Apple to announce 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 phablet at press event on Sept. 9
Multiple reports from credible sources are reporting that Apple will officially unveil the iPhone 6 on Sept. 9. The company is expected to use the event to show off both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6.
When Apple launched the original iPhone in 2007, the company decided to launch the revolutionary smartphone in the summer. The company kept to a summer launch for the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 4. Apple broke from tradition with the debut of the iPhone 4S by announcing the smartphone in October 2011. Since then, it has gone on to unveil each new iPhone in the fall and even shifted its iPad launches to the same season.
Apple is widely expected to announce two new iPhone 6 models in the coming weeks; a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch model that will both feature redesigned aluminum cases with rounded edges. We've already seen images of how the smartphones will compare to each other, how they stack up against rival smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, and Galaxy Note 3. Only the when was missing on Apple's plans for unveiling both models to the world.
It looks like the time has come and multiple credible sources are now providing an exact date of when Tim Cook and company will take the wraps off both iPhone 6 models. Re/code was the first publication to report that Apple will hold a special iPhone 6 media event on Tuesday, Sept. 9. The Wall Street Journal soon followed with its own report stating that "a person familiar with the matter" has told the publication that Sept. 9 is the day Apple will announce the iPhone 6.
A few minutes later, Bloomberg threw its hat into the ring and backed up both reports, also claiming that Apple will show off both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 at its Sept. 9 event.
There have been multiple reports suggesting that the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 could be in short supply due to manufacturing issues. As always, we'll have to wait for the official word from Apple regarding this date. We'll be sure to keep you updated on all iPhone 6 news.
