New details of the iPhone 6 have been revealed just recently. Does this mean that the iPhone 6 release date is nearing?
The new iPhone is speculated to be launched on September, or October at the latest.
Apple leaker Sonny Dickson spread photos of the iPhone 6 model. The new phone is rumored to come in 5.5 or 5.7 inches.
Dickson is the “go-to” guy for Apple leaks since he’s regarded as one of the most accurate in terms of predictions.
In another interview with Seeking Alpha, analyst Matt Margolis dished on the sapphire cover glass. It has been said that the new iPhone and iWatch will have the cover.
“As a result of my most recent supply chain check I believe that the Mesa sapphire operations will have ample supply to cover the iWatch, the 4.7″ iPhone and the 5.5″ iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014. Additionally, the maximum sapphire screen capacity of the Mesa facility is likely to exceed 200m annual units,” said Margolis.
The demand for the next-generation phone appears to be high. It said that the 5.5 or 5.7-inch model could cost $100 more than the other one, according to a report on Fool.com
“Our June consumer survey points to continued growth in the willingness of iPhone users to pay $100 more for a bigger screened iPhone, with now a full one-third of survey respondents willing to pay a $100 premium,” Raymond James analyst Tavis McCourt wrote in a research note.
While consider ISI analyst Brian Marshal wrote: “‘Large-screen envy’ is prevalent among the iPhone installed base and we believe a ~5″ form-factor iPhone would spark a massive upgrade cycle as well as many ‘Android switchers’ returning back to the iPhone (we refer to this as the “mother lode” of all Apple upgrade cycles),” according to MacRumors.com.
