Consistent with earlier rumours, Apple's highly-anticipated next-gen flagship phone, the iPhone 6, is once again speculated to launch on 19 September, according to a recent report by Chinese website Tencent (Google Translated) via GforGames.

German wireless carrier Deutsche Telekom had earlier claimed that the iPhone 6 would release on 19 September, while citing leaked internal documents.

Release Date

The release date speculation for iPhone 6 falls in line with previous iPhone launches as Apple has historically favoured new iPhone launches on Fridays: iPhone 5 on 21 September, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c on 20 September.

Furthermore, if the rumour turns out true then we can expect the public release of the iOS 8 on 17 September as Apple traditionally releases major iOS software updates just a couple of days ahead of the new iPhone launch.


Speculations also point out the pricing details for the expected storage options (32GB and 64GB) with the iPhone 6 release. It is expected that the 32GB iPhone 6 will cost the same as the 16GB iPhone 5s at 5,288 yuan or $848.

On the other hand, the 64GB variant will reportedly cost you 6,288 yuan ($1008), while the 32GB iPhone 5s sells at 6,088 yuan.

It is ascertained that these prices could be limited to the 4.7in model of iPhone 6, as there is no word on price details for the 5.5in variant.


According to the rumoured specifications so far, the iPhone 6 is expected to ship in two display variants: 4.7in and 5.5in, with ultra thin design, narrower bezels and rounded edges.

The other key expected hardware specifications include a new A8 quad-core processor, an improved 8-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, 128 GB of internal storage, NFC, Sapphire glass display with LiquidMetal design, Wireless charging and ability to sync with Apple's rumoured iWatch.
