iPhone 6 Release Date.When will the iPhone 6 come out?
The 2013 iPhone launch and release date has already been and gone and there was no sign of the iPhone 6. So we're back to the start, and as such, are starting a fresh with the iPhone 6 release date, specs and new feature rumours. See also: iPhone 5C vs iPhone 5 comparison review.
For the last iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c rumour round-up (see page 2) we correctly reported on - and predicted - the addition of the colourful iPhone 5c, the fact that the iPhone 5s would come with a fingerprint scanner, dual flash (true tone), improved battery, we even brought you leaked images of the iPhone 5c new cases long before Apple wanted you to see them. What we're trying to say here – other than blatantly boasting – is that our release date and rumour round-up articles tend to get a lot of things right. Take a look at: The best phone you can buy in 2013?
iPhone 6 release date 2014
History repeats itself people, so guess what? That's exactly where we are going to look for a first clue as the when we might see the iPhone 6.
Previous iPhone release dates:
iPhone 1st gen
While the history books suggest that there will be an new iPhone 6 release date around September/October 2014, we have a gut feeling that Apple might – just might – shake things up a little bit and launch an iPhone 6 earlier than expected, just like it did with the iPad 4, which was launched just eight months after the iPad 3 (previous iPads were release 11-12 months apart). But for the record, the smart money goes on an iPhone 6 release date of September/October 2014.
5 features Apple could/should add to the iPhone 6
Rumours for the iPhone 6's specs are pretty thin on the ground right now - in fact, we can't find any of note yet - so instead we thought we'd bring you five areas where Apple has deliberately distanced its iPhones from the rest of the high-end smartphone market.
iPhone 6: NFC
The mobile world is crying out for the iPhone to join the NFC movement and give contactless payment on smartphones the boost that both NFC and iPhone need.
iPhone 6: Bigger screen
Is it time for an Apple iPhablet? A 5/6-inch and above screen could be just what Apple has up it's sleeve for the next iPhone. Apple already has two different sized smartphones and tablets and has dodged the fragmentation bullet masterfully so far. An iPhablet with bespoke Apple apps would be a force to reckon with in the business world.
iPhone 6:Expandable storage
This is a contentious issue, because Apple have both a very successful pricing structure based on storage options and also an ever developing iCloud. But expandable storage is still the most popular way and unrestricting way that the majority of people would chose to expand the storage capabilities of their smartphones. An iSD card and slot would be a great way for Apple to tackle this current flaw of the iPhone. It almost definitely won't happen though.
iPhone 6:Wireless Charging
This is almost too Apple, it's almost shocking it hasn't been included yet. Apple's big rival, Samsung, already has the feature and other smartphones are sure to catch up soon also.
iPhone 6:Flexible screen
A flexible screen, that's crazy talk! Apparently not. Those chaps over at Samsung are already making noises suggesting that there will be a smartphone with a flexible smartphone coming out in 2014. If it's a hit, then it won't be long till Apple joins the party. God knows enough people have smashed their existing iPhone screens.
As modern netizens, getting online is probably a vital part of your day. Olive's Nexus VR-9 is a portable Wi-Fi router that makes it possible to share a single connection with all your Wi-Fi enabled gadgets. All you need is a high-speed USB data card.
The idea is simple: plug in a data card into the router's USB port and it instantly creates a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever you are. At home or in office, multiple laptops can share the same data connection. You could provide wireless internet for Wi-Fi phones, iPods and tablets. On the move, your laptop and portable gadget continue to have internet access as long as your battery lasts.
It comes with a wall charger to keep plugged in at home/office. On the move, the battery is good enough to power it for a respectable 3 hours and 50 minutes (at least two devices were connected throughout this time in our testing). Aside from the portability, the biggest advantage is the savings it can offer.
Priced at 3,500, the Olive Nexus VR-9 could e…
Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.
There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.
The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
