iPhone 6 Rumoured for Shock August Reveal and Launch

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple may be about to discard years of history with its iPhone 6 launch plan, with supply sources claiming the anticipated smaller 4.7-inch version of the next iPhone could appear in August -- a month earlier than the usual September model refresh.

The report comes via theĀ Economic Daily News, which claims some regions will see the iPhone 6 arrive a month sooner than expected to throw upgrade plans into chaos, with the rumoured 5.5-inch larger model coming later in the usual September launch slot. [Reuters]
