It seems launch of Apple's upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus is imminent with its release date being leaked by reliable sources despite the Cupertino giant maintaining utmost secrecy like in the past.
Insiders from Foxconn, which is one of the major companies that makes Apple's iPhones, have confirmed that the keynote presentation of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be held on 11 September before the release on 18 September, reported M.I.C. Gadget (via Phone Arena).
Apple has the tradition of releasing its iPhone devices in the third quarter of the year, so it won't come as a surprise if it is launched on 18 September.
However, many may find the idea of unveiling it on 11 September odd because of the 9/11 terror attack that happened in America in 2001.
The Cupertino giant is tight-lipped on the release of its iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus but several reports have claimed that it is coming this year. Apple Insider had earlier reported that Apple might release the iPhone 6s, and perhaps the iPhone 6s Plus with Apple SIM (universal SIM card) pre-installed in September.
Interestingly, hype around the purported iPhone 7 has died down considerably over the last few weeks. It was earlier reported that Apple might release it this year but there is a big reason why it may see the light of the day only in 2016.
It is almost sure that Apple will release its iPhone 6s and 6s Plus this year, which means the iPhone 7 will come only next year. The company is unlikely to release three devices, or even four (iPhone 7 Plus) at a time, and it makes business sense if the iPhone 7 is pushed to 2016.
However, nothing is certain with Apple keeping mum on its upcoming device.
According to a report by M.I.C. Gadget, the iPhone 6s will be 7 mm thick as against 6.9 mm seen in the iPhone 6, and the thickness of the iPhone 6s Plus will be 7.13 mm against iPhone 6 Plus' 7.1 mm.
It also claimed that both the models would be powered by Apple A9 processor, come packed with a 2 GB RAM, and house a 12 MP main camera with 4K-video recording.
Business Insider had earlier reported citing a research data from Citi Research that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus might sport a 4.7 and 5.5-inch display, powered by an A9 processor, come packed with 2GB RAM and have features such as Force Touch, 12MP camera and stronger aluminium alloy chassis.
