Apple is set to ring in double cheer for fans this 2014. While we had been feasting in rumors of the Apple iPhone 6 making way this season, we now hear that the release has been postponed until September. However, in a bid to not risk losing fan fare, Apple has planned on releasing a fabulous phablet in May. We got this piece of news from Yahoo Japan.
As for the major specs of this rumored phablet, here is a quick look:
64-bit A7 processor
5.7 incher screen (or bigger)
Shifting focus to the much-awaited iPhone 6, we already know that the handset might come in two distinct sizes. The rumors of bendable screen has already been over-reported!
The more salivating specs that the Apple iPhone 6 could come loaded with are:
With such massively seductive features, Apple is sure to divert our attentions away from the Korean Samsung and the giant called LG! Perhaps Apple has been too swamped with the success of the tow and has finally pulled its socks up for good.
iPhone 6 may come with a flexible wraparound display. To get an edge above LG and Samsung phones according to statement released by techradar.com, the Cupertino based company has just been awarded, “A patent for a flexible wraparound display, made using a powder liquidmetal process.”
It is being speculated that Apple will be using the wraparound display in its all upcoming iPhones including the about to be release iPhone 6. With the wraparound display the users will be able to view content on the back, front and sides of the phone.
According to the website the patent has also suggested that, “ The phone will still have non touch surfaces on top and bottom of the phone. Also references have been made that device of different shapes, including a hollow cylinder, a hollow tube with an oval, or even a triangular or rectangular shape could be used”. Does this mean this technology could be used in iwatches also?
Moreover, Apple iPhone 6 would try to create niche in the market with innovative feature rotational motion detection. A number of sensor like gyroscope and accelerometer will be used to control the display as per the viewing angles.
Apple fans await the best features and specifications as per the rumours of iPhone 6. The phone is all set to make a release in 2014, however, out of all what comes as a big surprise for the fans is the price of the iPhone 6
As per Susquehanna Fiscal Group personnel stated that the replacement gadget of iPhone 5s will surely come in the market in 2014 with higher price marks. Apple could easily get away with $50 to $100 extra amount for its large screen size.
While the news won’t be appreciated by the millions of iPhone fans who are waiting for the phone, there are several signs that force the price hike on the iPhone 6. Below here are some indications that showcase that the 2014 debut will be pricier
Curved or Wraparound screen
One thing that differentiates the iPhone 6 from its predecessor will be the screen size. Apple is likely to jump from 4 inches of iPhone 5s to 4.8inches to 6 inches and to offer flexible display which will give the iPhone 6 a flashing display for premium durability. These updates lead to higher production expenses for the company and eventually lead to price bump
Enhanced Retina and Screen Sensors
Other than tough iPhone screen design, Apple spices up the phone new attributes. It seeks to offer crisper and sharper resolution from the previous version. Bloomberg reported that it will feature new sensors that can different between light and heavy touches on the display
Liquidmetal and sapphire
Apple wants to toughen the solidity of the phone and hence it is including sapphire and liquid metal in its casing. This will protect the phone from scratch and depreciation.
Low carrier subsidies
Every iPhone model starts with normal $199 pricing for the base model. For the new iOS, either the price will be lesser or completely off from the network carrier’s menu.
Thus, as expected it could be priced $100 higher in comparison to the previous releases
The iPhone 6 rumours continue to be around setting the release of the device in October 2014. Apple will also launch its iWatch and Smartwatch along with it. while Samsung released Samsung Galaxy Gear, its smartwatch in 2012, Apple is working hard on it and ready to release it in 2014.
Apple wishes to enhance the iWatch battery life to 5 days making it three day longer than the Galaxy Gear battery life. The iPhone 6 rumours comprise of inclusion of facial recognition technique and curved screen, with few analyst stating June 2014 as its release date. Th other speculations state it will be like a phablet. MacRumours state it will boast of 4.8unch Retina +IGZO display
The recent patents of Apple stated that the new iPhone will have the AMOLE screen just like the iPod Nano, 4th generation. The patents are still unfolded and come with gesture control, facial recognition, and 3D display. The wraparound comes with touch screen and makes it impossible for people to hold the gadget without pressing side buttons.
Another patent release of iPhone 6 could bring fingerprint sensor with MFC technique which will help in data transmission, wireless payment, media transfer and playback etc. Apple can also use sonar to change the infrared sensors. It will help the phone to detect and alert you about an incoming object is in the way. the innovative smart bezel may be included in the device to incorporate on- screen activities.
As per the patent, this include that the phone will support primary screen to display visual content and secondary screen that functions as a guide to give inputs for the users. Wireless technology, enhanced Bluetooth sapphire crystal are also expected in the yet to be released iPhone 6
AAPL is all set to release the iPhone 6 in 2014. Reports suggest that the next generation release of iPhone, Apple iPhone 6 will come with a bigger display an curved an flexible screen, while others say it will be a full HD screen.

No Full HD
Reports agree that iPhone 6 will sports a big screen and better resolution. The sources suggest that it will feature 4.8 inch Full HD screen with resolution of 1920 x 1080. It may be true as Samsung did the same with its GS4. Apple seems to be fine if their gadget doesn’t hold the highest resolution. The company focuses on newer specs now.
Apple is focussing on offering good user experience to people. Expert Reviews suggest that if Apple brings changes to its size then it needs to enhance the resolution too. If Apple doesn’t do the same, the texts and images will get soft and hinder the Retina effect
With a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixel, Apple will have to increase the pixel density. As the resolution is 1.69 times vertically and 1.69 times horizontally, it will increase the aggregate resolution by 3.38 times causing bad scaling. Apple should come with 2272 x 1280 resolution.
iPhone 6 release date doesn’t look very far as more amazing offers for the iPhone 5s have been caught online. Retail stores and network carriers have brought the price of Apple devices down.
T-Mobile offered a remarkable deal on the iPhone 5s, which proposed that the consumers can take the smartphone for free.

The buzz around the arrival of the Apple iPhone 6 is getting stronger by the day. While we have been hearing rumors galore about the iPhone 6 specs and its release, here is some news that could surprise you. We expect the 6th Apple kid to arrive coming June next year.
The Cupertino giant has made it a trend to release an iPhone each year and boost the newbie model with new specs in the year following release. Going by this, the iPhone 6 is an all-new package– not just meatier but also sexier!
However, Apple insiders reveal that the makers are trying to figure out the best way between consumer oriented and professionally allied solutions with the iPhone 6. This could push the iPhone 6 release to as late as September 2014.
With the WWDC coming up in the summer of 2014, we even here that, the release date could be punched in with this event. With the drool-worthy features and never before seen specs that the Apple iPhone might have, we are ready to wait even as long as September 2014.
Apple has expended over half a billion in the development of sapphire crystal display for its new release, the iPhone6 that won’t bear a scratch even when brushed against concrete surface. Sapphire glass is 2.5 times harder than Corning Gorilla Glass. The sapphire glass can break concrete without leaving any scratch on it. The Sapphire crystal has been used in iPhone 5s but just on the lens of the rear camera and Touch ID button
Apple has paid GT Advanced Technologies $578 to enhance the production of its next gen iPhone series. A scratch resistance display would give the iPhone 6 a competitive advantage over its contemporaries. But this could set the price of iPhone 6 very high.
With the launch of iPhone 5, the profit margin declined as the new specs of the phone added to the expense, yet the price of the iPhone 5 remained unchanged. But with iPhone 6 analyst are expecting host of new features which will increase the bills of material cost too.
The phone is all set to release in the mid of the 2014.The fans of iPhone weren’t happy to see the changes in the iPhone 5c and 5s as they expect a better hardware upgrade. The expected iPhone 6 will come in the middle of 2014 and will come with larger screen and slick wraparound screen.
Forbes updated that iPhone 6 may sport a manmade sapphire crystal display which will make the display scratch resistant, but will eventually increase the expense. Bloomberg stated that the device will feature a curved screen which will enhance the surface area of the phone without adding much the overall breadth of the gadget.
While Apple is resistant to join the phablet segment like its rival, the company has released the gigantic untapped potential in the next gen iPhone
Apple iPhone 6 release is just round the corner. Industry experts believes that with the dismissal of Apple iPhone 5S/ 5C, the tech giant will bring some revolutionary features in Apple iPhone 6.
According to highly placed sources at Apple, “iPhone 6 will come with longer battery life, improved camera, wraparound display and sapphire screen.”
It has also been rumored that iPhone 6 will have a 3D sensor technology which will make user interaction a breeze. Apple has recently obtained Prime Sense technology from an Israeli company. The company is the expert in designing sensors that help in user interaction.
Another noteworthy acquisition, which Apple has done, is of company responsible for Xbox Kinect sensor. The acquisition deal cost apple $350 million. It is predicted that since now Apple has hold over such technology, the 3D sensor will be included in the 6th generation iPhone.
According to Susquehanna analyst, Chris Caso, “We think Apple could get away with a $50 to $100 premium for a larger screen size iPhone 6. We think such a move could avoid the margin erosion that occurred when the iPhone 5 was launched.”
Apple iPhone 6 needs to up its ante if it is willing to beat competition by HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Both the phones have a bigger screen size and are endowed with brilliant features. Indeed, Apple phones are packed with some extraordinary features but a big screen won’t hurt either.
