iPhone 6s release and keynote event dates revealed?

iPhone 6s release and keynote event dates revealed?
In what must go down as one of the more dubious iPhone 6s-related reports of the past couple of weeks, M.I.C. Gadget suggests that Apple's iPhone will begin selling on Friday, September 18th, with the keynote running exactly one week before. Citing sources of Foxconn -- Apple's main iPhone OEM -- the date does fall in line with Apple's previous September launches, but we're not too sure of the report's further claim that the handset will be announced on September 11th. A date with a back story that instantly resonates with everybody -- particularly those in the U.S. -- it seems very, very unlikely that the country's foremost company would hijack a day of national mourning to announce its Next Big Thing. 

With Fridays in September usually favored by Cupertino in releasing its annual smartphone upgrade, Friday 18th could be right on the money. It was, after all, Friday 19th September 2014 that both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus graced us with their radical redesigns. But the keynote for those devices, which also gave us an early peek at Apple Watch, took place ten days earlier on Tuesday, September 9th. Thus, if anything, we'd expect the showcasing of the sequels to fall on Tuesday 8th this year, and certainly not on 9/11.

The report on the matter notes that "insiders from Foxconn" have apparently confirmed the information. We're taking this with a pinch of salt for now, but with suggestions that a pink iPhone model is on the horizon, perhaps anything's possible. 

With talk of a faster LTE processor from Qualcomm, Force Touch, a much-improved camera and other enhancements, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are gradually generating hype as September looms.

But are you, our wonderful readers, excited to see what Apple has in store? Let us know in the comments.

To be fair, the until the recent update to IOS, the iPhone has not required 2GB of RAM to function smoothly and remain responsive at all times. The latest iPhones running 1GB still are extremely snappy. Again, numbers don't always mean better.

Because it isn't as they claim "the most advanced OS". The More you advance the more resources you need.

"To be fair...." I love how one of the biggest PA trolls has now all of a sudden become reasonable now that he's considering purchasing an iPhone.

Wow dude, you really hold grudges don't you? Kinda sad. I actually completely forgot you even existed until I recognized that pissy attitude of yours. If you think I'm a troll, then clearly you haven't been paying any attention to the comment section here. I'm a former iPhone user, I switched over to Android, and now that IOS and the iPhones are becoming more and more advanced and opened, you insult me because I am considering going back? Since you know me so damn well, you SHOULD know that my two biggest complaints of Apple/iPhone have been much been resolved. 1-Big screen iPhone 2-Make IOS expanded, customizable, and multitasking. I have NEVER ever said that the iPhone was laggy or needed all these high end specs to function. I have always gave the iPhone credit on being more responsive, smooth, and reliable. I really hope you can get over your cry baby attitude towards me, grudges are NOT healthy.

LOL, 9 times out of 10 it's YOU who responds to MY comments with your very poor one-side attitude, and now I'm the one with grudges? Keep twisting the facts buddy! And while we're at it, let's do a quick Google search with Roryrevolution and RAM.... ".....But hey if you want to be a blind fanboy and think you don't deserve more RAM after 2-3 years of having just 1GB, that's cool too" - RORYREVOLUTION; 09/22/14 "You are telling me that you can justify a high end flag ship phone only having 1GB of RAM after 2-3 years later just because the OS runs fine? I'm sorry but that sounds like BS to me" - RORYREVOLUTION 09/22/14 You sir, are a hypocrite. But don't let me stop your sudden stroke of intelligence. Stupidity was never a good look on you.

Are you stalking me dude? Googling me and all, kinda creepy. Want me to apologize? Oh please, random internet guy, please forgive me for my comments. I can admit that I was wrong about the iPhone 6/Plus, now here's your trophy. How about you get your head out of your ass and realize sometimes people change their opinions on things after they realize that they were misjudging it? So maybe instead of "googling" me, how about you get over it already? I was wrong, wrong about the iPhone. Happy now? Or do you still need further counseling?

Hahaha, are you mad that I know how to use the internet??? You're always mean-spirited and hostile, and now that you've shown yourself to be a hypocrite you turn into one of the biggest whiner babies on the site. Yes you've been called out, CHILL OUT...life goes on. No need to get so neurotic and emotional.

You have been holding a grudge against me for over a year now, waiting for the moment to strike and start s**t with me. Instead of being a mature adult and just letting it go, you decided to bitch and moan about nonsense that happened nearly a year ago. If anyone needs to chill out, if anyone is the biggest whiner on this site, if anyone needs to be told that life goes on, it's you. I have never, ever had anyone hold an internet grudge against me before. Only with you. I have butt heads with several people on this website and none of them has purposely tried to start s**t with me before, only you. Like I said before, I forgot you even existed, you clearly have had a grudge against me and could not wait to leave your smark ass remarks. I already admitted I was wrong, I have been trying my best to be as level headed and fair to both the iPhone and Android. If that makes me a hypocrite, so be it. I don't let the past bother me as it clearly as still bothered you. This is the last thing I will say, make a truce with me and stop this pointless crap.

And one last thing before you say something else stupid. Those remarks that I made that you quoted was when the iPhone 6/Plus were first announced. Of course I was disappointed that they were only coming with 1GB of RAM. A lot of people were, even fanboys were. Fast foward time and I have seen how well the iPhone 6/Plus has performed even after nearly a year that it has been released. However, that still does not excuse Apple for not putting 2GB of RAM on their iPhones when 2GB has been the norm for years before they were even announced. So while yes my past remarks were harsh, they still remain true.

You said it's bullsh*t if anyone justifies 1GB RAM, but then you just justified 1 GB RAM by saying "the iPhone has not required 2GB RAM," "the latest iPhones running 1GB are extremely snappy," and "numbers don't always mean better"... I'm not mad, I don't hate you, I just think you're full of sh*t. But like you said, I'm just a random internet guy/gal so it honestly doesn't even matter what I think. I'm ready to move on if you are :)

Good post yo! The trolls don't understand that the OS is getting more RAM, cause it needs it. 1 gig isn't enough anymore, so Apple is making the necessary adjustments. Trolls will troll...post 1&4

Your post is stupid, cause the iPhone is catered to an entirely different crowd than the N5. They both have their fanbase, and both will sell well. You left that whack ass post just for green thumbs. If you're not gonna buy an iPhone, and it's so "meh", then head to the N5 articles. Troll.

I don't like iPhones or androids but I must admit they must be very good as sales go my wife has an iPhone 6 and it works smoothly with 1 gb ram it's not that I trash it actually it is a very good device it's just I don't like it at the end it all boils down to choice.

17. gaming64 unregistered

It's the trolls and haters on this website that makes the phone look bad. I recommend you buy the 6 Plus if you are in for the best iOS experience on a phone. It's really good and don't believe the trolls here, cause the camera has great lighting, vibrant, and has great detail. BTW, hows the Pureview?

6 plus might not be good option especially when 6S plus is around the corner.

30. gaming64 unregistered

The 6S Plus isn't released yet although I expect it to be a true predecessor(2 GB RAM, iOS 9, and maybe an improved camera.

What is wrong with everyone.. The next iphone is getting more RAM, cause it needs it...until now 1 gig was more than enough, holding 2012 specs and almost performing in the top 5 phones.. Now with IOS slowly opening up, the IPhone will need more RAM so Apple is making the necessary adjustments. Why are people so aggressive and upset with the fact The iphone has only ever need 1gb to provide a similar performance to the S6 for example?

If iphone 5S and 6 had 2 gb ram they would have done perfectly good in future too as they have powerful CPU and GPU, only lacking thing is RAM. Apple made ipad air 2 future proof right? Why didn't they same with iphone 6 at least.

Why does the iPhone cost so much with 2012 specs? Performance and Brand.. Performance.. With 2012 spec the IPhone always come out on the top 5 phones in everything from speed to graphs performance.. Its basicly running as fast and as strong as any android flagship.. because of IOS is a lot more tightly controlled and efficient than android thats open and needs a lot more power to provide the same performance. Second is Brand.. to maintain a strong brand you do have out price your competition.... the reason why flag ships cost so much isnt because of the hardware inside or its number of RAM, instead it is Performance and Brand.
