The latest iPhone 6s release date rumors tease a faster upgrade for users who are trying to decide if they should buy the iPhone 6 or wait for the iPhone 6s.
The iPhone 6s release date is likely coming this fall. A new report claims Apple is preparing for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus release and may be able to start shipping and selling the new iPhone earlier than usual.
Apple typically announces new iPhone software at WWDC in the summer and then announces a new iPhone in the fall. For the last four years, the new iPhone release arrived in September or October.
The new iPhone 6s release date rumor claims Apple increased part orders already. The United Daily News in Taipei reports that this will allow the iPhone 6s release to come faster than previously expected. The publication specifically mentions a chance of the iPhone 6s release date in August.
UDN cites industry sources for the information and mentions the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus as the names for two new iPhone models that will arrive in 2015. Although there is some interest from consumers in an iPhone 7 release, Apple typically announces an “s” model before a major upgrade.
iPhone 6s rumors indicate Apple may surprise consumers with a major overhaul for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but we do not hear that Apple will skip directly to the iPhone 7 name.
New reports are far from a confirmation that the iPhone 6s release date will come early. There are many factors at play when Apple chooses an iPhone 6s release. One rumor earlier this year suggested Apple would delay the new iPhone due to good iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales. A late iPhone 6s release date seems as unlikely as an early release coming from parts being ready for the new iPhone models.
During the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus release consumers waited weeks to get the iPhone they wanted. The Apple Watch release date delivered the same long delays, just online instead of in stores. The supply of iPhones at launch are another important factor in the release of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s.
Apple and carriers will also need to take into account the upgrading timing of many consumers who may be waiting until September to arrive and allow the shopper to upgrade at an off-contract price.
If you are waiting to buy a new iPhone, the odds are good that the new iPhone 6s release is this fall. It’s too early to get your hopes up for an August release date, but some consumers are already in waiting mode for an iPhone 6s release. With a likely timeframe of three to four months, it is not the shortest wait, but it is time to consider seriously what the new iPhone will offer over the current model.
Ultimately there are tremendously few people who know when the iPhone 6s release date will arrive. An educated guess based on historical date suggests late September.
Apple frequently sticks with the same design for the iPhone “s” model and delivers enhanced features and exclusive software features as part of the upgrade.
Below you can see the latest iPhone 6s rumors and leaks that help us understand what Apple might show off later this year. We should see some new hints when Apple shows off iOS 9, which we expect in early June.
