GPU should move = Lower battery capacity required.

Allow me to clarify something, many of you will have been disappointed to read "slightly lower performance", but this data must be taken with perspective, and I am talking about the GPU, GPU or graphics processing unit It is the chip that consumes the most in a mobile device, taking into account that this iPhone will have the resolution of the iPhone 5s (lower than that of the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus) it is logical to think that it will not need so much power to achieve the same results, that is, a GPU integrated in an A9 chip (with slightly lower performance) consume less energy and get the same level of fluidity on the screen than his older brothers, allowing an autonomy provided with the device and placing this new iPhone again among the top of the high-end.

If to this Apple adds optimization in its software to go according to an efficient hardware (something that Apple knows how to do well when it wants) and the energy saving mode, we have a device that reaches perfectly to the average, an iPhone that surely holds us all day without being reloaded and making normal use of it.

conclusion

Concept by @appleidesigner

A new 4-inch iPhone updated inside, with a design as recognized as the iPhone 6, with materials such as the iPhone 6s and priced at iPhone 5s would be a colossal success by Apple, not only would it withdraw a 3-year ballast from its catalog, but it would boost its sales again by recovering a sector of the market reluctant to update and without stealing sales from its older brothers, in addition to that, it would come to prepare the market for a new product, and with the presentation of the iPhone 7 the catalog could be as follows: iPhone 5se, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and finally iPhone 7 Plus.

Of course, all this does not mean that on March 15 a new iPhone will be presented, remember that they are rumors and that although we can believe in them or not, Nothing is said until Apple says it.

Who knows, maybe that extra “e” is due to iPhone 5s evolvedWhatever your name is, what is clear is that there will be an audience willing to accept it with open arms.

Place your bets, the survey will end on March 15 at 7:00 p.m. Spanish time (time at which Apple's keynotes usually begin), that same day we will see if Apple matches us or not, if you want to comment you can do it in the comments ????
