The sought-after iPhone 6 is set to be released in March 2014, which will include new specs and features not found in iPhone 5S.
Reports claimed that Apple will introduce the iPhone 6 by first quarter next year, as addition to its two recently released smartphones. The iPhone 6 is expected to take the original launch slot of iPad in March. Previously, Apple ignored its strict calendar when it unveiled the iPad 4 and iPad mini in October 2012.
One of the most probable iPhone 6 features is the larger screen display. Some consumers are quite disappointed when Apple decided to retain its old 4-inch screen. Some users commented the screen is too small compared to other smartphones in the market. They said most high-end handsets and iPhone rivals are already packed in a 5-inch screen, which makes Apple trail behind.
Another new feature is the faster 64-bit A7 processor. Apple introduced the iPhone 5S as the first smartphone that uses this type of processor. Apple will include the same processor on its upcoming phablet.
iPhone 5S boasts of its better and clearer graphics using M7 GPU chip. iPhone 6 is seen as the fastest phablet in the market if Apple will include the 64-bit processor and M7 chip. The iPhone 6' graphics will have a separate processor.
Apple included the fingerprint sensor embedded on the home button. Apple thought that a biometrics will personalize the use of the smartphone while adding more security to the users.
The iPhone 6 may also include a larger storage, which is essential in optimizing the smartphone-tablet hybrid features. It is speculated that this smartphone will have storage of up to 128GB.
However, the Cupertino-based company has not yet commented on these early rumors.
