iPhone 6 Rumors: Summer Release, More Sizes, Colors & Options

The iPhone 6 rumor mill is already hard at work in 2013 with one report suggesting that Apple is already testing the iPhone 6 with iOS 7 and now, another, suggesting that Apple is gearing up for an iPhone 6 launch date some point this summer in a multitude of colors and potentially, in different sizes as well.

According to a note from Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White, Apple might be looking to launch the new iPhone 6, or as White calls it, the iPhone 5S, by the month of June. May is also mentioned as a possibility for the iPhone 6 launch date as well.

White also believes that Apple may launch the iPhone 6 with more choice for customers in terms of colors and screen size, much like it has with the iPod touch and its tablet, the iPad. The iPod touch comes in a variety of colors while the iPad now sports two different screen sizes in the 9.7-inch iPad fourth-generation and the 7.9-inch iPad mini.

The iPhone 6 may come in more colors than just black and white.

With the iPhone 6, Apple could potentially introduce five new colors for the iPhone 6 including blue, pink, yellow, white and silver and black and slate. Previous iPhone models have only come in either black or white.

Right now, customers have a choice due to the fact that the iPhone 5 sports a 4-inch display and the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS all have 3.5-inch displays. With the iPhone 6, Apple may be looking to offer multiple screen sizes right off the bat. It’s unclear just how large or how small those screen sizes might be though.

It could be that Apple boosts up beyond the current 4-inch display found on the iPhone 5 or looks to release a smaller display iPhone for a price that is much more competitive than what it already offers.

Keep in mind, notes from analysts aren’t always accurate and often, they are flat out wrong so it could be that none of these things come to fruition. However, we have heard multiple times that Apple may be planning to release its next iPhone sometime during the middle of this year with reports suggesting that Apple may already be testing the iPhone 6 with iOS 7.

Before the launch of the iPhone 4, Apple used to announce at WWDC in June and release the iPhone shortly afterwards. And if rumors and analysts are to be believed, it could do so again in 2013.

    Well now it seems like apple is trying to keep up with android??? Ha!! Bigger screens, colors etc??? They should have done this years ago??? If they release iPhones sooner now? That’s said, they should lower the price of them too!! Who’s gonna pay 199 from a 16 gb to 399 for a 64 gb?? If they really got good they would make it to where u can remove battery and have mini sd memory cards like android devices until then I don’t trust apple but time will tell, if they had them two options I may buy another iPhone?? What’s so hard to have removable memory cards so you don’t loose everything and put in new card for new things instead of apples way and a removable battery too that’s a huge plus if apple did so!!!! Come on apple you can do this and I bet a lot of iPhone buyers would agree??

    Apple’s fall to the bottom is going to be so much harsher than Blackberry’s was. It’ll look good on them too.
