A new report from Chinese news site Feng.com, however, cites supply chain sources who claim the 4-inch iPhone isn’t going to happen.
The supply chain sources claim that Apple hasn’t submitted any “production tasks” relating to a smaller iPhone, calling the rumours of a smaller iPhone “hype.”

Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus introduced larger 4.7-inch and 5-inch displays, which left fans of Apple’s older phones without an option for a smaller phone. Now it sounds like those holding out for a smaller iPhone 6S shouldn’t hold their breath.
