To be honest, it’s pretty much anyone’s guess when the iPhone 6 launch will go down at this stage, with people touting anything from June’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) to September.
For what it’s worth, some Taiwanese source reckons the iPhone 6 will launch in August, with the smaller model going on sale first and the larger chap following several weeks later.
Credit goes to India’s The Economic Times, which in turn credits Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, which in turn credits anonymous sources in the iPhone 6 supply chain.
It’s suggested that the iPhone 6 launch event will happen in August, and that the 4.7in model would go on sale that same month, with the 5.5in beast following some time in September.
To be fair, that’s not a particularly crazy notion. Back in October 2013, Apple launched the iPad Air alongside the iPad mini 2, and while the former went on sale the following week, it was almost a month before the latter was available to Joe Public.
Both models of the iPhone 6 are significantly larger than the 4in iPhone 5s, and resultantly some analysts propose that Apple might be able to claw a little market share back from its big-screened rivals. Android flagships generally start at 5in these days, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 isn't far off 6in.
