Fans of the Apple iPhone will be pleased to hear that the release of the iPhone 6 is starting to shape-up. A new report dated June 25 appeared on tech blog GforGames, and it suggests that inside sources have released release date and pricing information out into the wild for the new model of the ever popular iPhone.
The iPhone 6 is one of the most anticipated devices of 2014, and Apple are hoping that this release will fire the iPhone back to the top of the smartphone chain. The iPhone 6 will reportedly hit the market on Friday, September 19. The new leak suggests that rather surprisingly, there will be no 16GB variant of the device.
The new iPhone 6 will be launched with two different screen sizes, which will no doubt please the masses that have been calling for a larger screened device. Both a 4.7-inch and a 5.5-inch version will launch with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The potential break-away from offering a 16GB model could be a huge surprise seeing as the Apple has always offered the iPhone with 16GB of storage at launch.
The report states that the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 with 32GB of storage will sell for $846 (off contract) while the 64GB version of the smartphone will sell for a whopping $1008. The large price tag will buy you a powerful phone that is rumored to feature a sapphire glass screen, a new 64-bit A8 processor, and a new iSight camera. While the 5.5-inch iPhone Phablet does not have a price mentioned, the report does go on to say that the larger iPhone's camera will feature optical image stabilization (OIS).
The iPhone 6 release will also see the public release of iOS 8, and potentially the new iWatch. The update to Apple's mobile operating software will pack a ton of new features including the Health Kit package, and the home automation package known as Home Kit. The iWatch is rumored to feature a OLED display and up to 10 health sensors including heart rate sensors, and blood glucose sensors, and could possibly receive certification from the FDA so that it can be used as a official medical device.
Apple is hoping that the launch of the new iPhone 6, and the iWatch will revolutionize the world of mobile technology once again, just as the original release of the iPhone did back in 2007. After a few years of lackluster releases, the technology world at large is hoping that this years release will spark life back into the platform.
