People who believe that new Apple’s phone launch in Spring 2013 or in June of this year has strong believe that United States technology giant will follow it’s six-month up gradation cycle. While who predict October 2013 as launch date for iPhone 6 claim that gap of 1 year between iPhone 5 and its predecessor is logical.
Earlier, Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed rumors of an iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 with a larger screen during the Apple Q1 2013 earnings call, telling investors Apple picked the right screen size when upgrading to a 4-inch Retina Display.
Experts believe that in typical Apple fashion Steve Jobs’ follower Cook carefully dodged directly talking about rumors and upcoming products when answering a question about the growing screen sizes on Android Smartphones.
– Nexus 4 – 4.7-inch
– HTC M7 – 4.8-inch (rumored)
– Samsung Galaxy S4 – 4.99-inch (not confirmed officially)
– Samsung Galaxy Note 3 – 6.3-inch (not confirmed officially)
iPhone 6 release date!!!
There are lots of speculations and estimates about the iPhone 6 launch date. Technology blogs and market people expecting that new member of iPhones family will be launched six months after the iPhone 5 or it will come 12 months after the iPhone 5.
Another strong assumption about launching date is “Spring 2013”. Slow production or less demand is another reason behind iPhone 6 and some sources quoting iPhone 5S spring launch. The idea that Apple will change to a six month cycle is based on claims by ex Apple CEO John Sculley. There is also a strong opinion that Apple can’t wait a whole year as Samsung already captured the category leadership slot first time in Smartphone’s history.
Some Tech gurus suggesting that Apple will begin preliminary builds of the iPhone 6 in March in preparation for a June or July launch.
iPhone 6 Features
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has arguably the best track record in forecasting future Apple products, said the next-generation iPhone, likely called the “iPhone 5S” or “iPhone 6,” will feature an integrated fingerprint sensor directly in the “home” button, likely replacing the need for usernames and passwords on the phone.
Neil Hughes claims in his write-up at Apple Insider that “Apple is expected to launch a new iPhone this year with a fingerprint sensor hidden beneath the home button — an intuitive design that could be difficult for competing Android and Windows Phone devices to copy.”
