iPhone 6 Release Date Rumors Firm Up

The iPhone 6 release date rumors are falling in to place in support of a September iPhone 6 release in the U.S. and abroad. Two new rumors shed light on Apple’s iPhone 6 release date plans, which may include a late September iPhone 6 release date, following a special event early in the month.

After months of waiting and rumors, the potential iPhone 6 release date is just two months away. Several reports point to September 19th as an iPhone 6 release date, or a window of a week around this date and the latest iPhone 6 details support this timing.

The official iPhone 6 release date will not come to light until the end of Apple’s iPhone 6 announcement, but by the end of July it is not out of the question to know when the iPhone 6 release date will take place.

iPhone 6 Release Date rumors continue to point to a September release.

The latest report also adds to the likelihood of a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 release date this year, after another report revealed potential roadblocks that could push the release of this larger model back to late 2014 or even into 2015.

In order to meet the rumored iPhone 6 release date of September 19th, Apple needs to start iPhone 6 production soon, and that’s just what the company is doing according to a new report from Reuters.

The publication cites the Taiwan’s Economic Daily News and separate report from a state-run China news publication in a new report on progress towards the iPhone 6 release date. 

Apple plans to start iPhone 6 production for the 4.7-inch model before the end of July, and will start the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 production by the middle of August. This is in line with earlier iPhone production rumors and the timing makes a September iPhone 6 release date possible based on past ramp  up timeframes.

Two companies likely to perform the actual iPhone 6 assembly are hiring 100,000 and 10,000 workers according to a state-run news publication. This lines up with a iPhone 6 rumor from June. It is also to be expected for a device that involves a significant amount of hand assembly.

Apple will start making a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 this month according to a new report.

Another small hint at a September iPhone 6 release date is the preparation of an Apple Store in Hannover that is under construction and renovation with a goal of opening in September. Apple opens new stores without a product launch, but it is not unheard of to time an opening with a new release, or just before the release to drive more consumers to official Apple Stores.

So far the most concrete iPhone 6 release date rumors focus on a single date. If these iPhone 6 rumors are correct the iPhone 6 release date is September 19th. This is a Friday in late September, but ahead of Apple’s fiscal year-end, which lines up with past iPhone release timing. It also makes sense given the rumors of production starting in July.

German Apple Stores are reportedly blocking off vacation in late September, a German carrier told customers that the iPhone 6 release date is September 19th, and a recent Chinese report indicates the iPhone 6 release date is also scheduled for September 19th.

This is for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model that rumors suggest will be the flagship iPhone 6. We also expect a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, as outlined in the Reuters report, but it may arrive later in the year.

iP{hone 6 buyers can expect the above details for the new iPhone, based on recent reports. Some of these rumors, like the camera are still in flux and could change significantly before the iPhone 6 announcement.

    STILL only 1 mb of RAM? Is this a joke? The internal hardware specs are years behind everything else. If you want a crappy phone like this iphone 6, why wait? You can get a cheap, old android or windows phone with these same specs right now for about $100 on ebay and no contract. Apple really is nothing without Steve Jobs.
