Preparing for the iPhone 6 launch

iPhoneCountdown

For anyone who loves the iPhone, this is one of the most exciting times of the year. As September quickly approaches, the release of the iPhone 6 is right around the corner. With anticipation building, it is important to know what is in store for the new iPhone. Although official announcements are not expected until September 9, here is everything we know about the iPhone 6 so far:

New features

As with every new iPhone that is released, the iPhone 6 is expected to have a faster processor and some upgrades to the camera. However, the biggest change expected with the iPhone 6 is screen size.

The iPhone 5S, the most recent model available, has a 4-inch screen. To improve upon this, the expectation is that two phones will be released; one with a 4.7 inch screen, and one with a 5.5 inch screen. This would be a drastic change for the iPhone, one that would likely generate a lot of interest.

In addition to a larger screen, rumors suggest that we should expect some other major new features on the iPhone 6. Among those are a new screen made from sapphire, which would essentially be scratch-proof. There is also the possibility for wireless charging capabilities and extended battery life in the iPhone 6.

Release date

Although Apple has yet to confirm an official release date for the iPhone 6, the latest reports indicate that the release will happen on September 9. It is still unclear if Apple will release two different sizes at the same time, or if the 5.5 inch phone will come at a later date.

Sales

In September 2013, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, Apple’s discount smartphone, sold a combined 9 million units. Neither of these phones offered any significant upgrades from the previous model, so expectations are that the iPhone 6 will easily surpass those first weekend sales.
