US-based tech giant Apple is confirmed to release its two versions of flagship smartphone iPhone 6 in September, according to a new report. This came after the production of accessories that will be used in the two devices has ramped up.
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White has recently been a part of the Computex tech trade show in Taiwan and he gathered some interesting fresh details about the next generation smartphone, according to MacRumors.
White has been quoted saying that “we believe the timing of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 launch appears to be in sync with our expectation around the (September) unveiling of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6. At Computex, we noticed that a few vendors had already started work on accessories for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and the pieces were available at the show … we view this as a positive development.”
White had earlier correctly predicted that the iPad Mini will be launched in 2012, and again he rightly claimed that Apple will release its iPhone in multiple colours in 2013, which happened with the iPhone 5C.
White’s prediction has been supported by a new development that the company is reportedly source nearly 20 million battery packs from a new supplier.
This signifies that the iPhone 6 is likely to be released on September 19, as earlier reported, and buyers will be able to get hold of both the 4.7-inch model and the super-sized 5.5-inch phablet edition at the same time.
Apple iPhone 6 is likely to be equipped with Apple’s next OS version, iOS 8, and it would be more scratch resistant as compared to the screens of the current iPhones.
Analysts reported in May 2014 that the iPhone 6 will possibly be equipped with NFC-powered mobile payment service. According to 9to5Mac, this news gained further momentum as the company is currently in talks with partners. This feature, if finalized, will enable iPhone users to buy upscale goods with the device acting as their iWallet.
Additionally, the iPhone 6 is sure to be loaded with the best of design and functions. To keep neck-to-neck competition with Android devices, Apple is likely to reasonably price its smartphone in order to convert millions more of Android users
