Apple NEXT BIG THING is consistently the subject of rumour on the internet. No sooner has the latest model been released than speculation surrounding the next appears. The iPhone 6 name appeared before the iPhone 5S even launched, with some reports believing the 5S would be called the 6. This of course turned out not to be the case.
Apple iPhone 6 release date
Below are different source of rumour regarding the release date of iPhone 6
- Starting off the speculation in November 2013 was a report from Bloomberg suggesting we would see two handsets introduced by Apple, both of which would be available in the second half of the 2014. That’s a safe bet, because it follows the patten of previous launch events.
- Chinese analyst Sun Changxu also predicted there would be two handsets arriving from Apple this year, although claimed one would arrive in June at WWDC, and the other in September. Rumours of an “earlier” release of a new iPhone have been common in past years. It’s never actually happened, so we continue to be sceptical.
- According to a newer report from Chinese web portal Tencent, which cited inside sources, Apple will look to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 on 19 September. However, various Chinese media reports, which also cited inside sources, have claimed Apple will announced the iPhone 6 on 15 September, ahead of a launch on 25 September.
iPhone 6 Display & Design Rumours
According to report coming out of china from an insiders who talked with C Technology, says the company is already testing an iPhone 6 prototype with a 4.9-inch display. WHILE a report from The Wall Street Journal suggested that Apple is currently testing new iPhone designs that include screens as large as 6 inches as development of its next-generation iPhone model for 2014 kicks into high gear. 🙂
Images appeared on Chinese social network Weibo in January of what some believe to be the casing of the iPhone 6. If they are genuine, it would suggest the iPhone 6 will come with a ultra-thin build.
While the images below don’t clearly show the difference, many recent reports have indicated the iPhone 6 will be much thinner than the current iPhone 5S, possibly between 6mm and 7mm, and closer in thickness to the iPod touch. For reference: the iPhone 5S has a thickness of 7.6mm, while the iPod Touch is 6.1mm thick.
iPhone 6 Prototype
Do you want to see an iPhone 6 prototype being dropped by a Russian? Check out the video below or HERE.
Of all the odd things we’ve seen or read about the iPhone 6, this Russian language YouTube video probably the most peculiar. Not only is a video starring an alleged iPhone 6 prototype handset – of what origin we haven’t a clue – but the presenter then proceeds to chuck it around to show how damaged it gets when dropped.
iPhone 6 Pictures
Via Nowhereelse Designer Martin Hajek posted a gorgeous 3D of Apple’s Yet-to-Release iPhone 6 design.with a Touch ID home button. The power button is relocated to the right side of the device from its previous top side position, while the volume buttons are more similar to iPod touch volume rockers than button design in existing iPhone models.

iPhone 6 Specifications & Features
Rumours surrounding the hardware specs of the iPhone 6 have been thin on the ground in terms of processor, storage or battery capacity.The smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6, that’s anticipated, will come with 32GB and 64GB options. Neither will have a 16GB option as this, apparently, is being done away with.
Reports have also suggested Samsung is hard at work on Apple’s next-generation processor, which unsurprisingly has been dubbed the A8. If the handset does launch with a new processor, this should also mean an improved battery life, hopefully. 🙂
There has been a bit more talk surrounding the camera, with a 13-megapixel camera sensor by Sony thrown into the mix, as well as more recently, Chinese website IT168 claiming the “next-generation iPhone” will be coming with a 10-megapixel snapper featuring an aperture of f/1.8 and an improved filter.
When it comes to software, it’s almost certain the new iPhone will come with iOS 8, announced at WWDC 2014 and scheduled for release in autumn, the same time we’d predict the iPhone 6 to launch.
There are a number of UI and feature updates, included improvement to Siri, better notifications options, including widgets and a closer alignment with OS X Yosemite, the Mac software.
No device sees more speculation than the iPhone. Some of the rumours are started for the sake of attention and attracting traffic. Some are legitimate leaks from those in the supply chain. Somewhere between the two, deep in the mix, the real details lie.
We would like to believe the iPhone 6 will at least arrive with a larger display than the current 4-inches, and 4.7 seems like a safe step.mAn improved camera, processor and battery is guaranteed, but whether the camera will remain at 8-megapixels and add some features, or increase to 10-megapixels or higher is anybody’s guess.
We would expect to see a redesign of the handset based on the release pattern of Apple’s previous iPhones, but we suspect the Touch ID will remain a central part of it.
What I do know for sure is that these rumours will continue to circulate until the official device is released, so I will keep you posted on the most recent weird, whacky and wonderful rumours surrounding the iPhone 6 as they happen.
