Iphone6Apple Shindig To Be Tasty

Apple has organised shindig for next Tuesday at their Santa Clara Valley headquarters.

Word on the street is that it will see the launch of iPhone 6.

There are also wagers being laid that the much heralded iWatch might finally be launched as well.

Industry insiders believe that it will be a big week for Apple.

It could either be an opportunity to get back in the driving seat, to win back the ground lost to Android devices, or a chance missed that accelerates that decline fortune.

So, what can the enthusiast expect from the iPhone 6? The Net has been awash with conflicting rumours, many claimed to have been leaked by component suppliers.

It is almost certain that the new model will have a bigger screen and higher resolution that the iPhone 5. A 4.7 inch display seems to be generally agreed, but pixel count rumours vary widely, so those keen to consider the upgrade will need to wait for definitive news from the launch.

The hot rumours suggest the big moves may come with weight, thickness and durability. If, as speculated, the shell is a combination of virtually scratch-free Sapphire Glass and light but strong, so called Liquid Metal, it could be an ultra-thin and nimble but highly robust model indeed.

Advanced engineering comes at a price.

The cost of an iPhone 6 is anticipated to be about £550.

For that sort of money, it will need a noticeable edge over the intense competition it is going to face.

If you want one, there is conjecture that it will hit the shops on September 19.
