Apple set to unveil the iPhone 6 on 9th September
The Californian technology giant has traditionally launched its key products during September, and according to the Telegraph, past release timings also indicate that the Apple iPhone 6 could then go on sale to the public from Friday, 19th September.
Since the introduction of the first iPhone in 2007, Apple has launched a new iPhone every year, selling over 500 million units of these popular smartphones to date. The new device would be the ninth iPhone model, and is rumoured to become available in a choice of screen sizes for the first time; a smaller 4.7 inch device which is said to be launched first, followed by a bigger – one might say phablet sized – 5.5-inch model.
According to Forbes, the announcement date for the iPhone 6 could somewhat be related to Apple’s revenue guidance. The company’s revenue guidance for the September quarter is $37-$40 billion, which would achieve a 3 per cent increase year over year at the mid-point and 7 per-cent if it hits the high-end of the prediction. To reach these numbers, the new iPhones would need to be announced and shipped early enough, as the quarter ends on 27th September.
