For the past few years Apple have released each iPhone in September.. Generally on a Friday, and around the 21st or 22nd.
As there’s currently nothing to suggest this news has actually leaked, it’s believed the German carrier may well just be guessing, based on previous release dates.
As the WWDC is suggested to be the event at which both the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 Air and 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Pro (dubbed by the media) unveiling, it’s not clear if they are both going to released together. Or on separate days.
News has leaked from an Australian source that the iPhone 6 may sport an illuminated Apple logo. Much like those seen on the back of MacBooks.
In what seems like an unlikely way for Apple to take the phone, the source has apparently managed to get his hands on an aluminium shell from the phone, with the relevant logo cut out.
As this information has not yet been verified, or indeed leak by sources closes to the business – it’s best not to get your hopes up.
It would also prove interesting to see what effect such a move would have on battery life. Which is already a bone of contention for many iPhone owners.
Sure it would be cool, but is it really practical? Would you want to shout from the rooftops that your holding the latest (and probably most expensive) smartphone on the market, as you walk home on that dark winters night..?
The shell also appears to back up rumours of a slightly larger iPhone, as it measures 4.7 inches. The current iPhone 5s is only 4 inches.
In a disappointing announcement tonight Brian Chen (a New York Times technology reporter) has announced that the split screen features believed to be the flagship change in iOS 8 will not be unveiled at the WWDC
I've been told that the split-screen feature for iOS 8 isn't ready yet and won't be shown at WWDC. Still a work in progress.
Soo.. With less then 1 week to go to the WWDC 2014 it would appear Apple’s stock price is really starting to hike up. There’s still a little to go before they reach the record of $705 in late 2012, but it’s certainly heading in the right direction. Forbes reported back in November last year 10 reasons why they think Apple will hit $700 again, so who knows – perhaps after next week their predictions will become true..?
There’s little doubt that this has something to do with what is about to be unveiled on the 2nd of June, and all the press coverage they are getting because of it. Perhaps its been spurred on by the almost definite unveiling of the smart watch..? Or maybe it’s the new OS X hardware which is rumoured to be getting lots of stage time next week..? Or maybe it’s the recent acquisition of Beats Music & Beats Electronics..? Or maybe even the recently rumoured home automation system..?
What ever it is causing the price hike, it’s making me a little sick that I still haven’t yet invested in some Apple shares!
