Apple is gearing up to launch the iPhone 6 and the rumors are flying like snow flakes in a snow globe. One new report claims that Apple will launch the iPhone 6 as early as September and iFanatics are going nuts.
iDevice launch events are among the most highly-anticipated and exciting launches for tech fanatics. It seems that as soon as Apple has released a new device, rumors start cropping up about its successor. Indeed, the iPhone 6 rumor mill got started just hours after the launch of the iPhone5s. The closer we get to prime time, the faster and more accurate the rumors grow.
The latest reports hint that Apple will launch the iPhone 6 in September and that the company intends to sell 600 million in a very short amount of time. The new report states that both the 4.7 and 5.5-inch versions of the iPhone 6 are expected to debut in September at a huge launch event in California. The September launch date estimate is based upon reports from manufacturers that Touch ID sensors, Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) and other key components are already in production.
It is entirely possible that Apple will introduce the iPhone 6 in September, as it habitually holds launch events in September. Back in September 2012, Apple released the iPhone 5, its first-ever 4-inch iPhone. It would make perfect sense for Apple to launch the even bigger iPhone 6 around the same time two years later. The recent increase in leaked photos and supposed specifications of the hottest iDevice yet also suggests that a launch date is imminent.
Although it seems clear that Apple will most likely release a 4.7 and 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6, there is some controversy as to whether the two devices will arrive at the same event. Recent reports state that the 5.5-inch phablet-version of the iPhone 6 could arrive at a later date, riding on the coat tails of the smaller, 4.7-inch version.
However, knowing Apple’s fondness for simplicity, it seems more likely that the company will release both iPhones at the same time just like it did with the iPhone 5S and 5C as well as the iPad Air and iPad Mini with retina display. Apple doesn’t like messy follow ups. Apple likes to make big splashes and inspire its audiences.
Overall, recent rumors point to a pretty incredible device. Both versions of the iPhone 6 are widely expected to have displays made of sapphire glass without bezels, Touch ID, the 64-bit 20-nm A8 processor, 10-megapixel camera and iOS 8.
