iPhone 6 Rumours

 

The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c have been out for a while now and as usual the technology industry is abuzz with what might follow next. So we take a look at all the iPhone 6 rumours to see what might be featured on the very latest iPhone and when we should expect it.

 

iPhone 6 Specifications

 

One of the points of much speculation has been the screen size on the iPhone 6, with Apple not following the crowd by delivering huge screens and focusing on high quality displays rather than large phablet ones. So will they stick with this formula on the iPhone 6? A recent image leak which has supposedly come from an Asian manufacturer shows two possible iPhone cases next to each other prompting the rumour that iPhone will release a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6+.

Retina+ technology is expected on both handsets and the chassis bezel is expected to be much smaller to accommodate the larger screen sizes.

 

A new iOS is also expected to come along side the new iPhone 6 as the release of their latest handset usually coincides with a new OS launch so we should expect to see iOS 8 making its debut on this smartphone.

 

NFC is rumoured to finally be making its way onto the iPhone as Apple has ignored this technology in the past it would be good to finally see this on an iPhone.

 

Other rumoured features include eye tracking technology for the screen and wireless charging that will charge your iPhone and iPad at the same time.

 

iPhone 6 camera

 

The iPhone 6 camera is expected to get a bit of an overhaul with added features like re-focusable lightfield technology, simply meaning you can adjust the areas of focus on an image once you have taken it (similar to uFocus on the HTC One M8).

The many speculations about the camera also hint at a higher resolution lens which will be welcomed by iPhone fans. So far it looks like Apple could be working on a 13-megapixel snapper for the iPhone 6 so we can expect decent image results from this smartphone.

 

iPhone 6 Release Date

 

The release date of the iPhone 6 is expected to follow the trend of an annual iPhone release, if this is the case we should see a launch event in September this year. It is expected that the iPad Pro and iWatch will launch at the same time and will be designed to integrate with each other so we should see all devices launched at the same time.

 

Now Apple does like to keep us guessing so perhaps they will surprise us with an earlier launch or even split the launch of the expected two phones across two events – either way we will have to wait and see.

 

What do you think Apple need to add to the iPhone 6? Will you wait for the launch of the iPhone 6 before you buy your next smartphone? Tell us your thoughts by joining the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ or comment below.
