With WWDC 2013 now behind us, we can now get on to the subject of the next iPhone, although we don’t think there will be a big revamp, as we would like. It’s for this reason why we are more excited over the iPhone 6, which in theory should be released in 2014, and not this September like many of the silly rumors suggest.
However, that will give Apple more time to come up with a new game plan, as Reuters reports there could still be three models, one could be the much-rumored low-cost iPhone, and the other two a 4.7-inch and a 5.7-inch display. If this is the case, then we can see the iPhone 6 being more of a phablet, well one of the models anyway.
It’s hard to imagine that the iPhone 6 could be a rival to the Galaxy Note 4 in 2014, but this would be the case, as the S5 would have a smaller display. It will be the iPhone 6 4.7-inch model that would be more of a match for the Galaxy S5, although no doubt its screen would have increased, as will its overall design.
Tim Cook has already made it clear that they are not in any rush to release a larger iPhone, and so another year or so should give them the time they need to make certain all the issues have been ironed out, as they already said, they are not prepared to sacrifice quality over demand, which we think is a little arrogant.
Samsung has cornered the market with an array of smartphone devices, so it would be interesting to see how this would affect them if Apple were to offer three new iPhones next year, which would cater for those same markets Samsung does?
