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.

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.
