The brand-new iPhones 6 coming this year

Is Apple engineering its latest version iPhone 6 to have a coastline body?

It had much better be, if current rumors verify real: According to a report in Taiwan's Economic Daily Information, the supposed "iPhone 6" will come out in August, a month or two earlier than a lot of Apple watchers had actually expected.

The last three iPhones-- the iPhone 5s, the iPhone 5, and the iPhone 4s-- were all launched in either September or October. Trustworthy Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has actually anticipated a September release date for the iPhone 6; news sources like Reuters and Nikkei both released reports pegging the iPhone 6 for a fall release.

If the release date report becomes a reality, Apple might be attempting to stem the stagnation in iPhone sales that takes place every summertime. Smartphone consumers have actually ended up being conditioned to Apple's yearly cycle; usually, iPhone sales crater in the summertime as everyone waits for the more recent design, a truth that Apple always points out in its quarterly results calls each summer season's end.

That behavior, in addition to stiffer competition and sped up release cycles from competitors like Samsung, may cause Apple to speed up the release of the iPhone 6 a little bit.

The Economic Daily Information also states that the display on the iPhone 6 will enhance to 4.7 inches on the diagonal, which an even bigger iPhone, with a 5.5-inch display, will follow in September.

The part about two brand-new iPhones coming this year-- one with a 4.7 inch screen, and one "phablet"-sized iPhone later on, has been formerly reported. The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 function 4.0-inch displays, while competing phones like the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 3 had larger displays that cross the 5-inch threshold. Those phones with larger screens have verified popular with shoppers, specifically in Asia. In order to compete with Samsung, Huawei, and others in the large Asian market, Apple has to bring out a bigger display for its iPhone. And, according to the majority of reports we've seen, that's specifically what's willing to take place.

The August release date rumor, on the other hand, could be baloney. Taiwan's Economic Daily News is a credible paper, though it has no history of anticipating Apple reports-- aside from a current forecast that Apple would release its supposed "iWatch" later on this year. That lack of track record makes it difficult to examine the chance of this report becoming a reality.

For now, I 'd say that September is still more likely for the iPhone 6. Up until another developed source of Apple rumors-- the Exchange Journal, Reuters, Ming-Chi Kuo, The New york city Times-- joins the Economic Daily Information in reporting that the iPhone's release date has been raised into summer season, I'll be working on the assumption that we'll be seeing the brand-new iPhone in the fall.
