Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is sick and tired of the numerous leaks regarding the highly anticipated iPhone 6. Just last month, one insider spilled more than a few details surrounding the upcoming smartphone.

Apple iPhone 6 rumors

Ming Chi Kuo (analyst for KGI Securities) got his information about the iPhone 6 from anonymous sources. He reported the iPhone 6 will feature a 4.7 inch Retina display with a resolution of 1,334 x 750 pixels, an A8 processor, 1GB of RAM and a design overhaul. He expected the phone to appear thinner and feature a smaller bezel on both sides of the display. Kuo also believes the phone will feature NFC and sapphire crystal covered displays, the latter of which will likely be featured in the higher-end 64-gb models.

Sonny Dickson also had his fair share of leaks and images of products last year. He has, however, reduced the number of leaks featured on his website this year, and his telling tweet may offer some insight. He explained, “Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) had asked Chinese authorities to catch those who are trying to leak i6. There are about 200 security officers trying to catch those who dare to sell i6 accessories.”

Apple tries hard to guard their products before arrival

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) takes protecting and guarding their unreleased gadgets very seriously. The company makes a major effort to keep their products safe from prying eyes and competitors. The tech giant’s biggest concerns are obviously Android and Samsung. The two tech giants currently dominate the smartphone market and competition is fierce. There is a lot of anticipation about the upcoming iPhone 6 and people will stop at nothing to get the scoop. That’s why it’s not too surprising the Cupertino-based tech giant is taking extra precautions.

According to the latest rumors, iOS 8 is expected to debut next week and the iPhone will likely follow some months later. There is a good chance the company will also unveil the iWatch this summer, which will probably be compatible with the next iPhone. It looks like 2014 is shaping up to be quite a year for Apple.
