CALIFORNIA – A few years ago, in 2011, to be exact, there were rumors circulating that Apple was working on the iPhone Nano.
The iPhone is smaller and cheaper than the flagship model at the time, the iPhone 4. However, until now Apple has never released the phone.
It turned out that the rumors were true and were revealed via an email sent by former Apple CEO Steve Jobs.
Jobs’ email was revealed through a collection of emails in a legal case between Epic and Apple.
Apparently the email containing the idea of the iPhone nano was an agenda item for a strategy meeting that was sent in October 2010, but unfortunately there isn’t much detailed information in it.
Reporting from The Verge, Saturday (21/8) the email contains points such as ‘iPhone nano plan’, with sub-points below about ‘cost goals’ and sub-points about ‘Jony’.
Jony in question is likely referring to former Apple design boss Jony Ive, who will show off a model or render of the iPhone nano.
The “2011 Strategy” point also has a sub-point that says ‘make an affordable iPhone model based on the iPod touch to replace the 3GS, but it’s not known whether that point refers to the iPhone nano or not.
