Apple announced the date of the most expected event taking place this fall. Although Apple called it a media event, most chances are that the company will reveal the next generation iPhone on September 9. Until then, we will get a chance to see how Motorola’s next flagship smartphone looks like on September 4.
The latest iPhone 6 news is not great. Sources say that the next flagship suffers from production problems. Apple intended to create the thinnest iPhone possible. In technical terms, the company attempted to reduce the display to only one layer of backlight film. Unfortunately, the result was an under powered light source. As such, Apple was force to rethink the design and come up with a solution to adapt. The event took place earlier this summer, but with the launch date so close, suppliers are not sure if all the iPhone enthusiasts will have a chance to get the next smartphone during the first wave of sales. Japan Display Inc, Sharp Corp and South Korea’s LG Display Limited are the three suppliers of the iPhone 6 display.
The iPhone 6 news – excitement over new iPhone leads to historical rise of Apple shares
Despite the rumored production problems, Apple’s stocks rose to a historical high this week. Apple’s shares were valued at $101.47 on Friday and closed at $101.32. This week has been one of the best for Apple’s shares. Everyone is excited about the next devices to be introduced on September 9.
Due to the presentation of Android Wear by Google in June, a smartwatch is expected from Apple as well. Rumors, along with a close observation of Apple’s movements, convey the idea that iWatch will be presented in September. But not all analysts are so optimistic. Financial analyst Ming-Chi Kuo warns that Apple requires a longer period to prepare a new product launch. So iWatch may end up being launched in 2015. Apple was granted an iWatch patent last month.
The next iPhone may come in two versions, one of 4.7 inches and a 5.5 inches one. Rumored resolutions are 1704 X 960 and 1472 X 828, but nothing is known for sure right now. The 4.7 inches version could be launched first, with the bigger version being released at a later date, according to rumors related to production stages. The display lies once again at the heart of iPhone 6 news.
