Apple iPhone 6 launch date: September 9 according to several sources

Apple iPhone 6 launch date: September 9 according to several sourcesWe’re probably just a matter of weeks from the inevitable iPhone 6 launch, and while Apple still hasn’t said anything official (it likely won’t for several weeks yet), a trio of publications appears to have settled on a date almost simultaneously.

In fairly heavy pencil, you can go ahead and write “iPhone 6 launch date” in your diary under Tuesday, September 9.

That’s the gist over on recode, which doesn’t care to specify a source; Bloomberg, which credits “a person familiar with the plans”; and The Wall Street Journal, giving credit to “a person familiar with the matter”.

September 9 fits nicely with Apple’s vaguely annual launch schedule, the iPhone 5 having launched on September 12, 2012, and the iPhone 5s/5c following on September 10, 2013.

It’s still anyone’s guess what we’ll see on September 9, but the consensus is we’ll at least meet the 4.7in iPhone 6. The much-discussed 5.5in model may or may not be in attendance, with some speculating that it might slip till 2015.

The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are just about visible on the horizon, too, though it’s largely accepted that they’ll arrive in October, ditto the iWatch.

As per tradition, expect the iPhone 6 to go on sale within a couple of weeks of its launch, with iOS 8 dropping a couple of days beforehand.

I don't believe there is any intention to launch the rumoured 5.5 incher. At all.
The iPhone 5S sales figures are excellent. The 4.7in model (assuming that is real) will sell the sh*t out of every phone released now and later this year - even if it ran iOS4 and came with a vga camera...
Apple have no reason for such a desperate move. Well... I think...
