HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Just last week, Apple announced a bunch of new products. One device that didn’t get any upgraded love was the iPhone.
Although few industry insiders expected to see a next generation smartphone appear at the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, it was still kind a disappointment to Apple fanatics.
Rumors about the next iPhone – unofficially dubbed the iPhone 6 – are already flying on the web. So what will it look like? When will it get here? CBS News partner CNET.com has been tracking the rumors closely for months and here’s what we “think” we know right now…
Most reports suggest Apple’s new smartphone will come in August or September of 2014. This has been Apple’s pattern since 2011.
Analysts claim Apple will likely give us two phones this fall – just like it did in September of 2013 with the 5S and 5C.
In May, iPhone 6 images – reportedly from maker Foxconn – revealed a larger body for the next iPhone. The alleged images show more rounded corners and a change in power button location.
One analyst’s leaked research note suggests future iPhones (or iPads) will likely get TouchID – Apple’s fingerprint identity sensor technology.
