We’ve heard plenty of rumors about when Apple would officially announce the iPhone 6, but when will you be able to get your mitts on it? While a simultaneous announcement/launch would be nice, it’s likely not th case this time around. If the latest reports are true, we’ll have to wait a full month before seeing the bigger iPhone in stores.
According to Mac Rumors, who spoke to someone who spoke about “an internal Apple Retail Store meeting”, the iPhone 6 will hit stores on October 14th. To save you the trouble of looking at a calendar — that’s a Tuesday. Apple traditionally launches their devices on a Friday.
The Tuesday launch was given no foundation, but the source claims it will be “immense”. They also said the entire month would be big for Apple, refreshing talk of a second iPhone 6 and iWatch (or iTime, depending on what side of the fence you’re on with that one).
That’s also the time we can expect OS X Yosemite an iOS 8, and we are still hearing rumors of new iPads around then. Macs have seen a small upgrade already, with even the iMac getting improved specs and pricing.
Almost completely new hardware, new software, and a public that will at least want to gawk at the iPhone 6. The Apple Store just might be even more of a madhouse come October if this is true. The Tuesday launch may suggest Apple knows the iPhone 6 will be a big deal, and are trying to limit lines a touch. It could also mean they’re confident in the supply chain pulling through and bringing as many devices as necessary.
I guess we’ll see come the Fall.
