Amid speculations on the release date of iPhone 6 with several reports suggesting that it see the light of the day during Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, a new report has emerged that the launch of the next-generation smartphone would happen in September.
The Cupertino giant will release iPhone 6 in two sizes - 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch - in September, reported South China Morning Post citing industry insiders who have seen the prototypes.
Technology websites like Tech Radar and ET News also had reported earlier that the new smartphone is expected to be launched in September, while Chinese Analyst Sun Changxu, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek and South Korea's brokerage KDB Daewoo Securities said that Apple would release its much-awaited device at the WWDC event in June.
The Chinese newspaper said that App developers need to get ready to redesign, as the upcoming iPhone variants will be bigger, sporting a display at 441 pixels per inch (ppi), as seen in Samsung Galaxy S4.
"They have to tackle the phablet [devices that serve as both phone and tablet] market. People want bigger screens now," an insider told the paper.
