iPhone 6 event to take place on September 9?


According to the ever-reliable John Paczkowski at Re/code, Apple’s next big media event is scheduled for September 9th. Given the past trend of iPhone launches, it’s safe to assume this will be the event in which Apple will introduce the iPhone 6 (or whatever it ends up being called).

Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9 — a date to which Apple numerologists will strain to attribute significance. As with September events past, the focal point of this one is to be Apple’s next-generation iPhones, which are expected to feature larger displays of 4.7 and 5.5 inches and run speedy new A8 processors. Apple declined comment.”

In previous years, when there’s been an event on the Tuesday or Wednesday, Apple will traditionally release the device to the public a week and a half later, on the Friday. That gives us a release date of September 19, with a pre-order date of one week earlier on September 12 (if Cupertino decides to give us pre-orders this year). In 2013 Apple famously didn’t offer pre-orders for its flagship iPhone 5s, but did make the iPhone 5c available. With it only having happened this way once, it’d be foolish to claim it as an established pattern.

From what we’ve seen so far from leaks and rumors, the iPhone 6 is likely to have a larger display and have an entirely new design. The edges on all the early prototypes have been rounded, with an all-metal back featuring similar black plastic antenna-gaps to the HTC One series.

    I have already purchased an iPhone 6 4.7inch case in advance from a well known manufacturer.

      No, no you haven’t.

        Yep, I sure have.It’s certainly going to be thinner than the 5S.

    One more month and Samsung will have to stop those comparison to the iPhone 5S device which came out last year. Samsung will either come out with a updated s5 and note 4 in the fall. Samsung your time is over.

    Obviously case manufacturers must know exactly what the next iPhone is going to look like so they can have the cases ready for release at the same time as the phone.

      Of course they have the device. I’m not going to believe they are able to produce all those cases within a week or two after the iPhone announcement. Apple needs cases to have available at the time of purchase. The only version they don’t have to worry about is the S version.
