Latest iPhone 6 Rumors 2013: What Can Be Expected?
Now that the event in which Apple will introduce to the world two its new products, the high-end iPhone 5s and the in-budget iPhone 6 is around the corner, some of these rumors have made their way on the internet and among Apple lovers. The iPhone 5s will show the new technologies by Apple but the audience is equally excited about the new not-so-pricey iPhone 6.
- The New Form Factor
The new iPhone 6 (Let’s call it that for the time being) will be seen in a more scratch proof plastic polycarbonate shell of a body. This will probably be one of the biggest differences between iPhone 5 and iPhone 6. Unlike the body of iPhone 5 which is made of anodized aluminum, this new model is expected to be more sturdy and scratch resistant. The iLounge editor-in-chief in January said, “Cross between the iPhone 5, the fifth-generation iPod touch and — wait for it — the iPod classic”. The rectangular shape like the iPad, the tapered bottom like the latest iPod touch and the 4 inches screen of the iPhone 5, this phone will substantially be made of plastic but the look of the phone will be the mixture of plastic and metal classiness.
When iPhone 5 was about to be launched, rumors were flying far around about the change in the metal used for its body and it being lighter. The phone was also assumed to be a little taller than 4s or 4. These rumors were one of the many that came true. To all the people who keep letting their phones fall off from their hands, this could be one of the most relieving rumors.
- Apple Adds Color
Since the iPhone 4 has been launched, we have only seen white and black iPhones. They undoubtedly look beautiful but they do get a little monotonous. So, the new iPhone 6 may see some new candy colors. The budget of iPhone 6 will be way less than that of iPhone 5 and the introduction of colors has given us one more reason to be happy about this new model. The new plastic surface will flaunt 5 colors. The front surface will be black irrespective of the rear color.
Thought one may not be surprised if Apple provides us with white or other colors when this phone comes out. These 5 colors will be red, green, yellow, blue and white. This rumor can be expected to not come true if we compare it to the rumors that were flying around when iPhone 5 was about to be launched. It was expected that Apple would use its IP rights to liquid metal technology flaunt a liquid metal look not a glass one.
- Will We See NFC this Time?
When iPhone 5 was about to be released, it was expected that it will do NFC, but this was revealed to be false. The rumors about iPhone 6 also point towards the fact that it will have NFC. Can we expect it to be a part of all the features that this new iPhone will flaunt? Not sure. We will have to wait for the time to tell us that.
- iOS 7 in Newest iPhone
This new model is expected to be pre-loaded with iOS 7. This year, Apple has almost changed the look of its new iOS. It now resembles more to android with more curved icons and the notifications bar that is seen in android phones.
- Will iPhone 6 support 4G LTE?
When iPhone 5 was about to come out, it was rumored to be able to support 4G LTE. But this proved to be false once the phone was actually released. Although, it is expected that the iPhone 6 will support 4G LTE, let’s see if this rumor comes true with this installment of the iPhone.
- When is the New iPhone Coming Out?
Apple is expected to introduce iOS 7 on September 10 and then release it nearly on 18th September. It is rumored that Apple will most probably release one of its two new iPhones on September 20. The rumors around the release are spreading like fire on the internet; some expect the high-end iPhone which is 5s to be released in September and the low-end iPhone in June 2014. Some expect both to be released on the same time. When we compare it to the Apple iPhone 5 release date, it was expected to come out in October but it was released on September 21.
But now that we are talking about two phones to be released only time will tell what will come out when. Keep browsing while we get you more updates in this regard.
