Apple’s iPhone 6 is supposedly launching sooner than expected

May 9th, 2014 at 9:10 AM
4.7-inch iPhone 6 Release Date

Apple may launch the iPhone 6 earlier than anticipated, Economic Daily News (via Reuters) reports, with the 4.7-inch version reaching stores in August rather than September, followed a month later by the bigger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model.

Recent reports indicated that the 4.7-inch iPhone would arrive late in the third quarter this year, while the phablet version would only be available to customers in late fourth quarter due to various delays related to potential battery supply issues and Sapphire display production.

Reuters says that “people involved in the supply chain” had earlier confirmed the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models.

The Economic Daily News reported that Apple will sell no fewer than 80 million iPhone 6 units this year, including both the 4.7-inch and the 5.5-inch model. In order for Apple to sell that many iPhone 6 units this year, the company has to bring at least one of them to stores earlier than expected, as it’ll likely need more than one quarter to move so many units.

So far, Apple’s best quarter is last year’s Christmas quarter (or Apple’s first quarter in fiscal year 2014), when the company sold 51 million iPhones, a mix of iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 4s models.

Recent reports claimed that Foxconn and Pegatron have already received iPhone 6 orders, although neither company would confirm them.

A large number of image leaks claiming to show the final design of the iPhone 6 have been featured in recent reports.
