According to a new report, citing its sources inside Apple’s major manufacturing partner: Foxconn, Apple will unveil in upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on September 11 with a launch date set week after the unveiling keynote.
MIC Gadget, a Chinese blog, claims that they have obtained this iPhone 6s and 6s Plus unveiling and launch date information from a source inside Foxconn, but they were unable to confirm is this year’s unveiling event of iPhone 6’s successor will be accompanied by a smaller screen device, mostly referred to as iPhone 6c.
The report also talks about the technical specification of Apple’s next-generation iPhone models. There’s nothing surprising in the report, and it claims what we have already heard over and over: Force touch display resulting in a thicker device than the current generation devices, 2GB of RAM, an all new A9 chip from Apple, and 12-megapixel main camera with capabilities of capturing 4K video.
While MIC Gadget has a somewhat accurate track record when it comes to Apple leaks, but it’s highly likely than sources inside supply chain partners would know information related to the unveiling and launch date. Why Apple would provide Foxconn with the launch dates of the device, let alone the date of its unveiling keynote. So take this report with a pinch of salt and don’t get too excited.
In addition, if we look back at the previous Apple keynotes, the iPhone unveiling have always happened on Tuesday, but September 11 falls on Friday, which mean Apple will have to put the device up for pre-orders on the same day of unveiling if it wants to give them a week to get their orders in.
So, the dates mentioned in the report seems unlikely to be accurate, however, September 18th launch, if it turns out to be true, would be a lucky guess from MIC Gadget.
