With each passing day we’re closing in to the middle of the third quarter, which in theory should also mean that we’re getting closer and closer to iPhone 6′s release date. However, that may not entirely be the case, as fresh reports continue to suggest that Apple may be forced to push back the release of some of its products.
Such is the case with one of today’s reports regarding Cupertino-based giant’s plans, suggesting that not only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be released later than initially anticipated, but the iWatch as well. Join us below for the full story.
5.5-inch iPhone 6 and iWatch to be Launched in December?
Inside sources from Apple’s supply chain have recently “reconfirmed” that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 already entered mass production, with the 5.5-inch model to follow in its sibling’s footsteps in September. This isn’t the first time we’re taking into consideration the possibility that Apple’s phablet could enter mass production in September, alongside the next-gen iPad Mini and iPad Air, but this fresh report also adds that the “iPhablet” will hit the shelves as late as December 2014.
In addition, the source suggests that the highly-anticipated iWatch will be released alongside the larger iPhone 6, so as of yet, it seems that the 4.7-inch model could be all by itself when the time comes to hit the stage. Not long ago, a report claimed that the iWatch will enter mass production in November but no release date has been mentioned.
Given the fact that the smartwatch in question should work, for the most part, like any other similar companion gadget (meaning that the large majority of its features will be available once the device is paired up with a smartphone), it’s somewhat to be expected for Apple to not introduce the iWatch to the world during an exclusive event. With that in mind, if the iWatch won’t be ready by the time the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 hits the stage (and it most likely won’t), chances are that the wrist gadget will indeed make its debut next to the 5.5-inch model, regardless of when the smartphone will go live.
