Apple Planning To Shift 90 Million iPhone 6s Units This Year, New Color Option In Tow

Written by  
In an attempt to capitalize and follow on from the successes that came attached to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple is reportedly planning a production run of record proportions for its next-generation smartphone. According to a new report, The Wall Street Journal is not only adding weight to the speculation that manufacturing of the iPhone 6s began back in June in preparation for a fall launch, but it’s also suggesting that Apple is demanding suppliers to ramp up production to produce a record number of iPhone 6s handsets in time for the official launch date later in the year.
If the numbers quoted in the article are to be believed then it seems that Apple could be looking to shift 85 to 90 million iPhone 6s units during the final financial quarter of the year. The Cupertino company managed to hit the spot with consumers with the launch of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, resulting in approximately 74.5 million units flying off the shelves during the same quarter of 2014. That success, coupled together with the potential integration of new features, has led Apple to believe that it can shift even more units of the next iPhone.

In addition to discussing the supply chain, the source also pretty much confirms the existence of a number of previously speculated feature additions. Although the next-generation hardware is expected to be visually identical to the iPhones that we already have and interact with on a daily basis, it does look certain to be manufactured with a display complete with Apple’s Force Touch technology that is already present in the Apple Watch and latest range of MacBooks. It’s almost certain that the iPhone 6s will also ship with a dramatically improved rear camera component to serve up photography improvements to enthusiasts.

One surprising addition to the iPhone 6s lineup could be the existence of a new color option to compliment the Space Gray, Gold and Silver options that already exist. It had initially been suffused that Apple would continue with the gold theme by introducing a Rose Gold option that differs slightly from the existing gold. However, certain corners are suggesting that the additional color option could be more of a pink solution than rose gold.
With production starting just last month, we should only have to wait until September to see exactly what Apple has in store for us.

iPhone 6s Camera Leak: 12MP Sensor With 4K Video Recording

Written by  
With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus being readily available for eight months, it’s time to move onto the next-generation iPhone and discuss what we could actually see when Apple eventually lifts the covers off the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. It has already been suggested that neither device will ship with the cutting-edge dual lens camera technology that had previously been speculated, but a new document that has been leaked online suggests that the next-generation iPhone double act will ship with significantly improved camera capabilities.
According to the aforementioned leaked document, which has since been removed from its original location, quotes an alleged Foxconn employee and suggests that Apple’s next-generation iPhone duo will come equipped with a 12-megapixel camera capable of recording video in 4K.

In addition to serving up awesome 4K video recording, it’s also being suggested via the same source that the device(s) will have the same iPhone 6-esque 240 frames-per-second slo-mo capabilities to compliment the experience already offered to those who love capturing stills and videos directly on the iPhone, but we really wish Apple takes that number up to 480fps for slo-mo recording.
As well as the camera improvements, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are also set to receive a much needed boost in RAM, jumping up to 2GB. The document lists the internal model number of the iPhone 6s as N66 and the 6s Plus as N71, and suggests that both will ship with front-facing 5-megapixel cameras for those super impressive selfies. It was previously discovered inside code of iOS 9 that the next Apple smartphone could even have a front-facing flash.

If you add this new speculation together with the existing conjecture that both devices will ship with Force Touch and utilize Category 6 4G LTE modems capable of theoretical speeds of up to 300Mbps, you start to get the impression of a much improved device under the hood that continues the design trend that was introduced with the current-generation models.
We’re sure the rumors pertaining to the iPhone 6s will start to come through thick and fast as we approach an unveiling so stay tuned.

First High-Quality iPhone 6s Photos Leaked Online

Written by  
It’s hardly a secret that we are expecting Apple to announce a new iPhone for launch later this year. The new Apple smartphone, which is pretty much nailed on to be given the 6s/6s Plus naming convention, is unlikely to differ a great deal from the external aesthetics that we already have with the current-generation iPhone 6. However, if a number of high-quality leaked photos are to be believed, then it looks like Apple has made significant changes to the internal structure of the upcoming iPhone model.
A number of differing sources and industry analysts have already all but confirmed that the next-generation iPhone will ship with Force Touch tech. The Apple Watch and the latest range of MacBooks already contain this technology, so it makes perfect sense for Apple to port it to the iPhone as well. In addition to this information, 9To5Mac is reporting that a “proven source”has provided a fairly decent in-depth look at what is purported to be the internal layout of the iPhone 6s.

The first notable thing about the photos is that the iPhone 6s will ship with a near identical rear design akin to the current iPhone 6 model. This isn’t a surprise considering the same aesthetic transition was in place when Apple made the move from the iPhone 5 to the 5s.
In addition to showing the similarities externally, the photos also show a number of small changes internally relating to how the device’s logic board will actually be mounted. What’s also interesting about the external photos is that the plastic antenna lines are still prominent and form part of the design. We recently discussed a patent filing by Apple for a new metal alloy that would allow radio signals to be transmitted, but it seems that this process won’t be complete in time for this particular product launch.
The design at the bottom of the new iPhone appears to be exactly the same as the current-generation iPhone 6 as well. We see the same number of speaker holes on the right hand side as well as the same intricate positioning of the Lighting connector aperture and the 3.5mm headphone jack that sites to the left of the sync cable opening.

Aside from the integration of Force Touch and a new, more powerful processor, it remains to be seen what Apple will actually unveil on the hardware side for the next iPhone. Thankfully, we’re now well and truly in that run up where leaks start to come thick and fast. Stay tuned.

IPHONE 6S RELEASE DATE LEACKED

Written by  

There isn’t much non-WWDC news around at the moment, and even when there is some, it’s still tangentially related. Take the news that the next iPhone is apparently going to ship on September 25th as prime example that Apple is never too far away from making the headlines.
While it’s almost common knowledge that a new iPhone will land around September or October time at this point, UK carrier Vodafone is apparently absolutely sure of not just the month of the next iPhone’s release, but also the date. September 25th, with pre-orders starting a week prior on September 18th.

In an email allegedly sent to news site MobileNews, a Vodafone employee has confirmed that the new iPhone will be available to buy from September 25th, though pre-orders will begin a week earlier as has become customary with Apple’s iPhone launches. The leak doesn’t say what the new iPhone will be called, but the smart money right now is on Apple launching both an iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in order to give both of its current flagship smartphones a speed bump. New processors, potentially increased memory and maybe even Force Touch are on the cards, though we won’t find out for sure until Apple unveils something come late August or early September.
It’s unclear at this point – and the Vodafone leak doesn’t help here – whether Apple will be announcing a replacement for the iPhone 5c later this year either. Now starting to show its age a little and certainly not selling quite as well as Apple perhaps hoped, the iPhone 5c could stand for a refresh if only to offer an option to those wishing to buy a smaller iPhone. Again, we don’t expect to know either way until towards the end of the year.

As for the supposed Vodafone leak, we really wouldn’t want to say whether it is accurate or not. The timescales certainly line up with what would be expected, but that also means that the leak is very easy to fake too. Time will tell, but if the information is indeed duff, we doubt it’s too wide of the mark anyway.
Back in May, we came across a rumor that suggested that the iPhone 6s release date is set for September, with August being the month which will see the handset(s) being announced.
