Apple iPhone 6 tipped once more to launch on September 19th; $70 million in sales expected for 2014

Apple iPhone 6 tipped once more to launch on September 19th; $70 million in sales expected for 2014
Last month, we told you about a report out of Germany involving the Apple iPhone 6. Reportedly, Deutsche Telekom was telling customers to expect the latest iteration of Apple's smartphone to be in stores on September 19th.  Today, a report out of China is confirming the September 19th launch date for the next iPhone. And since September 19th falls out on a Friday, that would seem to give some legitimacy to the rumor.

According to the same source, the 32GB version of the Apple iPhone 6 will cost 5288 yuan ($850 USD). That currently is the price for the 16GB Apple iPhone 5s in China. The 64GB model will be priced ay 6288 yuan ($1008 USD). These prices are believed to be for the 4.7 inch version of the phone.

Meanwhile, another report, this one from the Topology Research Institute, estimates that the 4.7 inch model of the Apple iPhone will bring in $70 million during 2014. Keep in mind that if the phone launches on September 19th, that leaves a bit more than 14 weeks for the iPhone 6 to ring up enough sales to equal $70 million. TRI expects the 5.5 inch model will bring Apple another $10 million in 2014. Add up the figures and you get $80 million in iPhone 6 sales, forecast by TRI, for 2014.

Thanks for the tip!
