Apple's iPhone 6 launch tipped for June

It's just an opinion right now, but the idea that the iPhone 6 could be launched by Apple in June does come from a source with a decent track record in the mobile industry.

The world seems to be expecting the new iPhone model to launch around September, with two new models rumoured for 2014 in the past. The difference this time is talk of two different-sized models, both with curved glass screens.

However, Chinese analyst Sun Chyang Xu, who pretty much plotted the launch of the Motorola Moto X from day one, claims there will be two separate launches in 2014. Hos view is that Apple will showcase a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 this summer perhaps as early June. That will be followed by a larger 5.7-inch version of iPhone 6 in the autumn, presumably the usual time of the year we see a new iPhone.

Sun Chyang Xu believes Apple may start the trial production of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 as early as next month, with full scale mass production in May. An announcement about the new hardware could be at the Apple WWDC conference on 10 June 10. That phone will keep the 1136 × 640 pixel screen resolution of its predecessor, with the higher resolution reserved for the larger phone later in the year.

Why would Apple do that? Essentially, because its avenues for expansion are now pretty limited. The world has the iPhone, so Apple needs you to buy more. That could mean two big launches per year instead of one, which will certainly keep the money men happy.

Very much rumour right now, but a rumour from a man who knows the business and suppliers. So don't dismiss it too lightly.
