Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) hasn’t officially announced the release date (or anything for that matter) of the iPhone 6. Rumors and media reports suggest that an iPhone 6 with a larger screen could hit the market by the end of 2014. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s next smartphone is expected to be the best smartphone ever made, nothing less. Some analysts believe that the Cupertino-based tech giant could bring the iPhone 6 sooner. They expect the company to shorten its upgrade cycle.

Citi’s view on iPhone 6 release date

But Citi Research recently said in a note to investors that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is likely to launch a high resolution 12.9-inch tablet in June 2014 at Worldwide Developers Conference. There is a growing consensus among the component suppliers in Asia that the larger iPad would go on sale in summer next year. Citi believes that the iPhone maker has set a clear boundary between its professionally-oriented and consumer-oriented products. That sets the iPhone 6 launch date to late September. At its last WWDC event, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveiled iTunes Radio, a revamped iOS 7, OS X Mavericks and a new line of MacBook Air. At WWDC 2014, Citi expects the company to launch the large size iPad.

iPhone 6 at WWDC 2014?

On the other hand, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, a well-known “Apple expert”, says that the iPhone 6 is likely to be launched in June 2014. Munster says Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s stock has been lagging for a long time now. And the company needs a blockbuster product to please shareholders and fans. The iPhone 6 could be that blockbuster, says Munster (media reports also suggest the same). He says Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) could also launch iTV and iWatch in June.

The iPhone 6 is speculated to feature a scratch-proof screen, 3D gesture control, a 64-bit A8 processor, improved Siri, enhanced sensors on display, a large and curved display, and facial recognition technology.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares rose 0.44% to $568.05 in pre-market trading Wednesday.
