Will the iPhone 6 be worth waiting for?

Should you hang on ‘til September before you upgrade your phone? If you’ve always wanted a supersized iPhone, word on the street is you should be able to get your hands on one in just a few months’ time – so hold fire on a new contract for now.   

The most persistent rumour doing the rounds is the iPhone 6 is going to be available in standard and 5.5 inch phablet size. There’s plenty more gossip out there – and here’s a roundup of some of the more credible stories.

What will the iPhone 6 look like?

You don’t have to go far to find pictures and videos claiming to show mockups of the iPhone 6. One of the latest was published on Japanese tech blog Macotakara (spotted by French blog nowhereelse.fr) showing what appear to be two iPhone 6 models - one regular (approx. 4.7-inches), one ultrasized – shown next to an iPhone  5s for comparison. Expect a thinner design similar to recent iPad models.

World-beating camera on 5.5-inch version

As reported in 9to5Mac and Appleinsider, the differences between the 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models extend beyond mere screen size. One of the biggest differences is likely to be in relation to the camera. The 5.5-inch model is expected to have a camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS) for super-sharp, blur-free images. The camera on the 4.7-inch version is still almost certainly going to be one of the best on the market, but expect something even more special on the larger version to give a real selling point.

128GB of storage?

According to Techradar, the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 is likely to make full use of all that extra bodywork by having the option of a huge 128GB of internal storage – the most available on any mainstream smartphone at present and putting it on a par with the iPad Air. Storage on the 4.7-inch version is likely to be capped at 64GB.

iOS 8 pre-installed

The new Apple operating system was unveiled earlier in the year - but isn’t available to the public yet – so expect it to be rolled out alongside the new phone. Promised highlights of the new OS include some rather ambitious predictive typing - context-sensitive to offer entire responses based on what’s happening in the conversation. New features also include home automation – a new hub on your phone to bundle together all the apps you need for controlling your lights, heating, doors and home entertainment. There’s also a promised Healthkit hub for various health monitoring and tracking apps. 

Smart sensors

Air pressure and altitude sensors and sensors for other weather conditions are on the cards according to 9to5Mac – ideal for outdoor pursuits fans. We may even see a solar charging capacity. A Touch ID fingerprint sensor is likely to do away completely with the need for a home button.    

As well as these features you can have also bet on lightning fast performance and even better display. The downside of course will be the inevitable hefty price tag. It’s the type of device that calls out for the best possible protection. Watch this space for some of the best iPhone 6 cases, covers and other accessories out there!
