Apple iPhone 6 Release Date Nears As Apple iPhone 5C Price Decreases

Apple iPhone 6 Release Date Nears As Apple iPhone 5C Price Decreases

The release date of Apple’s next flagship smartphone, iPhone 6, is believed to be around the corner as the company is rumored to be decreasing the price of its iPhone 5C. It is being rumored that the company is due to release the 8 GB iPhone 5C version soon that will be available at a price of nearly USD85.

This can be supported from a fact that Engadget managed to get a photo of the alleged 8 GB 5C’s packaging, and German carrier O2 leaked a document of a memo forwarded to its employees informing about the launch of an iPhone.

This comes as the company’s iPhone 5C was a flop show when it was released at end-2013. It is perceived as a cheaper model of iPhone but still expensive than the other smartphones available in the market.

Digitimes has claimed that more than 3 million iPhone 5C units are still lying unsold, out of which 2 million are kept in Pegatron’s warehouses, while another 1 million units are lying in carriers’ and retailers’ shelves.

The new iPhone 6 is expected to be launched around September or October 2014, according to iDigitalTimes. However, it was earlier believed that the smartphone will be launched in June at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers’ Conference alongside the upcoming iOS 8.

The upcoming smartphone is likely to have a bigger screen size along with a faster and better A8 processor, fingerprint sensor as well as other new and exciting features and improvements.

Apple iPhone 6 Price Could Be A Bank Breaker: Will The Price Tag Be Worth It?

apple iphone 6 price featuresWith rumors rife that Apple iPhone 6 could be a wonder baby from the Cupertino stable, it is time we focus our attention to what it means on the price front. The iPhone 6 will not be anywhere close to inexpensive as the makers are eyeing the premium-buying segment.

In fact, with the erstwhile Apple iPhone 5C and 5S having rung in chances that Apple was looking to lower its ware pricing, we will be in for disappointment. Tim Cook, CEO at Apple, went to the extent of highlighting that Apple was not into the mass scale business, without as much as raising his eyebrow. With the giants having shooed off the strategy to capture the market by lowering their weight, we now need to think what Apple could offer to gain the major market share. With Samsung and LG offering high-end phones at prices that need no bank-breaking, Apple sure needs to re-think its stand.… Read the rest

 Apple always manages to stay in the limelight with its new products and devices. Following the launch of its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, the latest buzz in the rumor mill goes around its forthcoming iPhone 6, which the firm plans to unveil in 2014.

If speculations are to be believed, the Cupertino Calif.-based firm might roll out the iPhone 6 with its patented solar technology, which the firm acquired in February 2013. An integrated touch sensor with solar panel, this technology lets Apple pile touch sensors above the solar cell layers. The electrodes in this built-in panel can be used to gather solar energy and for sensing on a touch sensor display. In case the buzz turns out to be true, this integration to the patent will set aside surface area on the iPhone 6.

However, Apple has time to check the viability of this technology on the device since it has lined the iPhone 6 for a 2014 release.

The iPhone 6 is also expected to feature Touch ID joined with NFC for secure payments. Along with the A7 chip, the device might boast 2GB of RAM with iOS7 for fast and improved performance. It is speculated that along with solar technology, Apple might sport a bigger screen on the device.
