Apple has finally set a date to announce its new iPhone 6, iOS 8 and hopefully iWatch/iTime in an upcoming event at its headquarter on September 9. According to Re/code Apple is soon going to send media invites for an event on September 9. Since Apple always announce it’s new iPhone in the month of September it’s only logical to think that the Cupertino tech major is launching its much awaited products in the upcoming event.
The electronic giant is long rumored to launch 2 iPhones this year one with 4.7 inch screen display and other with whopping 5.5 inch display screen that would make it the first Apple phablet. Currently, relatively smaller screen size is considered Apple’s biggest weakness in the smartphone market as the latest iPhone 5s features only 4 inch display. While most Android smartphone flagship offer approximate 5 inch plus display screen.
Apple has long avoided adoption of big screen in smartphone design following founder Steve Jobs philosophy that compact devices should be easily handled by one hand. However, this time Apple has perhaps chosen market sentiments and demand over previous reasoning. iPhone 6 will also feature Sapphire display which is considered shack and scratch proof as Sapphire is considered on of the toughest gemstone available.
If alleged leaked images of iPhone 6 were to be true then next apple smartphone is going to have much sleeker design which will make it look like a small size iPad Air.
Earlier this year Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote a letter to employees in which he mentioned that Big changes are coming to Apple. Wild guessing from the letter would be that Apple is going to have much more surprises up its sleeves this time.
The event will also bring out the truth about iWatch/iTime rumors. It notable that Apple is reportedly working on a smartwatch for over 2 years but the Cupertino based company has not comment on it as of now.
