Apple likely won’t give us a great deal of notice for the iPhone 6 launch event, so between now and then, for the next 5-6 weeks, we can expect every man and his dog to take a wild stab in the dark.
The latest anonymous sources have pinned the tail on “mid-September”, which, yeah, pretty much jives with what we’re expecting.
It’s 9to5mac relaying the iPhone 6 launch guesstimate, with credit going to “sources briefed on the plans”.
They reckon the second or third week of September is looking likely for the iPhone 6 launch event, which probably means September 9 or 10, or September 16 or 17 (the launch almost certainly going down on a Tuesday or Wednesday).
Again, the notion of the 5.5in iPhone 6 lagging behind in production and testing is reiterated, and as such it’s suggested that Apple might bring only the 4.7in iPhone 6 to the party.
Of course, the other thing to consider is iOS 8, though it sounds like it’ll be done and dusted in time for the iPhone 6 launch, regardless of when it happens. The software side of things is certainly more flexible, in the sense that some features could always be held back till iOS 8.1. If necessary.
A second Apple launch event is mooted for October, at which we might meet the iWatch and/or iPad mini Air and iPad Air 2.
