The iPhone 6 is one of the most highly anticipated gadgets, perhaps even more so than the iPhone 5S. Although there has been minor speculation that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release it this year, it’s more likely to debut in 2014.
Apple to unveil iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in September
Right now, we’re expecting Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to unveil the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C (the budget phone) on September 10th. The former isn’t expected to really be all that much different than the iPhone 5 and that’s the problem. Gene Munster from Piper Jaffray explained, “The new 5S, as analysts expect the new phone to be called, will follow the usual drill — faster processor, improved camera and more storage. This is an incremental update.”

Purported videos of the iPhone 6
It’s still too early for purported images or videos of the iPhone 6 to surface yet but that doesn’t stop fans from drawing up concept designs. Clare Hopping for Know Your Mobile explained, “The latest iPhone 6 concept to break cover on the internet shows a fully wrap-around screen. Not only does the display wrap around the sides of the device, but also round to the back, allowing you to view more than ever. Obviously, this concept is a little ridiculous, because you obviosuly won’t be able to put a cover/case on the phone, or hold the smartphone in your hand without tapping a link, app or anything else for that matter.”
iPhone 6 could be made of plastic
There’s also been speculation that the iPhone 6 could be made from plastic. Recent images surfaced of a plastic Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) smartphone in an array of fun colors. There is still no word on whether these phones are iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, or iPhone Light. The image, which surfaced on Techdy could also be just an iPhone inside a colorful case. The image shows a camera with flash, an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) logo above, and iPhone branding on the bottom.
There is a lot to look forward to.
