MacRumors Roundup: What We Expect for iPhone 6




The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c have only been out for a few months, but attention is already turning to Apple's plans for the next generation of iPhone, likely to appear in late 2014. Rumors have indicated that a larger, perhaps curved, display may be one of the key features of the next iPhone, which is generally being referred to as the "iPhone 6" by the rumor community.

Rumors about the iPhone 6 and a potential successor to the iPhone 5c will undoubtedly escalate in the coming months, so MacRumors has put together a new iPhone 6 roundup to help readers stay on top of the latest reports.


As with our other roundups, the goal of our iPhone 6 roundup is to simply answer the question of "What are you expecting" for Apple's next iPhone at any given time. That opinion is certain to change over time as new rumors are revealed, and our roundup will be updated regularly to reflect the latest rumors.

All of our roundups continue to be accessible through a dedicated index page showing a full list of our available roundups ordered by most recently updated, as well as directly through the "Roundups" tab in the navigation bar on all MacRumors pages.

Wow, that is to big ... I have to see it when it comes out. I like the size of iPhone 5s.

I feel like the only person that wants an option to purchase the iphone at its original dimensions, back when I could use it with ease with one hand.

I doubt they would use it in the iPhone 6. It is 100% going into the iWatch.

Expect credible leaks in late Q1.

I really don't know what to expect from Apple at this stage.

Larger screen seems like the only piece of speculation that will probably be true.

The only rumor I have ever been 100% sure of:

IF Apple introduces a larger iPhone (and I hope they do) it will be in addition to a falgship model of their "normal sized phone"

Pay more and get a bigger screen, but they are pretty much identical. Just like with the new iPads.

I would like to see electromagnetic induction charging, completely sealed unit, with waterproof microphone/speakers. Removal of all legacy "wired" connexions, as these simply should not be needed with the latest wifi/bluetooth standards.

I've found the 4.7" screen on my Nexus4 to be a very nice size.

I have big hands and can barely use the iPhone 5 with one hand, I really hope it doesn't get bigger. Or at least there's a different sized option. Curved display would be nice though, and a new processor as always will be cool.

Interesting, the A8 is the only part that I think of as likely.

Hope a larger screen is not the only thing! I want something mind blowing that will destroy competition much like the original iPhone did (in my opinion)

Slightly bigger screen size would be great. But only slightly, I don't want a monstrosity in my hands or pockets.

No way. The "tomorrow will be like today" prediction is the right one most of the time; too bad it's boring and doesn't draw page views.

Anyway, my prediction: Same 5" screen, but brighter or something. More battery life. Thinner. Industrial design will be an evolution of the current look and feel. Better camera, 3 LED flash. 16GB, 32GB, 64GB options.

Unlike the the article, I don't think next year's mid-tier likely to be called 6c. (Apple release 5c alongside 5s, not 5. So, it seems more like to be called 5sc or something similar.) Also, the mockup showed a home button instead of TouchID. (Don't think that likely to be removed from the next gen.)

Mac Rumors presents a piece on iPhone 6. What do they expect?

That it will have a faster and more effecient A8 chip. That's right, they believe that the new iPhone will be faster.

You heard it here, first, folks!

A post of this manner seems a little silly this early. But I am looking forward to a bigger screen, I do have Android envy when I see people with nice big screens. But Android itself is insufferable. Give me a 5"-6" iPhone and I'll be happy happy!
