article imageNew report suggests iPhone 6 launch sooner than expected

By Milton Este     May 16, 2014 in Technology
It's that time of year again. Apple is about to announce the next generation iPhone 6 and rumors are spontaneously generating here and there. However, as we get closer and closer to the launch, rumors generally become more reliable.
A new report surfaced suggesting what many already claimed Apple is currently working on for the iPhone 6 launch.
Starting off with the launch date, German Apple blog iFun claims the date is not July or August, but pushed back to September. The report claims that German Apple Stores will restrict employee vacation time in September to ensure all hands on deck in preparation for the launch.
This coincides with Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo's prediction that the iPhone 6 will launch in the third quarter. Proven to have an accurate track record, the launch will most likely take place some time in September.
This delay is said to be caused by supplier issues. Battery cell supplier issues and the costly sapphire display materials may be pushing the launch date further.
Specification wise, Apple is definitely playing around with display sizes despite declining to comment on this rumor. Apple is said to be working on two iPhone 6 variations differing primarily by screen size.
An earlier 4.7 inch retina display iPhone 6 is expected to be followed by a 5.5 inch retina display. The bigger screen sizes will still follow the 300 pixel density retina display standard.
Resolution wise, the iPhone 6 is expected to support the 1704 x 960 display. These figures were arrived by scaling the 16:9 aspect ratio consistent with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 5S.
It's strange to hear Apple is jumping on board with Near-Field Communication (NFC) chips. This raises the question as to what Apple has in plan for their iBeacon feature as they instead decide to take on integrating NFC chips?
More updates are on the way.
