Apple iPhone 6 is rumored to release this upcoming September…well more specifically somewhere in the span of the next two weeks. Yes, it’s that time of the year again, where every iPhone user sits on their computers searching for some kind of…or any kind of information that can give them a clue as to what to expect for the latest updates Apple has to offer us.

So this is what we expect:

After months of speculations and rumors that have been surfacing the internet, we can expect that Apple will be releasing the iPhone 6 after it’s September 9th iPhone event.

Majority of the rumors focus on it’s screen size and sapphire crystal display.

It’s said that Apple has been experimenting with a number of sizes for it’s latest and greatest. We are expecting an increase in screen size, since the screens have grown from 3.5-4 (with the iPhone  5). Most are expecting a screen size of 4.7-5.5 inches.

IPhone is said to feature a sapphire crystal display (explained in the video above) but after a few scratch tests we are not sure if this is yet true or false. This feature is already present in smaller parts of the iPhone like the camera lens and home button. But lets hope that Apple really did create a partnership with GT Advanced to do it bigger and better. Sapphire crystal after all is said to be the best for durability.

However, there are also a few photos that were  leaked, suggesting a new look for the iPhone:

The iPhone 6 is said to have round edges, and larger pill shaped buttons. The volume buttons will be shrinking to prevent accidental volume changes. It’s also said to mock the iPad Mini and Air or iPod touch, more then before. The speaker might also get redesigned and the power button may be put over to the side, for easier access. It doesn’t stop there though, even the Apple logo gets an upgrade, and might be embedded into the phone.

One of the first internal parts that were leaked was the backlight panel. This seems similar to the same panel in the iPhone 5s and it is rumored that Apple with utilize this technology to shrink the thickness of the iPhone 6.

As mentioned before, the iPhone is said to take its looks from the iPad Air and Mini, as well as the iPod Touch. The shell is also said to be a thinly cut metal the front and back are to connect seamlessly.

There has also been a bit of a situation with the release of the two (yes not one but two) iPhones we are expecting to be launched. Because of production issues, the 5.5 and 4.7 could either be released side by side or one would have to be delayed.  What makes us think there will be two releases? Well, there is a photo leaked of two different batteries and logic boards. There’s even photos of two entirely different home button and sensor flex cables (used to connect parts of the logic board).

Finally we have the camera, the one thing we all love to use.  The biggest thing that is rumored to be in the works(which we should all be very excited about) is OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). Apple is said to be partnering up with InvenSense (who manufactures an OIS gyroscope). Say goodbye to shaky pictures!

Oh yea, before we let you off on that note, let’s not forget the iOS 8. As with recent phone releases, Apple has released an new operating system as well. This should be no exception. iOS 8 should show clear improvements form iOS 7, including but not stopping at: a new “Quicktype” keyboard, iCloud Drive access, and “Health” a new fitness app.

This is a lot to do in so little time. Let’s hope Apple doesn’t disappoint.
