We don’t have too long to wait until the next iPhone release as the launch is set for 9th September. The rumour mill has been abuzz with what to expect from Apple on their next flagship device, including the possibility of two devices. It is expected that we could see a 4.7-inch iPhone as well as 5.5-inch one which would put in among the existing phablet market.


The iPhone 6 will have the latest iOS 8, as seen at WWDC 2014, so we can expect a whole host of new features including more functions for Siri and enhanced notifications.


As with any Apple release there has been a few leaked images but not much in the way of really letting us know what we will get so we shall have to wait for the event this month to get all the juicy details.
