With Samsung’s Galaxy S5 out now for a few weeks, it’s time for Apple to try and play catch up. Rumours about the iPhone 6 have been gathering pace in the last few months and today Apple have confirmed a media announcement for the 9th of September. Although no specs have been officially released yet, leaks from Chinese manufactures suggest a screen size range of around 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, bringing the next iPhone in line with competing Android and Windows phones that have all adopted larger displays. Along with a larger screen, the iPhone 6 may feature a scratch resistant sapphire display, a thinner bezel and a massive 120gb storage capacity.
It is also very likely Apple will release two different versions of the handset as they did with the iPhone 5c and 5s with rumours the 4.7inch version will be named the iPhone Air.
While none of the leaks have be verified as authentic, they have come from an array of different sources and they match up with previously leaked design schematics and mock-ups. The high quality of many of the parts depicted in the images also points towards their authenticity, as does their similarity to existing iPhone 5s parts.
Apple have been losing ground to Samsung recently but the iPhone 6 maybe the turnaround they need.
