iPhone 6 Boats Rumoured to be Departing in Late August

By Gary Cutlack on at

New rumours regarding the iPhone 6 suggest the Chinese manufacturers are preparing to ship the phones at the end of August, a fact that slots in nicely with the numerous claims that we'll see new iPhones announced in early September and put on sale a couple of weeks later.

This hour's iPhone 6 rumour is brought to us by MacRumors, which says "a reliable source" who somehow has a line inside the Chinese supply chain believes the boat-load of new hardware will be leaving for the US "during the last two weeks of August," allowing Apple to hit its usual September mobile refresh date.
