iPhone 6 to have two release dates

Get ready because here comes a new juicy rumor regarding the release of the iPhone 6 from Apple.

With Apple expected to release two versions of its latest flagship smartphone — a larger 5.5-inch device and a smaller 4.7-inch one — anonymous sources are claiming that the company will be releasing each version of the phone on separate dates.

The website DigiTimes is reporting that Apple will release the 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6 first with the 5.5-inch version rolling out soon thereafter. The reason given is that Apple apparently doesn’t want to repeat what it did in 2013 with the launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C when the California-based company released both devices at the same time.

This rumor is unconfirmed, and comes from a source in DigiTimes that has a mixed track record when it comes to accuracy. That being said, remember to take everything you hear with a grain of salt until Apple officially announces its plans.

The iPhone 6, which is the expected name of the successor to the 5S, hasn’t even been announced has being in the works, though it’s common knowledge that it is. It’s believed that the delay in the announcement is due to various mechanical errors on the larger version of the device.

FanSided reached out to Apple for comment, but, as per company policy, the request was denied.
