iPhone 6 Rumors – What We Know So Far

Get all the latest iPhone 6 rumors in one place

    View All  

Physical size is one thing, but Apple is frequently criticized for its Retina display resolution, which now seems low-rent compared to the competition. According to iPhone 6 rumors like this one posted to YouTube, the resolution may be tripled this time around.

Dimensions and shape are also frequent subjects of speculation. Aloysius Low writes in this post on iPhone 6 rumors for CNET that the new Apple smartphone will feature a flat display, with rounded edges. Other iPhone 6 rumors sites have the device getting even thinner than the iPhone 5s, despite the bigger display.

Finally, there’s a good chance that at least one version of the iPhone 6 will be protected by sapphire glass, the super-strong alternative to Corning (GLW) Gorilla Glass.

iPhone 6 Rumors: Release Date

The million dollar question is: “When can I actually buy Apple’s new phablet smartphone?”

There was significant uncertainty even a few months ago, based on speculation like this iPhone 6 rumors video that suggested production delays in the larger model might push release dates for at least one iPhone 6 version into the late fall.

However, there’s now a reasonably high degree of confidence among iPhone 6 rumors trackers that the release date will be early in September, in keeping with Apple’s iPhone release pattern.

iPhone 6 Rumors: Roundup

While we’ll have to wait until September (at least, if the iPhone 6 rumors about the release date are to be believed) to find out how much of this is real and how much is conjecture or wishful thinking, here’s a quick recap of what to expect from Apple’s latest flagship smartphone:

  • Two models, including a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch phablet
  • Higher resolution display
  • Sapphire glass
  • A8 processor
  • 10 MP camera, possibly with optical image stabilization
  • Thinner than the iPhone 5s with rounded glass edges
  • iPhone rumors say a release date of early September
  • $199 on contract for smaller version, $299 on contract for iPhone 6 phablet

Which will turn out to be true? Stay tuned for a likely September Apple event where at least some of these iPhone 6 rumors will be confirmed.

As of this writing, Robert Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
