With the alleged release of Apple’s iPhone 6 right around the corner, rumors about the device are starting to warm up, and on Aug. 5, well-known, and well trusted tech blog Re/Code hinted that the highly anticipated iPhone 6 will be announced by Apple on Sept. 9.
Re/Code is reporting that Apple will hold its next iPhone event on Sept. 9, and while any source or publication can easily pull a date out of a hat, Re/Code have an excellent track record when it comes to predicting the dates of the Apple iPhone, and other Apple related events.
The date of Sept. 9 is actually pretty significant because it falls just a few short days after arch-rival Samsung will reportedly announce its next flagship device, the Galaxy Note 4 at the IFA trade show in Berlin. While the two companies releasing new phones so closely together in the past has not really raised any eyebrows, this time around Apple may very well be announcing a device that is big enough to take on the Galaxy Note 4.
There have been many leaks that show the cases, and screens of the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone 6, and its bigger brother the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but not a whole lot is known about the actual specifications of the phones.
Previous leaks have shown us that Apple has been working hard on manufacturing the sapphire glass displays that will be a new feature to the iPhone 6, and while the screen is indeed impressive, there will need to be a lot more innovation from the Cupertino, California-based tech giant if it wants the next iteration of the iPhone to reclaim the smartphone crown.
Rumors have suggested that the new iPhone will be packed with an updated version of the 64-bit processor that made its debut in the iPhone 5s, and that the iSight camera will be much more powerful than previous generations, but with iOS 8 only adding a few new features to an otherwise tired operating system, one has to wonder if Apple has been able to hide away some other killer features that can really get the tech world buzzing again.
The iPhone 6 will reportedly drop the smaller 16GB variant and will allegedly only offer 32GB and 64GB versions of the device, which means that starting prices could be as high as $299 on a two year contract. The new iPhone’s are expected to be ready for sale in early October alongside the new Apple iWatch, and iOS 8.
