iPhone 6 launch early September, release later in the month?

iPhone 6 launch early September, release later in the month?It’s largely accepted/expected that the iPhone 6 will launch in September, but it’s time to start talking specifics.

Getting a little more specific, we’re thinking early September for the iPhone 6 launch date, and mid-September(ish) for the iPhone 6 release date. Even more specificity below.

Said specificity comes via MacRumors, whose “reliable” source says the iPhone 6 will launch in the “first or second weeks of September”.

That’s not too much of a stretch, considering the iPhone 5 launched on September 12, 2012, with the iPhone 5s launching roughly a year later on September 10.

As such, front-runners for this year’s iPhone 6 launch date are likely September 9 or 10 (a Tuesday and Wednesday respectively).

As for the iPhone 6 release date, well, given that the iPhone 5 was September 21 and the iPhone 5s was September 20, September 19 is looking pretty sweet this year – give or take a week.

For what it’s worth, mass shipments are tipped to start moving from China in the last couple of weeks of August, so if you’re willing to hijack a ship, you might be able to get your hands on the iPhone 6 even sooner.

Disclaimer: hijacking ships is WRONG, but yeah, I'll take an iPhone 6 if the price is right.

Finally, as if you need reminding, the iPhone 6 is supposedly coming in two sizes, specifically 4.7in and 5.5in, though it's not clear if the latter might arrive at a later date.

4.7 inches and 5.5 inches.

I don't see the point of that if the rumours are true. It's just like the iPhone 5'cheap' that wasn't cheap. What's the great difference in size? Why not 4.0 and 5.5 inches? Apple go from 4.0 inches to 4.7 inches? Considering that the iPhone 4 was 3.7 inches I'm not sure how many people would be happy.

Personally I don't like big phones, but I know I represent a minority on that one.
