The Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reports that Apple will release the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in August, with a larger 5.5-inch or 5.6-inch model to be released in September. Apple will produce 80 million iPhone 6 units this year alone, according to the same report.
An August launch of the iPhone 6 would be a different strategy for Apple, as the company has launched the past three versions of the iPhone in September or October. The news also contrasts prior reports claiming that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will launch in September, with the 5.5-inch version not launching until later this year or early 2015 due to issues with the device’s battery life and display technology.
Jefferies analyst Peter Misek claims that Apple will possible raise the price of the iPhone 6 by $100. He also claims that the iPhone 6 will get a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera.
