Now that the Google I/O dust has settled down (just a little bit), we can turn our heads and attention to the main competition: Apple. We’re hearing reports talking about the iPhone 6 launch date, and Friday, September 19, 2014, is the date rumored. Apple is expected to unveil a 4.7 and a 5.5-inch iPhone 6, and apparently there will be no 16GB version; this year, Apple is rumored to only offer 32 and 64GB versions.
However, the same way we heard that only the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will get OIS features for its camera — the larger phone being positioned, according to reports, as the premium offering — we are now hearing that only this larger version will be offered in 128GB storage options. If the report is true, and, combined with the lack of 16GB models, it would mean that Apple would only offer two variants of the 4.7-inch model (unlike in the past), while adopting the storage policy it uses for the iPad. We’ll, of course, treat these reports accordingly, until the “real” iPhone 6 launch date.
