Six iPhone 6 Rumors Doing the Rounds
With the iPhone 6 supposedly coming this fall, the iRumors are flurrying their way through cyberspace. In celebration of the upcoming release, we’ve gathered six ‘iRumors’ to see what people say the newest iPhone will feature. While there are many out there, we focused on six of the most popular speculations of the upcoming Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) smartphone.
1. The iPhone 6 will have a larger screen
The iPhone may start getting into phablet territory if the rumored 5.7-inch screen rumor is true. This new size would be much larger than the iPhone 5, which has a 4-inch screen. This increase would make the new iPhone’s screen only 2.2 inches smaller than the current version of the iPad Mini.
2. The glass screen may be less fragile than previous iPhones
A cracked screen after a drop or other crash is the hazard of many a smartphone or tablet user, but rumors have it that the iPhone will be using a more expensive less-breakable alternative glass for its latest incarnation of the iPhone. 9to5Mac reports that Apple has procured a facility in Arizona to make sapphire-crystal glass displays for future Apple products, possibly including the iPhone 6.
3. The iPhone may get smarter with a faster processor chip
This iRumor seems the most likely, as every iPhone released has had an improved processor chip. It’s rumored that the new A8 chip will be the brain behind the iPhone 6. As Apple recently extended its agreement with Imagination Technologies, it’s possible.
