The release of the much-anticipated version of the smartphone from Apple is finally official. Mark your calendars, the September 9 launch date has been confirmed.
Consumers always expect a lot from Apple so all eyes are definitely going to be on the iPhone 6. There’s already been leaked information about the new smartphone, so everyone’s in suspense to get all the details on the new innovations applied to the iPhone 6, which will be coming in two versions: 5.5 inches and 4.7 inches. (FYI: iPhone 4 is 3.5″ and iPhone5 is 4″)
The difference between the two versions is more than just the screen size. Rumors have been circulating that only the 5.5 inch version will come with a Sapphire screen display. Apparently, not all of the 4.7 inch versions will have a Sapphire screen as some will still be utilizing the Gorilla Glass display, similar to that of the iPhone 5s.
There are also rumors that the iWatch will be unveiled during the launch, which is very exciting news for all wearable tech fans out there.
Rumor recap: What’s new with the iPhone 6?
- Larger screen sizes
4.7″ and 5.5″
- Crack Proof Sapphire display
Extremely durable and quite indestructible, the newest iPhone now features a Sapphire display. This screen technology is said to be scratch-proof and strong enough to withstand knife stabs as shown in many demonstrations online. (If getting knifed is in your future then you have bigger problems to worry about.)
- The new iOS 8
The new operating system that comes with the iPhone 6 is rumored to have a bunch of cool features, one of which is geared towards monitoring health and environmental stats.
- Slimmer, sleeker frame
Thickness reduced due to improvements in LED backlighting.
- Improved camera features
Rumored to get a boost in more megapixels, an f2/0 aperture and a bunch of fancy new photo editing options.
- More horsepower
New A8 processor, better battery life efficiency, and even more powerful for rendering beautiful game graphics.
These are just the rumors that I think are likely to be true – there’s quite a bit more out there if you’re interested. At the end of the day, however, we’re just going to have to wait until it actually launches on September 9.
