Is the iPhone 6 coming in AUGUST?!


Could we be seeing the iPhone 6 much earlier than planned? That’s what an “unidentified supply chain source” in Taiwan reckons.


(Yes, this is just a mock up, and not real!)

The reports come via Reuters, who report that the Taiwanese Economic Daily News claimed that the 4.7″ version of the iPhone 6 will hit the shops in August – a month earlier than we all expected. This will then be followed in September by the rumoured ‘phablet’ 5.5″ version.

The same report apparently also claimed that 80 million iPhone 6 units will be produced this year. Crikey.

Obviously this should be treated with caution: we don’t know who the “source” was after all – but it does match with the speculation about an early announcement at next month’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.

We’ll have more as we get it.
