Apple iPhone 6 may not be released until October 14th

Apple iPhone 6 may not be released until October 14th
In general, we've been assuming that Apple would be sticking to the usual timeline and releasing the new iPhone in September like it has been for the past couple of years. But, this is now the fourth time in the past two months that we've seen a rumor pointing to October as the release time for the iPhone 6.

The first rumor came from Japan's Nikkei news service, and the second came from Taiwanese supply chain sources. Both of those rumors claimed that the iPhone 6 and the iWatch would be released at the same time in October. Since then, we've heard that the iWatch has been delayed, likely until next year; and now, an unnamed source for MacRumors is putting the exact release date for the iPhone 6 at October 14th, which is the same date that the iPhone 4s was released back in 2011. The source claims to have been part of a retail store meeting at which a senior Store Leader said that October would be "incredibly busy" for Apple and for the store, and that the 14th would be an “immense” day for Apple. 

There are a couple reasons to be a bit wary of this report. First of all, October 14th is a Tuesday, and Apple tends to release new iPhones on Fridays. Second, the rumors have been putting the announcement of the iPhone 6 in the middle of September, and Apple never has more than a two week gap between the announcement and release.

Just curious. Anyone like me get bored with their devices ( primarily their os ) and switch back and forth? I started getting bored with IOS and made the switch a couple of years ago to Android. Small screened iPhone kinda killed it too. But now, I'm getting kind of bored with the Android phone I have. The phone is killer and reminds me of when I got my first iPhone back in 2007, but now thinking of going back.

That is just nostalgia, but think for a second, what will you do when you get the iPhone. You need to get the device for the sake of need, not want, otherwise you won't stop bouncing between them. It is fine to do that if it is within your means, but no one OS or device will satisfy you for long.

agreed with Finalflash. That's another big reason besides the reason listed in my first comment, with going back to iPhone.

Oh, it's all want for sure. I could use this Note 3 for at least another 2 years before needing an upgrade. I'm a phone whore.

Yessir. Been through about 10 phones over the past 6 months. Though I'm intending to go back to iPhone and to stay there. For some reason it's the device that hit most of the spots. Not ALL, but definitely most.

yeah been on the same boat, used android phones, iphones and windows phones, I like the most because of consistency are the windows phones and iphones.

Dude, rock iOS and android like the Jedii does. 5s, note 3 = tech bliss. I get bored with both of em, just charge one up and go.

I kind of use both now. Have an iPad at the house and the wife has 5s which I mess with occasionally. I use the Note 3 as daily driver, though.

I agree with switching, in fact I have been switching carriers ever 2 years.

I've been going with the best of both worlds. I have an M8, a S4, and an iPhone 5S. Might not be the most up to date bunch but I enjoy switching between them.

Wonder if it could possibly have a 14nm chip inside?

Because you stood in a line for hours you have the right to be pretentious. Sorry Tim, I don't buy that for a second. Like I said before, I have no problem with Apple products, it's just the snooty ass way they market them. And most of the time that doesn't even bother me that much. It's just this one particular commercial that plays all the effin time now. It's a label and product that many feel is inferior to other products on the market now, it's not Special. I know Apple wants to uphold their "hip" and "trendy" image, but there has to be a better way than trying to shame people into buying one.... isn't there?

How are they marketed in a snooty manner? Apple is making commercials like these that are meant to warm people's hearts and make them want to support them:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v76f6KPSJ2w ...while a certain OEM is just taking shots at other ones. "Many" don't feel it's inferior, as the the general market is not interested in pixel counts or the best quality screen, just the one that works. They don't say their phone is hip and trendy, people think it's hip and trendy. They don't really shame anyone.

Apple's advertisements are elitist lifestyle porn. Some might call it "snooty".

It's the old ifans that gave them the Starbucks self entitled image imo. Then SJ and Apple capitalized on it to it's success.

Can you show me some of those "snooty" advertisements? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTjejvnBJfU this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmTpgSMJ96c maybe this one?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdeVaT-zZt4 or this one.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODmfmUWqlSA I've never seen a commercial so snooty and elitist. UGH

Arte, do me/us a favor, leave DJs wife and life out of the equation to get at Dark. He drives a bus, not a yet dustbin truck, respectable. (I drive a wrecker ftr) Probably a really nice guy to BS with on route, his admiration of Apple is not offensive like Mxy/96 etc... He even packs a Note. Never use Troll-fu on those not throwing Apples or Tiles, bad juju comes to haunt Jmtc

This is terrible. This is right before Halloween. Many parents won't be able to buy as much candy for the kids because they just splurged on an iPhone 6 or two. Think of all the disappointed children, Apple.
