At WWDC 2014's keynote, Apple announced iOS 8 - the upcoming version of iOS 7, and the operating system that's going to come preloaded on the new iPhone. And while the iOS 8 beta is already available for developers, it's been announced that the wider public will get iOS 8 in September. This comes to show that Apple probably isn't going to deviate from the time frames that it's been following in the last couple of years. Obviously, Apple isn't going to release the iPhone 6 before the release of iOS 8, so it's only logical to assume that the iPhone 6 will arrive in the fall as well. Sorry, guys, but the iPhone 6 isn't likely to arrive earlier than usual.
If we have to make an educated guess (and we totally have to make one), we'd say that the iPhone 6 release date will be in the second half of September. The iPhone 4s got released on October 14, 2011, but then the iPhone 5 got released on September 21, 2012, and the iPhone 5s got released on September 20, 2013. With this in mind, it does seem very likely that iOS 8 will launch around the middle of September, with the iPhone 6 following shortly after. Actually, one of the latest rumors claims that the iPhone 6 is going to be released on September 19.
Naturally, while we believe this to be a rather accurate guesstimate of the iPhone 6 release date, please bear in mind that it should still be considered filed in the 'speculation' category.
What do you guys think - is there any chance left for us to see the iPhone 6 earlier than expected this year?
