Apple is focusing on Sept 9 for its next iPhone unveiling. Although invitations have yet to go out to push outlets, Re/code has learned that the company planned a “big media event” on that day. The date itself shouldn’t come as a big shock as it falls well in line with the company’s annual launch cycle — the iPhone 5s/5c and 5 were declared in September 2013 and 2012, respectively, while the 4S was launched in October 2011.
As for what exactly the firm will have in store can only imagine, but speculations have frequently pointed to a bump in display size. In particular, Apple’s next iPhone is anticipated feature a slightly redesigned body, and comes in 2 sizes: a 4.7-inch model that will release first around September, and maybe a 5.5-inch version a while later. Along with the bigger display, the iPhone 6 may include a more durable sapphire screen, and the normal range of performance and camera changes.
Apple has reportedly ordered up to 80 million iPhone 6 models from manufacturers for 2014, in what could be the company’s largest iPhone start yet.
