iPhone 6: Latest Rumours & Possible Release Date

Updated on July 3, 2013

Apple Still Tight-lipped over Future iPhone 6 Release Date

The big question on everybody’s lips is when in 2013 is when Apple's iPhone 6 will be released. Of course, rumour control is on overdrive at the moment as for the actual date, and Apple is keeping quite over it's new releases as normal. As for the iPhone 6, Apple will have to produce something extra special out of the hat to complete with their own iPhone 4s and more recent 5, which to many, is already a bit of a design classic. Despite its sleek lines and innovative glass and metal alloy construction of the iPhone 4, technology marches ever onwards, this time towards to the replacement of the unique alloy iPhone 5.

Most Wanted Features :

Removable Battery : The return of the removable battery will be a nice feature on the iPhone 6. While the battery on the iPhone 5 is bigger and has improved performance over its predecessor, it cannot be easily removed for replacement. A more powerful battery for the next iPhone is surely a must too.

Faster Processor : Is always desirable as both mobile software and apps get more and more hungry. How much more juice can Apple squeeze out of the A6 chip or do they have a new faster chip up their sleeve for the iPhone 6?

More Storage : With people needing to store more films, music, images and videos on their iPhones means that need for more storage is critical. Although, a 16GB, 32GB and new 64GB versions would cater for different needs, as not everybody wants to fill their iPhone full of thousands of tunes and visual media and will more be made of Apple's iCloud?

New Antenna : ‘Antennagate’ took some of the shine off the iPhone 4 when it was released last year, so hopefully Apple have learnt a lesson and designed a left hand proof antenna on the iPhone 6.

Larger Screen : A bigger screen that is edge to edge could feature on the iPhone 6. 3D graphics is another option for Apple on the next incarnation of the iPhone.

Super-Fast Mobile Broadband : Will the iPhone 6 be more abe to receive the new 4G as well as 3G networks? Also Apple’s Facetime really needs to be 3G/4G enabled to maximise this useful feature.

Better Voice Control : Could be greatly improved on from the iPhone 5 version of Siri. Voice control has the potential to be a key feature on a mobile, but as yet none have really worked that well. Any strong English or for that matter Scottish accent is real problem for voice control

Software : While Apple is expected to release IOS 7 in the fall, with even more features with a love it or hate it new look. Will the iPhone 6 see the release of IOS 7 at the same time? Only time will tell.

Design : Perhaps the iPhone 6 will feature completely different materials for the body and screen or will it just be a cheaper version of the iPhone 5?

Rumour Control : Other rumours floating about suggest that the iPhone 6 will be a pay phone similar to using a credit/debit card to pay for items. While in principle it is a great idea, getting shoppers and retailers to buy into this new technology is another story

Guess the Release Date - Well, unless you have stolen Steve Jobs’s crystal ball or kidnapped Apple’s A-team, your guess is as good as mine. Various dates have been quoted for the iPhone 6. It could be later in the year. The expected release of iPad 5 also affects the release date of the iPhone 6. Again, it’s just a case of wait and see.

1st April 2014 Release Date : If iPhone 6 is released on this date, it may also include unique features that will allow you to talk to and track UFOs, enables time travel, cures the common cold, feeds the cat while you are on holiday, replicates Belgium chocolate on demand, alerts you to restaurants that serve broccoli and controls the weather too….

      The iphone 4 that i use i haven't had any reception problems with it using the 850 mhz network here in Australia and i got 50 km range out of it and the phone call didn't breakup and in areas in australia that use 2.1 ghz does not go very far but 900 mhz goes about the same distence as the 850 mhz cell phone network and when 4g lte comes out here in oz it will start off with 1.8 ghz then when the analog tv gets switched off the 700 mhz 4g lte will start up but i do think it would be a waist of time if 2.6 ghz gets turned on the cell phone company's would get a lot of complants from customers and i complained to the tio about the 2.1 ghz network in my area where i am 10 km from the cbd and 2.1 ghz doesn't like hilly areas at all and i would be interstred to see the 1.9 ghz in the us and see how many km away from the tower it works but i am looking forward to get the 4g lte iphone when it comes out and i would get one that is not locked to any network and here in oz iphones are not locked if you buy one from the apple store but they are locked if you buy under contract through a cell phone dealer but you can get them unlocked and it is by law australians can get there iphones unlocked by the custumer

      I believe it will come out the same month as last year or around that. Look at the iPad and iPad 2 release date.

      You could quite possible be 'white'. But, it would be a bit of a cop out from Apple to do that. Again it's the wait and see game that Apple like playing...

      iPhone 5 is nothing but the white and slightly retouched version of iPhone 4. A latest version to iPhone 4 is still under mystery. However, the show on 2nd March by Apple will solve and raise many mysteries.

      We'll wait for it before making any more rumours onboard.

      Roger - Totally agree, would love to see that episode of Top Gear

      Adam West - (great name by the way) I can see you point, and you are probably right. Although, a lot people like the idea that you can replace the battery from your cell/mobile. We will have to wait and see...

      A good hub. I don't know why you mention the battery as an option; so far no iPods, iPhones or iPads have had removable batteries (you mentioned the removable iPhone battery "coming back"; it never existed!), and now Apple has stopped making computers with removable batteries. I'm sorry to say that I don't think we'll see any Apple products with this feature anytime in the near future.
