If industry sources are to be believed, Apple enthusiasts can expect the launch of the next iPhone as early as September 25.
Apple Insider reported on Thursday, quoting a Chinese language website, that Apple might announce the iPhone 6 by September 15, ten days ahead of formally launching it in the first group of countries.
Apple Insider, however, has its doubts, considering that Apple has always launched a product on a Friday and September 25 is a Thursday. Price-wise, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, a 32 GB model, is speculated to cost around $850.
Another rumour that has taken the internet with a frenzy is talks of a new 5.5-inch "phablet" version of the next iPhone being dubbed the 'iPhone Air'. Mockups of this alleged new phone that have already surfaced all over the internet, show a sleeker gadget with a larger screen and rounded edges, competing with the likes of HTC One.
