iPhone 6 5 New Killer Specs & Features

4.7 inches and 5.5 inches Variants

According to the photos uploaded by the Australian blogger, Sonny Dickson, the iPhone 6 will come in two sizes. A 4.7inches variant, which will replace its predecessor and a 5.5 inches variant, which will be Apple's first phablet.

Tough and Slim Build

It has been rumoured that the iPhone 6 will have Liquidmetal as the dominant material for its casing, which means that the next flagship smartphone of Apple will be virtually indestructible. Also, it has been reported that Apple is set to ditch the 3.5 mm audio jack for a Lightning universal connectivity that will cut the size of the iPhone significantly.

iOS 8

Although Apple dropped to mention the iPhone 6 at this year's developer's conference, it unveiled the iOS 8 at the WWDC 2014 and revealed that its upcoming device will be powered by this latest software.

iWatch integration

A leaked screenshot, allegedly showing the iOS 8, has an icon grid five wide and six tall, which shows an app named Watch Utility. The app is presumably where the iWatch will be setup and controlled. The app is notably joined by two other new apps, CarPlay, and Healthbook, which makes sense as the iWatch is expected to have fitness tracking capabilities.

Sapphire coating

According to BGR, sapphire is confirmed as part of the iPhone 6 release date. The tech giant's sapphire manufacturing partner is said to ready to deliver volume shipments of the extra-durable coating material.

"I believe that (GT's) sapphire operations will have ample supply to cover the iWatch, the 4.7-inch iPhone and the 5.5-inch iPhone with full sapphire cover glass in 2014," analyst Matt Margolis as quoted by BGR.
