There is no doubt that the iPhone 6 is going to be critical to the future of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). The iPhone remains the flagship product of the consumer electronics manufacturer, and after encouraging sales figures released during its last financial report, Apple will be looking for the iPhone 6 to shift a significantly higher number of units than previous models. This desire may have been particularly intensified by the fact that Samsung has claimed within the last forty-eight hours to have sold more of the Galaxy S5 smartphone than previous models.

iPhone 6: Appearance

We don’t know what the iPhone 6 will look like yet, at least not officially. But all the available evidence points to a much thinner iPhone design than previous iterations of the handset. It seems certain that there will be an iPhone with a 4.7-inch display, as reports to this effect have appeared on a consistent basis over the last couple of months. A phablet-sized iPhone 6 is also a possibility, but rumors of this have died down slightly in the last few weeks, despite indications in documentation involved in the Apple v. Samsung court case that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) was working on a phablet.

Resolution

9to5Mac has suggested that the iPhone 6 will feature an increased screen resolution, which could be around 1704 x 960 pixels. This would result in an improved resolution density of between 356-416 pixels per inch.

Sapphire screen

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) seems to be seeking to improve the durability of the iPhone 6 by constructing it from scratch-proof Sapphire Glass. This would mean a departure from the Gorilla Glass which has been used for previous iPhone iterations. Supply line reports have indicated that Apple has already purchased a vast amount of this material, and that the process of manufacturing sapphire crystal in its supply chain is already underway.

Faster networking

Numerous analysts have asserted that the iPhone 6 will support the latest 802.11ac wireless networking standard. This would mean that the iPhone 6 would be compatible with speeds of up to 1 Gigabit per second. Apple has already instigated a general push to include to next-generation networking technology within its other devices.

Camera

Reports have indicated that Sony are in talks with Apple to assist with the development of camera technology for the iPhone 6. This could result in the next Apple smartphone being fitted with a more powerful snapper than the iPhone 5S, possibly around the 13-megapixel mark.

Processor

The iPhone 6 may embrace the A8 chip, which will offer more sophisticated 64-bit technology than previous iPhone models. There has also been speculation that the M7 coprocessor will be spruced up, which will possibly enable the iPhone 6 to include environmental sensors, in order for it to be viewed as a companion device for Apple’s ‘Healthbook’ application.

Other features

As mentioned previously, the fabled ‘Healthbook’ app is rumored to be in development for the iPhone 6. This will reportedly include bloodwork, heartrate monitoring and blood pressure measurement.

There could also be improved networking with the iPad and possible link-up capability with a hypothetical iWatch, although an Apple smartwatch may not have hit the market by the time that the iPhone 6 is released.

Finally, improvements in the Siri song recognition software, touch ID development, and a brand new iOS 8 operating system offering new functionality, are all likely.

Release date

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) remains very tight lipped on even the existence of the iPhone 6, let alone when we can expect to see it hit the High Street. With iPhone 5S adverts still running regularly on television, it is quite clear that Apple is intending to flog a fair few more units of their existing smartphones before announcing the iPhone 6. But a possible release date of September, 2014 has been set in stone by the Apple-following community for some time now, and it would be a big surprise if something so ubiquitously reported turned out to be completely incorrect.

Price

Traditionally, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has not lowered the price of any of its smartphone releases. Some reports have speculated that the iPhone 6 may cost as much as $100 more than the iPhone 5S on release, but it is more likely that it will retail at around the same price point.

  1. Really.. Rambling Rant? I think I would know what I’m saying since I was very close with Apple.. Under Steve everything was tight lipped. Oh That’s Steve Jobs YOU IDIOT, MORON… But things have changed and things have been lightly leaked for reasons… I don’t need to defend myself.. You will never change and understand what people say once you are always right…
    You love to put others down after reading the history of your comments Mr. Righteous Almighty know it all..Your educated and relevant comments not just to me but to others includes such profound words as lTool/Moron Fool,Troll,Dolt,Clueless Wonder, 2nd Grade Science,Monkey,Ignorant etc.,..Get a Life instead of bashing others.. Oh.. Ask yourself what did I do to help someone today? Then ask yourself what did I do/say to bash someone..
    Grow up KID…I would bet I’m older by age and maturity.. I will still pray for lost/slime ball individuals like you… You really should cease to exist but that’s not in me to wish that…
    Enjoy ignorant fellow..

  2. Nice rambling nonsensical rant. Everyday there’s some fool tool like you screaming about “bias” and how they’re being paid by Apple. Every day and on every site. Guess what moron, this article has nothing to do with “Apple marketing” and everything to do with supply chain leaks, etc. In case it hasn’t dawned on you, Einstein, Apple DOESN’T want any info leaked. You’re a fool kid that doesn’t know his arse from his elbow. It’s funny that you think you’re “educated”. Now save yourself further embarrassment kid and get lost!

    P.S. Your magical sky daddy isn’t real so you can skip the ” praying for me” part.

  3. Oh finally I heard from the All mighty righteous Ulama(Uluma), Allah..You seem to know everything in the world and love to criticize others and everyone else knows nothing…(All based on your prior posts).. Sadly you are not an educated person(unlike Uluma) and are the reason why the internet breeds hidden insecure rejects/terrorist/bigots.. For this is a beautiful world and maybe you will see the light.. You love to say 2nd grade science ejumacation,(or education) Dolts, clueless wonder, ignorant troll, morons sister, 12 yr old, Do you want a banana ..Monkey? Moron, Oh I’m sorry I care about monkey’s and I don’t want to lower them to your level…Wow what holier than now attitude you have towards the world…You are in need of help as you are an Uneducated wanna be intellect that creates anger and hates people.. There is no need to respond to this but just know I will truly pray for you and that you need to find a place in your heart to help and give to others instead of cutting/wreaking them….

  4. Everyday there is some new article touting how great the iphone6 will be or how much better it is than the Samsung Galaxy S5.. A brainwashing joke… Just leaked info, inside specs on new iPhone 6 etc…. It’s all marketing hype by Apple.. Notice how nothing not related to Apple Apple is not highlighted in any articles? Only Apple or Apple related vendors are highlighted… Yahoo,others and writers must be getting paid by Apple with their new way of advertising rather than Yahoo etc having to pay writers for their stories..
    ALL Hype no substance as these story’s leak like a sieve..

  5. No one but Apple knows the release date and features of the next iPhone, which may or may not be called the iPhone 6. It’s always been that way with Apple, and it always will be.

  6. Yes, this is not the first time someone had written an article on junk we don’t already know there are no confirmed facts yet because it has not been announced yet people keep churning out these articles based on rumours prefacing it with things like “price: well we don’t actually know yet but going by past releases” or “screen: we don’t actually know yet but going by rumours” and “release date: we don’t actually know yet but past releases…”
    It’s ridiculous. Everything in these articles can be assumed going by past releases and rumours but since apple has not announced it yet, the title is very misleading.

  7. hmmm so we still don’t know anything because this whole article is based on speculation? do you guys get paid by the word or the story?

  8. So basically this headline advertises that these points are FACTS, but really they have no idea and speculate what the features will be just like everyone else. The point of journalism is to publish fresh facts…thanks for wasting my time. I could have been picking my butt.

  9. Was going to get the 5s, but the son said- WAIT!!!!!, for the i6. looks like he was right, hope they get them out in august as they said they were ahead on the release time….. good for my stock too!
