In line with previous reports and speculations, Apple may launch the much hyped iPhone 6 in mid-September. According to sources close to 9to5Mac, the Cupertino-based gaint is gearing up for its major hardware and software launches of 2014.
The major event will mark the debut of the new iPhone 6 with a 4.7-inch display, but the final decision on a large screen iPhone is still debatable, the news site claims. Apple is ‘tentatively' planning to hold an event in mid-September to announce the iPhone 6 and provide more details on iOS 8.
"These people say that the second and third weeks of September are the mostly likely weeks for the event to be held, but they add that manufacturing uncertainties could alter the event's timeframe. A decision has not been finalized, and sources made it clear that the plans are in flux," the site says.
Looks like Apple iPhone 6 could be a huge hit, as the makers behind the iPod have ordered a whooping 80 million units by the end of the year. If true, Apple is expected to sell a record number of iPhones during fall 2014.
Reportedly, the 4.7-inch iPhone will go into production with the larger 5.5-inch handset set to start three weeks later; though there is no confirmation whether the 5.5-inch handset will make its debut this year.
Moreover, following the September event, Apple might announce its much delayed fitness and health oriented iWatch. Apparently, the firm is planning to hold an event sometime in October that will indeed showcase the iWatch. Furthermore, the very same event could be used to reveal next-gen iPads.
