iPhone 6 release date: second half of September

iPhone 6 release date: second half of September
Following the WWDC 2014 keynote, we were able to use some of the hints Apple let out to come up with a guesstimate about the release date of the iPhone 6. According to the info we're working with, the iPhone 6 isn't coming earlier than this September. In fact, we believe the iPhone 6 release date will be sometime in the second half of September. Here's why we think so.

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?

OMG so happy the Nexus program isn't being cancelled Looking forward to Android Silver as well, but I'd probably still prefer a Nexus (until Project Ara)

I have a good news and a bad news for you people. Let me start with good news : 64-bit Android PDK is around the corner. Chances are good that Nexus6/Note4 are 64-bit machines. Now the bad news : Only the kernel will be in 64-bit. And no, I'm not joking. It's Google who's joking.

Even so, I'd rather have a phone for half the price on which I can customize ultimately anything- to the point of bricking it than have a phone on which I can't change the theme.

yes Apple should release hardware at a software event. make perfect sense to me.

Heated for no reason. Clearly this wasn't going to be an iPhone 6 event. What made you think it was? Rumors? Lesson learned.

"The WWDC 2014 keynote has ended, and while this was a strictly hardware-related event" Really? I could have sworn there was one or two minor software-related announcements...

Yeah, strictly a software event. Talk about lazy writing...

I wouldn't be too hard on Ray. It's a Monday and there have been a lot of announcements to keep track of. It's easy to go into brain-melt mode. It sure looked funny though!

It seems the most likely scenario is that the iPhone 6 comes with iOS 8 and iOS 8 is full of bugs and problems, way beyond even all the problems that iOS 7 had. So unless you are glutton for punishment or a slave to the iRapture, there is no rush to buy the iPhone 6 until iOS 8.1, sometime around March 2015.

Ok, and now show me how is iOS 8 full of bugs and issues and then, compare that to iOS 7 beta.

Well, iOS 7 buginess will be hard to beat but I think they can do it. In iOS 7 they literally changed nothing and added quick settings. Almost all of their problems came from that one addition and it was a lot of problems. In iOS 8 they have added a bunch of things including interactive widgets and notifications so expecting a toxic hell stew like never before this time.

Ok, and now... ...if you were Apple would be your objective to beat iOS 7 Beta release in buginess ? ....what problems were there because of control center addition and how would you solve them ? .....how does that compare to total amount of bugs in iOS 7 Beta release ? ......what would you do to prevent iOS 8 falling into the "toxic hell stew category ?

I am a little upset about absolutely zero hardware being released. iOS 8 looks great but really was hoping to see the iWatch

agree not launching any hardware at a software event called "World Wide Developers Conference" is just absurd.

Kinda like how the Android Wear software was shown at Google I/O developer's conference using Samsung and LG Hardware. What was Google thinking? Couldn't they just show the software on a slide show without the demonstration on a new product? Absurd!

Yeah so incredibly disappointing they are releasing it in September... If they relased it in august it would be a little bit less than incredibly disssapointing that they are releasing it in august.
