RBC Capital Markets analyst Amit Daryanani on Tuesday cast some doubt on a report that says Apple will take longer to roll out substantial iPhone updates.
On Tuesday, Nikkei Asian Review reported the tech giant plans to release full-model upgrades once every three years, extending the current two-year cycle. Apple did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
That report points to a number of items that have been validated by numerous sources, Daryanani said. Those include that the coming iPhone 7 will have the same form factor as the previous model, and any updates will be largely incremental.
