We’re just a couple of weeks away from the rumored event where Apple might launch its next-generation iPhone 6. We’ve seen leaks of its design, and we’ve also seen leaks of some of its technical specifications. Today we get another round at the enhancements we should expect.

Rumors point to the iPhone 6 sporting some interesting new hardware. We had heard of the device bringing WiFi 802.11ac to the table, along with NFC, and even new enhancements to Touch ID. Today’s rumors agree to these previous claims, but we get some additional details on some extra enhancements. One of these changes is that the A8 chip that’s rumored to power this device will be clocked at 2.0 GHz, a first for iPhones, as Apple is never really clear on how it clocks its processors. The source also claims that the device will include a special Beats by Dre chip that will allow the iPhone 6 to determine if there are Beats headphones connected, and enhance audio appropriately for them. We do remember rumors of HD audio through the lightning cable in some previous rumors, so this could be part of the plan.

Apple’s iPhone 6 event is expected to happen on September 9. It’s still hard to predict how many of these rumors will be true, but the level of anticipation for this bigger iPhone is unprecedented.
