Apple iPhone 6 Rumors: Release Date
This is the one that investors will be watching eagerly. Apple’s iPhone sales have begun to drop in the months preceding an expected fall release of a new model. This slowdown can wreak havoc on AAPL.
The Apple iPhone 6 rumors have been all over the map on this one. Some people see Apple switching back to a summer release this year to minimize the number of customers lost to the new Galaxy S5 and to minimize the volatility in iPhone sales during the waiting period. They’re looking for the iPhone 6 in June.
Others are predicting Apple will opt for a split release, unveiling a phablet-sized iPhone 6 in June and waiting until September for the smaller (but still larger than iPhone 5s) version.
The safe bet is a continuation of the fall release date Apple’s been following the past few years, but if Tim Cook is feeling shareholder pressure to shake things up and prevent APPL from taking a hit from sagging iPhone demand over the summer, then a June release is a distinct possibility.
