“Few events work the technology world into a frenzy quite like an iPhone launch, and this year’s anticipated event looks set to be no exception,” Rhiannon Williams writes for The Telegraph.
“The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was announced on September 9, 2014, the 5s and 5c on September 10, and the 5 on September 12, so the second week in September is a good bet. The last two events have been on a Tuesday and the 5’s announcement was a Wednesday, so September 8 or 9 appears the most likely announcement date. According to reports, Wednesday September 9 has been pencilled in,” Williams writes. “What will it be called? Good question. Going by the above pattern, and assuming that Apple keeps a small (4.7-inch) and large (5.5-inch) version, designating the latter ‘Plus’, we’ll have the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.”
“However, there are also rumours that we will get a third phone this year – an iPhone 6c. Earlier in May Apple appeared to leak a picture of what could be the iPhone 6c on its site – what looked like an updated iPhone 5c with an Touch ID sensor on its home button. However, it’s more likely this was a poorly-rendered picture of an original 5c, and the image has since been removed from the site,” Williams writes. “Despite all this, Apple could choose to buck its own naming convention and go straight in with the iPhone 7.”
