A new iPhone 6 release date rumor continues to put the focus on September for the new iPhone in China, which will likely arrive at the same time as a U.S. iPhone 6 release date.
Multiple iPhone 6 release date rumors already point to September 19th, 2014 and now a flyer shows two new iPhones with a date of September 19th.
The iPhone 6 release date details continue to solidify on a single date in September, as we move within 2 months of the potential iPhone 6 release date.
At this point we are in the period where a real iPhone 6 release date could surface, but this latest leak is merely supporting evidence. We’ll need more details and information than a flyer to deliver the smoking gun that outlines the exact iPhone 6 release date and price.
The new iPhone 6 release date rumor arrives from Weibo, a Chinese social network that is the source of many iPhone 6 rumors. Although this lines up with the earlier iPhone 6 release date leaks, this could simply be a flyer that some user designed in Photoshop using iPhone 6 concepts.
It would also not be the first time that a third-party retailer created flyers for an unannounced iPhone or smartphone based on rumors. GSMInsider shares the flyer showing the iPhone 6 release date as September 19th and the iPhone 6 price in China.
The flyer shows a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 price of roughly $850 USD and $1,011 for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6. These are prices in CHina without a contract. Although some rumors suggest Apple plans to boost the iPhone 6 price in the U.S. it is unlikely the company plans to increase the price by this much in the U.S. It is also quite likely that Carriers will offer an iPhone 6 price of $199 on contract for a smaller model.
This is sketchier iPhone 6 release date rumor, as recent leaks suggest the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 release may come later in the year or possibly as late as 2015. We share this as additional prep for an iPhone 6 release date in the fall, that lines up with multiple rumors and Apple’s earlier iPhone release timing.
In late July Reuters reported Apple plans to hire over 100,000 workers through a partner company who assembles the iPhone. This is to start iPhone 6 production with a timeline suggesting the September 19th iPhone 6 release is achievable. This rumor arrived just as word of an Apple Store opening in September and on the heels of many other interesting iPhone 6 release date rumors.
Additional iPhone 6 release date rumors that point to September 19th include;
- German Apple Store blocking vacations in late September
- German carrier tells customers to expect the iPhone 6 on September 19th
- Report of iPhone 6 release date in late September
A late September iPhone 6 release date makes sense for Apple’s fiscal year as well as matching up to the past two iPhone release dates. Apple’s fiscal year ends on September 27, 2014. An iPhone 6 release date on September 19th would allow 10 days of iPhone 6 sales before Apple closes the books on a year with few new Apple releases.
We also expect to see iOS 8 arrive just a few days ahead of the iPhone 6 release to bring new features to the iPhone 5s and other older devices. This could also time up with the OS X Yosemite release date, which will bring additional
iPhone 6 rumors point to multiple iPhone 6 models in 2014 to better compete with Samsung and other companies offering multiple size devices. The iPhone 6 design suggests a thinner iPhone with curved edges and rounded corners as well as a power button on the right side. Inside we expect an updated Apple A8 processor with more power to enable new iPhone 6 features not found on the iPhone 5s and iOS 8. Look for a camera upgrade and Touch ID added to the new iPhones. The display will likely include a Sapphire cover or component making the iPhone 6 more durable.
