iPhone 6 Release Date In May - Report
There are no confirmations yet for any of the devices. These are just predictions and leads from various sources. Analysts often put out predictions as a guide for the market and consumers. It is best for people to wait for the official announcement to know the final details.
As mentioned, Apple seems to have newfound interest over big screens. Many of its competitors now have bigger screens. However, for Apple to increase the screen size while offering the same Retina resolution means the company has to raise the number of pixels. This also means that developers should rethink their applications or software to fit the new screen dimensions of the iPhone 6. It can usher in a number of changes both from Apple and the developer's side.
Regardless of the screen size, there are also other reports saying that Apple plans to create the screen with sapphire resistant synthetic material. According to DisplaySearch analyst David Hsieh, the Cupertino-based tech giant has been testing two screen sizes. He also said that the company has been evaluating a 4.7 inches with resolution of 720 × 1280 and a 5.7-inch screen with full HD 1080p resolution.
There are analysts saying Apple will release the phone earlier because of competitors like Samsung. The Korean tech giant plans to release its Samsung Galaxy S5 by first quarter of 2014. Releasing the iPhone 6 around May will catch up with the competition. There is no word from Apple about this yet.
