The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus arrived last September and recently rumours have been building in anticipation for the next release. We thought we would share everything we have found on the much-awaited new iPhone so you can be up-to-date with the latest news.
Firstly, it is expected to be released in September – Friday September 25th according to an internal email leaked at Vodafone (Source: Mobile News) and it is likely that two or even three separate sizes will be available – however the name is still under much speculation. The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are amongst the favourites, however some believe that it could be the iPhone 7 with significant changes being implemented (Source: PC Advisor). There are even rumours of an iPhone 6c, since Apple were thought to have leaked the device on their site (Source: Tech Radar). No-one knows for sure so we will have to wait and see if Apple surprises us.
In terms of design it is expected that Apple will keep the popular Space Grey, Silver and Gold options but will also introduce a new Rose Gold option (Source: Tech Radar). More rumours suggest some new design features, including a Touch ID display in which the fingerprint sensor is built-in to the entire screen and also a sidewall display similar to that Galaxy Note Edge (Source: PC Advisor). Interestingly, it has been suggested that the new iPhone could bring a huge camera update allowing DSLR quality images with a two-lens system. This does seem plausible as Apple recently acquired LinX, a camera technology company, however it might not be used in the next iPhone. (Source: MacRumours).
Force Touch, which differentiates between levels of pressure on the display and brings up additional controls, is currently on the Apple Watch and is thought to be being made available to the new iPhone. Whilst the introduction of the tough Sapphire Glass has been an ongoing rumour, it seems unlikely to be in the next update (Source: Gizmodo).
With rumours accumulating we’ll have to wait and see what Apple has in store for their next iPhone… Meanwhile we will keep you up to date with the latest news.
What is certain is that we will have cases ready for this new iPhone launch! So keep a look out!
