iPhone 6 Latest Apple Inc Rumors

 Latest iPhone 6 Apple Inc Rumors

As world-wide Apple Inc lovers wait anxiously for news on their latest iPhone 6, the rumors start up once again about what people can expect to see.

Some industry media are expecting Apple Inc. to release two new models of iPhone 6 later this year. The new iPhones are said to be available in 4.7 and 5.5-inch screens. This would make both models of the iPhone 6 larger than the current 4-inch iPhone 5S screen. The screen’s glass is also said to be curved down along the edges.

The iPhone 6 is rumored to contain the same size 8-megapixel camera sensor that is currently on Apple Inc’s iPhone 5S. However, an analyst from Nomura Securities says that there will be several minor upgrades to the latest camera, even though getting a higher-resolution will not likely occur. One of the upgrades to the camera system is said to be an improvement with optical image stabilization.

Previous rumors for the iPhone 6 were saying that the next generation iPhone would have a 16-megapixel camera, but one will only have to wait and see if those rumors will turn out to be true. Apple Inc has been using an 8-megapixel camera on the last three generations of iPhones starting with the iPhone 4S back in 2011.

Apple’s iPhone 5S camera currently uses a sensor capable of 8-megapixels, but with more upgrades than the 4S including a bigger aperture, larger pixel size, software upgrades, and a new “True Tone” dual LED flash just to name a few.

Recently there was a down-turn in shares of Largan Precision, a major supplier of modules for camera lenses used on digital cameras, smartphones, tablets and other devices. Largan Precision was said to be supplying the modules for Apple’s 16-megapixel cameras but when rumors hit that Apple Inc was staying with an 8-megapixel camera, it sent investors flying.

Digitimes claims a supply chain source saying that the iPhone 6 will run a 20nm processor that will be built by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company.

As of Thursday another Apple Inc rumor started to surface around production of the iPhone 6. The rumor has it that Pegatron will fill as much as 50 percent of the new iPhone 6 orders. The company Pegatron is a current supplier to Apple Inc for their assembly of the iPad mini and iPhone 5C.

Recently the website C Tech claimed to be in possession of images of the iPhone 6’s metal frame. If the leaked photos are real, then they seem to back the rumors of the larger screen at 4.7 to 5-inches. The frame is also thinner at 6mm than previous iPhone frames.

Media in South Korea also supports the rumor of the thinner 6mm thick frame and issued a report stating that the next generation iPhone will be “significantly” thinner. Their sources are from Chinese companies that are part of Apple Inc’s current supply chain. These sources say the next iPhone will not be labeled the iPhone 6, but will carry the iPhone Air moniker instead.

The new 6mm thickness is much thinner than past models of iPhone. The iPhone 5S has a thickness of 7.6mm and the iPhone 5C’s thickness is 9mm. The iPhone 3GS would be double the size of the next generation iPhone at 12mm. That is only if the latest 6mm thickness rumors turn out to be true.

There is also an expected price increase predicted from Apple Inc on their new iPhone 6 than previous models. Unlocked, and iPhone 5C can cost over $500 in China and in other places it can cost over $700.

When the iPhone 6 will be available have experts split from May to September 2014. September has historically been the time of year when Apple Inc debuts their latest iPhone. Digitimes cites a source inside the supply chain that rumors Apple will launch the iPhone 6 in May 2014. It will remain to be seen exactly when Apple will release their next generation of iPhones, so the fans will have to continue to anxiously wait for its appearance while sifting amid more rumors.

    1996-97 Apple was “close” to bankruptcy and Microsoft gave the company $150 million infusion of cash. Jobs returned after a decade absence and the rest is history. As a 20 yr plus Apple developer/user and stock holder I’ve seen every device, OS and, innovation and misstep the company has made. Now, I watch a company once defined by an overbearing visionary transform itself once again. Stay tuned..the story of this company is not for the faint of heart, but I’m confident there is much more to come that will delight and amaze.

    You know what is so nice about the world? Every one can have his own opinion!
    When Apple was close to bankrupthy nobody was a fan, now that Apple has introduced the world of screen touch, and revolutioned the whole mobile devices, haters come and tell you what is wrong. Where were these people 6 years ago? Hanging around with a Blackberry, or a SonyEricsson?

    Christian- in the nicest way your opinion is WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    5S- might not have been an earth shattering redesign- but I guess the 34 Million Iphones sold in 4th quarter were garbage.
    IOS7 – Everyone loves- but you.
    Ipad Air- I asume that was a disaster as well?

    IN the pipeline- Iphone 6 later this year- and I hope this is the year they introduce the Apple TV Set/Monitor. But you are right Jobs was the only creative one in the company- YIKES!!!!!!!! Amazing how many Apple haters there are out there

    In my own opinion, the death of Steve Jobs also coincided with Apple’s downfall, not so much related to sales, although those have clearly been impacted as well, but related to what Apple use to mean in the past: creativity (in its purest form), innovation, groundbreaking technology and software. Now all we have is an S4 with a Apple sticker on it and mod-Android to boot. Let it be known that I have an iPad 4 and iPhone 5, and have had pretty much every Apple gadget out there starting withe the iPhone 3 and iPad 1. However, if the iPhone 6 turns out to be a major disappointment (as was the 4/4s/5/5S), showing only minor (yes, MINOR!!!) improvements to the technology and design, then I will most definitely opt for a new smartphone outside the Apple family. Apple, be careful, you are falling behind!!!

      You are so wrong.

        With respect, there is no wrong in this discussion and I don’t think Christian is an “apple hater”, he’s merely echoing the views of many out there who have been disappointed by Apple’s iPhone offering these past years.

    To be honest I’m quite in love with the size of the iPhone 5s and don’t think those of us who use the phone with our hands really want an iPad mini for the phone we use.. But we love our apple products because they really work for our professional and personal lives so Apple has some power over us… …iPhone Air a high possibility
