iPhone 6 Release Date, Features And Rumors

iPhone 6 Release Date?

The exact date Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release iPhone 6 is still unknown, given the fact that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) likes to launch their most favored product in autumn, it’s expected to be sometime in the fall. However, one analyst thinks it might debut even earlier. Peter Misek from Jeffries sent a note to investors explaining, “the supply chain is primed for an iPhone 5S and pivoting to the iPhone 6 will take at least two or three quarters.”

iOS 7 Debuts

iOS 7 was debuted earlier this summer and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) already released two beta tests for it. Although it’s exciting and a little bit innovative, it’s also a bit dated. ExpertReviews.co.uk reports, “Well, we now know exactly what we’re getting with iOS 7, which was unveiled at the Apple World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June). Designed by Jony Ive, the system is a big departure from the current version. For starters, the interface and icons have all been completely redesigned with a ‘flatter’ appearance. It’s certainly more modern looking.”

The iOS 7 will be released this fall, but the iPhone 6 is likely to get a more revamped version of the iOS. ExpertReviews.co.uk elaborated further, relaying that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has said that iOS 7 will be released in autumn, which should nicely coincide with the launch of the iPhone 5S. With the iPhone 6, though, we’re likely to get a tweaked version of the OS that introduces some new features. For example, if the rumoured NFC chip makes it to the iPhone 6, we may see a new Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) payments app.

iPhone 6 Possible Features

As for the features and specs, the iPhone 6 may have a larger screen, and gaze detection feature that will pause the video or turn the screen off if the detector senses you’re not looking at the screen. This will save a lot of battery power. Other possible features include better camera, more storage capacity, and NFC. The iPhone 6 will also most likely be priced the same.
