A new report claims that while Apple is going to unveil both new iPhones together at the event next month, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 release may not take place for at least another month.
A big source reported recently that Apple is going to conduct the iPhone 6 launch event on September 9th. There has been no official confirmation from the company as yet but this date fits in the expected time frame. Apple traditionally launches new iPhones in the month of September and we see no reason why it would be any different this time around.
Just like last year, when the company unveiled iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c together, both new iPhones are expected to be launched at the event. Usually new iPhones don’t take more than a week to hit the market following the launch and the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is expected to follow this schedule. According to a new report that won’t be the case for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 though.
An unnamed source tells VentureBeat that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will not start shipping until at least several weeks after the announcement, adding that it may very well take up to a month before Apple ships out the larger device. The report doesn’t say why the company will do this but there has been chatter about production issues associated with the 5.5-inch model.
Whatever the case may be we’ll only know for sure when Apple makes the announcements. So far the company has kept mum on its iPhone plans and we don’t expect it to say anything before the time is just right.
