The Apple iPhone 6 release date 2014 may be here sooner than first thought and the news has sent iPhone admirers into a frenzy. Just yesterday it seemed almost confirmed that the iPhone 6 would be released in September, according to various reports. But today it was reported by The Huffington Post that Apple Inc will unveil the next incarnation of its popular iPhone series in August, one month earlier than industry watchers were generally expecting.
The latest rumors suggest that the 4.7-inch iPhone could go ahead and see the light in August and the 5.5 inch release comes right after in September. The information comes from the Taiwan's Economic Daily News and contradicts all the speculations made so far regarding the release date of the new Apple iPhone. The strongest rumors speak of September as the release date of the 4.7 inch iPhone 6, and early 2015 for the phablet version. These changes could be a strategy by the Cupertino company or simply false rumors.
Another rumor traversing the network lately has to do with the price of the iPhone. In June, there was speculation that the new iPhone would be $100 more expensive than its predecessor. There is talk that the price of the phablet version could exceed $1000, and one of the main reasons is that, by having the biggest screen and the use of sapphire for manufacturing, the production cost would be higher and therefore the final price for the consumer would increase as well.
As CNET explains, the Apple iPhone 6 release date 2014 is not confirmed as of yet and Apple hasn't even announced that it's even working on a new iPhone, let alone what it will be called. The next iPhone is still expected to feature a fast A8 processor along with a sapphire crystal display, and may launch in tandem with Apple's iOS 8 operating system.
