It’s been less than three months since Apple unveiled its iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but rumours suggest the firm is gearing up for its next release already.
虽然iPhone 6和6 Plus发布至今还不满3个月，近日有传闻指出，苹果公司已经在着手准备下一代iPhone产品了。
Reports say Apple may hold two iPhone launch events next year, to release its iPhone 6S in spring, and its iPhone 7 in September.
The iPhone 6S may even go on sale at the same time as Apple’s upcoming Watch.
The claims were made by ‘sources in the supply chain’ to Jerry Miller from Stabley Times.
Until 2013, Apple released one handset each year around September time.
This included a new model one year, followed by a slightly modified 'S-version' the year after.
Last year, however, it used its September launch event to announce two new devices - its flagship iPhone 5S and the ‘cheaper’ iPhone 5C.
但去年，在9月的发布会上，苹果公司一举推出了两款新设备：旗舰版iPhone 5S和价格相对便宜的iPhone 5C。
This was followed by the launch of its iPhone 6 and larger iPhone 6 Plus this year.
而这一变化在2014年得到了延续。在今年的iPhone新品发布会上，苹果推出了iPhone 6和更大的6 Plus。
The new schedule is expected to stagger the releases of two devices in 2015 to capitalise on sales.
Apple could release the iPhone 6S to people who want to upgrade to a slightly cheaper model, before announcing its flagship iPhone 7 in the autumn.
在明年秋季推出旗舰款iPhone 7前，苹果公司会先发布iPhone 6S，其用户群是那些想换一部稍微便宜些手机的用户。
The 6S may also be packaged together with the Apple Watch.
iPhone 6S也可能和Apple Watch打包销售。
‘Our source says that Apple is hesitant about launching the iWatch in the spring of 2015 without a new iPhone to go along with it,’ explained Mr Miller. [This] could give hesitant consumers an excuse to wait on buying both until the fall.’
The news comes as manufacturers revealed Apple has plans to kill off its iPhone 5C as early as next summer.
