what we know so far part 1 - iphone 6s - rumors - release date - features

The iPhone 6S release date is just weeks away, and as a bunch of self-confessed Apple obsessives we couldn’t be more excited about the next generation smartphone. When its predecessor, the iPhone 6 first hit stores last September the world snapped up 10 million devices in just three days, and the latest version is set to fly off shelves even faster! So what galvanising new features can we expect to see in the iPhone 6S?

We’ve scoured the web and pooled together all of our insider intelligence to bring you a sneak peek at the rumours surrounding the release of the brand spanking new iPhone 6S. Hold onto your keyboards because there is some seriously exciting content ahead!

The iPhone 6S release date (When will the iPhone 6S be released?)

This is one of the biggest iPhone 6S rumours and the general consensus seems to be that the release date will follow the same pattern Apple has adhered to for the past few years. The regular schedule sees new models released every September and we’re almost 100% certain that the iPhone 6S will follow suit. Just look at the iPhone 5. In September 2012 Apple treated us to the initial model, followed by the iPhone 5S and 5C in September 2013. Given the fact that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were announced on September 9, the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10 and the iPhone 5 on September 12, we’re guessing that the second week of September is a good bet for the release date. September 8 or 9 to be specific!

Publicity and official announcement

We’ve heard that the new handset will officially be launched during a keynote speech delivered by Tim Cook, Apple chief executive. He’ll be joined by a fellow flock of high profile Apple deities, including Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing and Eddy Cue, senior vice president of internet software and services.

When will it hit stores?

While the official announcement date is pegged for early September, the iPhone 6S won’t be on-sale to the public until later in the month. At least that’s what a leaked internal email from Vodafone suggests. The document identifies September 25 as the official public sale release date, with pre-orders starting on the 18th. Already, retailers are starting to develop iPhone 6S cases that will complement the brand new generation of device.

How many have been produced?

The Wall Street Journal has reported that Apple has requested a record breaking number of new models. While last year’s release saw around 80 million on order, this year manufacturers have produced an eye-watering 90 million! This indicates Apple has enormous confidence in its latest model becoming an instant best-seller.
