Every year we hear rumors of the next-gen iPhone’s release date, and every year without fail we have heard how the handset could see a release in the middle of the year at Apple’s WWDC event. We have seen this happen with the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5, and the iPhone 5s, but given that we’ve already established a pattern with the previous 3 iPhone releases, we expect that mid-year predictions should stop, but apparently that is not the case. According to an investors note from Susquehanna Financial Group analyst Mehdi Hosseini, he believes that the iPhone 6 could see a launch in June or July 2014.
According to Hosseini, “Although there is no color yet on the iPhone 6 specs, our recent checks in Taiwan and Korea suggest Apple has already begun negotiating with its memory suppliers to secure capacities.” Like we said, based on previous iPhone releases for the past 3 years, it would be highly suspect that Apple would suddenly revert to its mid-year schedule again. While it is not completely out of the question, it does not make much sense for now. However we wouldn’t be surprised if Apple had already planned its next iPhone, although we doubt a mid-year release is in the cards. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but if you have been following the tech scene, this is one rumor you’re better off discounting.
