Apple are expected to launch a 4.7 inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5 inch iPhone 6, previous rumors had suggested that both handsets would launch in September.
Recent reports have suggested that the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 will launch in September, and the 5.5 inch model may launch in October, although according to a new report from DigiTimes, Apple may actually launch the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 a couple of months after the 4.7 inch model.
When Apple launched their iPhone 5S last year, they also announced the iPhone 5C, the majority of iPhone customers ended up buying the iPhone 5S, and sales of the iPhone 5C were lower than Apple had expected. The company is apparently looking to make sure it doesn’t make the same make again this year, by launching two versions of the iPhone at the same time.
The different timetables have been set as Apple does not want to repeat the mistake it made in 2013 when it launched the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c simultaneously, said the sources.
That would mean that we will see the new 4.7 inch model of the iPhone 6 in September, and the 5.5 inch model would launch a few months later, possibly in November.
There have also been rumors of production issues which could cause the launch of the larger version of Apple’s new iPhone to be delayed.
If the latest rumors are correct, then we will see the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 landing in September, along with iOS 8 and also the new Apple iWatch.
