New iPhone 6 Features We’re Likely To See In September
You may have heard that the iPhone 6 could be unveiled on September 9 so we thought we’d take you through what we might see at the exciting launch event.
While Apple is yet to confirm the date, tech website Re/Code has been right about these events in the past so we’re taking their claim that “Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9” seriously.
Here's a run-down of the rumours on what to expect from the next-generation iPhone 6:
As we all know, it’s going to be bigger. There are two larger screen sizes, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch, but the latter won’t be released until the end of 2014 or early 2015.
The new handset won’t just be larger but it’s said to be rounder and thinner. If the leaked photos are to be believed, the outer shell will be a lighter, aluminium body thats’s more like the current iPod Touch.
The increase in screen size should give us an increase in screen resolution too. But there are fears this might mean battery life won’t increase, even with a larger battery.
A while ago we heard that the new iPhone will have a scratch-proof, sapphire display. It’s still unknown if this is true but we certainly hope so!
A bigger handset has meant extra room for the more powerful A8 processor that powers the iPads. And it won’t stop at extra power, there’s likely to be more memory options, including a 128GB model.
Selfies are ever-so important these days, so a high quality phone camera is essential. A bigger sensor and better optics (maybe 13-megapixels) are in the rumour mill.
Apple has already revealed iOS8 so we should finally see all of its snazzy features in action in the iPhone 6. We’re expecting more fitness and health related stuff, as well as an update on what Apple and headphone brand Beats have been up to.
So, are you excited or unimpressed? Let us know on our Facebook page!
A video supposedly showing the iPhone 6’s new 4.7-inch display has been released and even a sharp knife can’t scratch its surface.
