Apple’s next high-end iPhone might be called iPhone 6, not iPhone 5S
Apple’s iPhone launch history doesn’t include too many surprises. Looking at the 3G – 3GS and 4 – 4S models, now, after the iPhone 5 everyone expects to Cupertino company to introduce an iPhone 5S. However, the name of the new flagship smartphone from Apple could be iPhone 6.
British website Stuff.tv has unveiled a screenshot that allegedly comes from a UK mobile operator, listing a “4G iPhone 6.”
If iPhone 6 is the name of the handset indeed, it means it will probably not be just a minor update to the 5S. And yet I doubt we’re going to see an iPhone with a display larger than 4 inches this year – so the major changes (if any) must be in other departments.
From what we’ve previously heard, a quad-core processor, more RAM, and enhanced cameras will almost certainly be included in the next-generation iPhone. On the software side, the smartphone will come with iOS 7, which might bring a serious facelift to the platform – which, let’s face it, hasn’t changed much throughout the years.
Whatever its final name will be, the iPhone 6 / 5S could make its debut worldwide in September. It might be joined by a cheaper new iPhone – especially designed by Apple for emerging markets.
