With the iPhone 5 heading for a year old, many are wondering what the iPhone 6 or 5S is going to offer us. Here’s a round-up of all the rumors we’ve heard so far:
iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 ?
The 5S and the 6 are 2 separate phones, not the same with different names. Nobody knows if the 5S will be released followed by the 6 or if the 5S has been scrapped.
Release Date :
Some say summer, some say fall. Some devices are expected to be announced in summer. Verizon have already slashed the price of the iPhone 5 and Foxconn are employing an extra 10,000 workers per week.
Plastic is the buzzword at the moment. There are rumors of a plastic iPhone but this is now thought to be the iPhone Mini, not the iPhone 6.
Another rumor says the next iPhone will have NFC and a better battery. NFC has not been announced officially.
iOS 7 :
iOS 7 is with the developers and is expected to be released in the fall. That lends credence to the rumors of at least one new handset this year.
One rumor says that the iPhone 6 will come with storage options of 16, 32, 64 and 128GB of storage space.
Home Button :
Apparently the iPhone 6 will have a massive IGZO display and no home button.
The iPhone 6 could be an IGZO technology, full HD affair. It could be in 2 different sizes as well. Other rumors include magic morphing technology and a transparent screen.
The iPhone 5 has Dual Core A6, the iPhone 6 will have Quad Core A7.
The iPhone 6 will have a 13 megapixel camera,although not so big.
Eye Tracking :
It’s possible that the iPhone 6 will have motion tracking of some description.
Better 4G LTE :
The iPhone 6 should be able to broadcast 4G LTE on more frequencies.
802.11ac Wi-Fi :
This is the highest speed Wi-Fi available right now and it’s almost certain it will be on the iPhone 6.
Wireless Charging :
This is a possibility and it may be capable of charging multiple devices.
