There hasn’t been a quiet time when it comes to NFC and the iPhone 6. The feature has been rumored for Apple’s upcoming flagship smartphone on a pretty much constant basis over the last few months. John Gruber, another constant presence in the Apple ecosystem, has dropped another “joke” regarding NFC and the iPhone 6.
The iPhone 6 is going to be announced on September 9, thanks to Apple confirming the media event on August 28. At the event Apple is expected to unveil two new iPhones, the 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhone 6. They may also introduce higher price tags, if a new report is to be believed.
Let’s count how many times the iPhone 6 has been rumored to feature NFC capabilities in recent months: one, two, three, four, five, six and seven times. But with so many iPhone with NFC rumors failing to materialize in recent years, there is still skepticism as to whether these reports are true. According to sources for Wired, they just might be.
August has been a whirlwind of a month in terms of leaked components for the highly-anticipated iPhone 6. With less than two weeks until the smartphone is rumored to be unveiled, a new set of photos have leaked that provide one more look at some of the purported internal and external components for the iPhone 6.
While it is widely expected that Apple will unveil the oft-rumored iPhone 6 at a September 9th media event, in years past there has always been a certain number of days between the announcement and release date of the smartphone. This year around, a report claims that the iPhone 6 will go on sale during the third week of September.
GT Advanced allegedly producing between 1.3 and 2.2 million sapphire glass displays for 5.5-inch iPhone 6
The sapphire glass “conspiracy” won’t go away, apparently. Despite plenty of reports on both sides of the fence, it’s still unknown whether or not the next iPhone, or iPhones, are going to get the more durable display this time around. A new report suggests, yet again, that maybe only the larger variant of the two new iPhone 6 models will get the extra support.
