Best Buy has slashed prices and offered amazing deals for iPad Mini and iPhone 5s, hinting iPhone 6 release date nears.

CNET reported iPhone 5s will cut 50 percent off its regular price in all Best Buy branches. Generally, the basic iPhone 5s model with 16 GB internal memory will be available for only $150 and the colorful iPhone 5c will be priced at $50 during the special offer. If you wish to avail the promo, keep in mind that you can only avail it until Feb. 22.

Apple seems preparing for an enormous space for iPhone 6 release date with all these clearing of all inventories. According to some analysts, the next flagship iPhone of Apple will be released around June or July.

Another hint that signals the imminent iPhone 6 release date is the number of rumors, leaks and concept designs that flood the Internet recently.

Sonny Dickson, a famous Aussie blogger, revealed some possible iPhone 6 images. He added with the recent published images that the iPhone 6 will be thinner with a bigger screen, "The design will be like a cross between the current iPad Air and the iPod Touch." But, as a disclaimer, he claimed he is not sure whether it is "the real back housing" of iPhone 6.

Another concept design photos were made by Jermaine Smit, showing an iPhone with metal case and thin bezels. In his design, the lightning port is also notably made smaller.  Apart from this, there are also a number of other iPhone 6 concept designs from Simone Evangelista, Shaik Imaduddin and Ran Avni.

There is no official date that points accurately to iPhone 6 but some rumors said it might be in June during the Worldwide Developers Conference or if Apple will stick to its usual iPhone release date patterns, we might see the iPhone 6 hit the shelves in September.
