iPhone 6 launch date confirmed as Apple sends out invites for September 9th
Apple has sent out invites for their September 9th event with only the date and a vague message saying “Wish we could say more”. It is now believed that the iPhone 6 will be officially launched on the 9th of September, 2014.
When the iPhone 6 comes out, its expected to compete with the industry’s finest smartphones including HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G3, Xiaomi Mi4, Huawei Ascend P7, Nexus 5 and Sony’s Xperia Z2. All of these smartphones have already been launched and are already on sell in various parts of the world. If the iPhone 6 will beat the LG G3 to the efficiency accolades, or the HTC One M8 in terms of design, or the Galaxy S5 as a waterproof smartphone, it’s yet to be known. But now we know the date, and we should be ready to see what Apple has in store for us.
It’s not the iPhone 6 alone that’s expected to launch on the same event, there’s more. The iWatch. This will be Apple’s first wearable device and will move to compete with the yet to be launched but viciously competitive Moto 360, Samsung’s Gear S and LG’s G Watch R among several other smart watches. Motorola’s Moto 360 will also be launching soon, but it’s almost likely that the Moto will be launched after Apple’s iWatch. Apple’s first smart watch will be expected to shake the market tracking fitness and health and there have been several speculations about the wearable device.
We are also expecting Apple to launch the larger iPhone 6, which has been dubbed iPhone 6L, or also the iPhone Air. Reports in the recent weeks have indicated that there will be delays in the launch of the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 due to problems in manufacturing the humongous iPhone, but since there is no official confirmation from Apple regarding delays, it’s best to keep our appetite on the high. But it’s pretty obvious we shall be seeing the 4.7 inch iPhone 6 on the 9th.
Other devices that will be seen are the iPads. The successor to the iPad Air has been called iPad Air 2 and there have been leaked images showing what this iPad looks like. The iPad Mini has not been spoken of much but it is in the cards. There have also been rumors of a huge iPad, bigger than the iPad Air by 3 inches, so it may be about 12.9 inches. Apple is facing a big challenge on the tablet sector, with more powerful and cheaper tablets getting in the way of the iPad’s success. This release will be the best time for Apple to capitalize on the moment and get themselves out of the iPad mess.
