There is a huge controversy now raging about the iPhone version Apple intends to launch in the next few months. While it’s the iPhone 5S that is almost a surety to be launched sometime in September, there are those who claim Apple might also be working towards a release of the iPhone 6 version as well. Many of the smartphone experts the world over have even come out with a tentative date for the release of the future iPhone versions. There are wild guesses doing the rounds about the new iPhone 6 release date.
For one, Stableytimes is citing the fire sale now underway at Wal Mart for the previous generation iPhone versions as an indication of the most talked about iPhone 6 to be released soon. The iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 can now be picked up from Wal Mart for as low as just $39 and $129. Many believe Wal Mart is up to clearing their existing inventory as they are expecting to get hold of the new iPhone sometime soon in the coming month and are therefore offering the old smartphones at such low prices.
Then there are those who claim the new iOS 7 operating system is almost ready for launch as has been stated by the developers testing it. Sources are also of the opinion that Apple has informed its retailers that they can expect the introduction of iPhone 6 in weeks followed by a market launch in a month. Some analysts are speculating the release date of iPhone 6 to be 27th September and have based their prediction on the fact that the iOS 6 was released exactly 100 days after it was announced in 2011. Therefore if Apple is to follow the same formula, then the iOS 7 can be expected to come out on 18th September. The iOS 7 happens to be the first major overhaul of the platform ever since its inception and there will be a hardware launch of equal importance to go with it, something that can’t be befitting to the iPhone 5S since it is a reworked version of the iPhone 5 device.
Then there are also those who believe Apple on the other hand is thinking of releasing iPhone 5S within two days of the release of iOS 7, that is on 20th September. To ensure there is less crowd frenzy at its stores, the iPhone 6 might be released on September 27th, just a week later. According to various other reports, iPhone 5S will be having a 4.3 inch screen whereas iPhone 6 will be having 4.7 or 5 inch screen to go with the current trend of launching smartphone having a bigger display. Then there is also the issue of Apple’s plans to include a fingerprint sensor in their future iPhone version and hence things could get delayed till December to ensure they have the technology in place before embarking on the launch of the device.
