German wireless carrier company, Deutsche Telekom, has apparently come up with a good strategy to retain current subscribers. The carrier told its contact center representatives to drop hints that the new iPhone 6 will be available on September 19, according to German website Apfelpage.de.
It may likely be an informed guess on the carrier?s part, as Apple has historically not told partner carriers about a particular launch date this early in the process. However, the supposed launch date is consistent with the tech giant?s previous iPhone release dates.
Traditionally, at least in the past three years, Apple had launched its latest iPhone models on a Friday. Last year, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C had been released on September 20. Around the same week, ?Apple launched the then flagship model iPhone 5 on September 21, 2012. Before that, the iPhone 4S was launched a few weeks later on October 24, 2011. The rumored September 19, 2014 release of the iPhone 6 clearly is not a far-fetched speculation.
Taiwanese media earlier reported that the new iPhone 6 will come in two models. Sources working in the handset?s supply chain in the Asian country leaked?that one model will have a 4.7-inch display while the other will have an unusually larger 5.5 or 5.6-inch display. It is thought that Sharp Corp., Japan Display Inc., and LG Display Co. Ltd. have all been tasked to manufacture the screens. But all three companies, as well as Apple declined to confirm the speculation.
French website Nowhereelse.fr recently posted a video believed to be a dummy model of the iPhone 6. It was supposedly made to help smartphone case manufacturers ensure that their products fit the new design perfectly.
If the California-based tech company is to follow their recent trend of launch strategies, the company may also unveil its all-new iOS 6 at a keynote presentation during the Worldwide Developers Conference 2014 (WWDC) on June. This is aligned with its usual scheme of revealing a new OS before a new device model. Germany is usually one of the first markets that Apple releases their new products to, along with Australia, China, Canada, France, Singapore, Japan, the U.K., and the U.S.
