iPhone 6 Release Date: Sooner Than Expected?

Deep Discounts And The iPhone 6

The most recent rumors came from one analyst who has made correct predictions about Apple before. They said that the iPhone 6 would be out early next year, but massive markdowns on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S are triggering rumors that we might not have to wait that long to see the device.

If you remember, analysts had said previously that we would see the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 5S in July, but they changed their expectations for the next version of the device, pushing it back further and further. Now AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE:WMT) are both offering the iPhone 5 and 4S for 50 percent or even more off, which is very rare in Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) history.

Stabley Times’ Phil Moore believes this means that the iPhone 6 will be out in July because when Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has made such deep discounts on its products in the past, it meant that a major upgrade was about to be happen.

A July Release Date For The iPhone 6?

So why July? Moore says it might have something to do with iOS 7. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) can’t really announce the launch of the iPhone 6 until iOS 7 is launched. The initial iOS 7 beta came out this month, but it was only the iPhone version. In the past, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) typically put out the iPhone and iPad versions out at the same time. He speculates that this means the company is putting all of its attention on the iPhone version and plans to release iOS 7 for the iPad later.

So just how quickly does Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) want to get the iPhone 6? And what’s a realistic release date? Only Apple workers know, and they aren’t telling.
