Almost all the top mobile OEMs are going big in terms of display size. Every flagship is getting bigger and wider, however, same cannot be said for Apple. While Apple did stretch iPhone a bit, it still is not that large and Cupertino based company has definitely shown some resistance to increase the display size. With iPhone 6, rumors are going stronger by every single day that Apple is probably going to launch the next flagship a bit wider that its present models. It may not be a phablet but it would definitely be a bigger iPhone. This past year, Apple introduced two iPad models: offering thinnest tablet with iPad Air and introducing Retina display in the Mini models. It is assumed that Apple might offer something more than just increased size in terms of iPhone 6 display.

Lately, we have been seeing Apple patenting various techs and what reports and rumors suggest we might just witness even better touchscreen.

Memory and launch date:

Apple is going to take the memory stakes higher this time by allegedly offering a 128GB variant. Good for the users as many of the users have been complaining about the lack of memory on their device. Cloud or not, some people still like to have it all on their devices.

Apple’s next flagship iPhone 6 should be launching September October, keeping up with previous trends. But, rumors suggest Apple is planning an early launch this year by going for May. We aren’t though very hopeful about this much early iPhone 6 release date.
