Only eleven more days until we’ve officially had no new hardware from Apple in the first half of 2014. To be fair, that’s pretty much what everyone was expecting, but the second half is poised to be a tad mental.
Two of the many iDevices rumoured are the iPhone 6, and the iWatch – Apple’s first foray into “wearable tech”. As we patiently await the official launches, yet more rumour juice is being spilled.
For starters, UDN reckons both the Apple iPhone 6 and iWatch will launch “at the end of the third quarter”, or “September” if you prefer. Yep, that’s pretty much what everyone expects. Next!
The smaller 4.7in Apple iPhone 6 will rock Corning Gorilla Glass, and supposedly the Californians hope to ship 60 million units by the end of the year. That’s a lot of iPhone 6s, though a lot of people seem to be holding off for this fabled “bigger iPhone”.
As for the larger 5.5in Apple iPhone 6, it’s again rumoured to have a sapphire crystal display, and again we’re told it’s proving problematic. Some have suggested it’ll be delayed till 2015, but here UDN says it’ll merely arrive in limited quantities throughout Q4 2014.
And finally, the long-rumoured Apple iWatch. The story here is that the device is so far failing to meet Apple’s lofty expectations, hence taking longer than originally thought.
In particular, Apple is said to be concerned about power consumption when the iWatch is on standby.
And that’s the end of that, for now. Here’s to three more months of Apple iPhone 6 and iWatch rumours.
