The next iPhone model would be iPhone 5S or iPhone 6? This is one question, which is always bobbling in minds of tech geeks. The iPhone 5 was launched in September, 2012 with a whole new design, specs and features. Since the release of iPhone 5, smartphone experts have been speculating iPhone 6 Release Date. There’s no official verdict on the release date, however there are many iPhone 6 rumors about the expected release date.
iPhone previous models have always been released in fall of their respective years. So, many smartphones experts are of the view that iPhone 6 will be released in fall of 2013. There is also probability that it will be released in somewhere in middle of June. But to have less competition and more sales, it’s better from profits point of view for Apple to release it in fall dates. The greatest competitors of iPhone 6 will be Samsung Galaxy S4 and the rumored HTC One (formerly HTC M7). Both of these android phones are expected to be released in spring 2013. So, there’s nothing concrete about the release date of iPhone 6 but it would be either in June or fall of 2013.

If Apple plans to launch iPhone 6 instead of iPhone 5S, then surely there will be changes in display and physical appearance of the phone. The display and screen size of iPhone 6 is expected to be bigger than iPhone 5, which will be 4.8 inch full HD Retina Display +IGZO screen.
iPhone 6 Processor
iPhone 6 camera
iPhone 6 rumors state that Apple will be adding new camera features with more megapixels for the rare and front face camera of iPhone 6. The rear camera of iPhone 5 is already much appreciated by smartphone users. However, it is highly expected that new iPhone 6 will come equipped with 12 or 13 megapixel primary camera. The front facing camera will be 2 Megapixel, an upgrade to the 1.2 Megapixel camera of iPhone 5. A 2 Megapixel front facing camera will allow users to get better video calls experience.
iPhone 6 iOS 7
Apple has always released new and better versions of iOS for new and existing users of Apple devices. iPhone 6 is expected to come with iOS 7, which is rumored to be underdevelopment. iOS 7 will come bundled with new iPhone 6 features and applications, which will drag buyers to buy iPhone 6 or upgrade their existing iPhones with the latest firmware.
iPhone 6 Storage and Battery
iPhone 6 is rumored to launch with larger inbuilt memory of 128Gb. Till now, no iPhone has come equipped with such significant inbuilt storage. The only drawback of iPhones is that users cannot upgrade their iPhone memory by inserting micro SD card, as they don’t have memory card slots.
The battery is likely to be 1700 mAh, which is 260 mAh higher than current iPhone 5. Improvement in memory will allow users to get better standby and call time. Many users also complain that battery runs out fast while they are playing games and watch HD videos on their iPhones. A 1700 mAh battery will hopefully sort out this issue as well.
If Apple brings in most of the anticipated iPhone 6 specs and features, then it will become one of the bestselling smartphones of 2013.
