Rumours Of iPhone 6 Production Plans




Apple is preparing to begin on production for the iPhone 6 according to reports. Rumours have also circulated about the supposed release date in June of this year. Reports suggest that Apple is already undergoing trials for the next generation the iPhone after the release of the iPhone 5 in September of 2012. Apple is set to begin production of the device in March.

Other strongly believed rumours that the iPhone 6, believed to be named the iPhone 5S, will bear a 4.8-inch display screen. This is an increase to the particularly large iPhone 5 screen which displayed a four inch screen.

These rumours are also accompanied by newer rumours from China that the new iPhone will enter the ever growing ‘phablet market’ this year as Apple will create what is said to be a smartphone with the characteristics of a tablet. Industry experts have also suggested that the new device will be equipped with a super HD camera Near Field Communications technology to up the handset’s credentials as a digital wallet, improved battery life and a huge 128GB of storage. The seventh generation iPhone is said to be available in various new colour options including red, silver, slate, purple, green, blue, yellow and pink when released.

Some are naming it the iPhone 6 already however due to findings of a leaked image of the back of the new phone; it is more likely to be a slightly more advanced version of the iPhone 5. The design does differ but not greatly. This is set to be a slightly more developed iPhone 5 which should hold a faster processor and improved material in which is more resistant to scratches and other damages. These leaks also claimed that the device should be launched within the first half of 2013 and presumably the summer.

This may all sound like a bit of a rush as developments have not even begun yet however, it would be a tactical move as it would completely rival the Samsung Galaxy S4 which is also expected to land around that time. Even igniting rumours would cause fewer sales for Samsung.

iPhone 6 Rumours




If you look around you, you’ll probably notice that every other person owns an iPhone, whether it’s the latest model, or an older iPhone 3, 4 or 4S. Apple has in many ways been the trend setter in the smartphone industry, and has shaped the phones that we see on the market today. However, with only one release per year, the American super-giant has an increased level of pressure to make each new iPhone even better than the last. With Samsung making a huge dent into Apple’s popularity, and with so many impressive Android smartphones hitting our shelves, Apple needs to pull it out of the bag with its 2013 release. So what can we expect to see?

Name: iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S?

The bulk of the rumours circulating around the next iPhone seem to lie in the name of the next Apple device.  Rather than releasing the iPhone 5 back in 2011, Apple instead chose to launch the iPhone 4S as an update from the iPhone 4.

Typically, an ‘S’ is added to the name of the existing model of iPhone when the changes between the devices are subtle and retained within the phone’s software, with no alterations to the body, design or features of the device.

However, when Apple fans wait for an entire year to get a glimpse of a new iPhone, it seems almost a let-down to get handed an exact replica of the last model, with just subtle software changes. That’s why I am hoping, almost rather than predicting, that Apple will listen to its fans and release the iPhone 6.

Design

The iPhone rarely tends to falter far from the traditional curved edge design with its physical navigation button. However, the biggest rumour circulating about the iPhone 6’s design is that it will be released in a variety of colours, rather like the iPod. How likely this is to happen, though, is debatable. After all, the one thing that the iPhone represents is style and quality, and producing it in a rainbow of colours might detract from the phone’s original appeal.

Other speculations suggest that the iPhone 6 will continue to up the size of its screen, potentially up to a massive 4.8 inches, to mimic the Samsung Galaxy S3. The current iPhone 5 has a 4 inch screen, and this was an increase from the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4’s smaller 3.5 inch displays. However, a massive jump to a 4.8 inch screen might just be a step too far for Apple designers, especially as it will be perceived as a move simply to follow the large-screen trend. And after all, Apple sets the trends, it doesn’t follow them.

NFC chips

All mobile phone manufacturers seem to have the letters NFC on their lips at the moment. NFC (Near Field Communications) is largely designed to enable users to make payments electronically and safely from your phone, and is said to revolutionise the way we purchase either our weekly food shopping, or even our furniture and clothes. While there are rumours about Apple being in talks with an Australian security company over using fingerprint technology to make money transfers even safer, it would seem that Apple might be going that one step further.

According to reports, Apple is working on a grand scheme which will enable us to use our iPhones as an almost cash point. Essentially, the way that the application will work is by telling your iPhone that you need to get hold of, say, £20, because there is no sign of a cash point in the vicinity. Your iPhone will then tell you where the nearest iPhone user is, using GPS, who is prepared to sub you the £20 you need. Once this transaction has been made, the amount will be deducted from your iTunes account and will transfer to your trusty Samaritan’s account, along with a small fee from Apple. And ta-da; your iPhone becomes an instant cash dispensing device.

Wireless charging

Finally, a rumour which is likely to become reality regarding the iPhone 6 lies in wireless charging. We’ve seen Nokia do it with the Lumia range, and now news has leaked that Apple has filed a patent to create its own version. However, in true Apple style, the iPhone’s wireless charging device is rumoured to be bigger and better than Nokia’s own creation, with the iPhone wireless charger being able to charge a device from up to a metre away.

Summary

So there we have it; just a selection of some of the wild and wonderful rumours circulating the iPhone 6 (or iPhone 5S). With only one release per year, though, Apple knows that it can’t afford to make any mistakes, and a disappointing release which demonstrates few changes might prove disastrous for the American super-giant.
