Another day, another leak about the iPhone 6. The majority of rumors point towards an iPhone 6 release this fall, possibly in September. However, a new report from Taiwan, citing unidentified supply chain sources, suggests Apple will launch the 4.7″ iPhone 6 in August. As for the 5.5″ iPhone, Apple will release the phablet sized one in its usual update cycle in September, going against all the rumors of delays of the larger iPhone due to production issues.

Apple is said to be working on two new versions of iPhone 6: 4.7″ and 5.5″ models. Both devices are expected to be thinner than their predecessor, and will come with an A8 processor and iOS 8 as its operating system.

It’s also rumored the iPhone 6 will come with an improved camera, which would makes sense now that Apple has hired Nokia’s camera expert, Ari Partinen, who will join the company next month too.

It will be good to see what Apple has planned for their fans. Releasing a larger iPhone will definitely attract more customers, and Apple could pull away some of the fans of Samsung and other competing OEMs. We’ll keep an eye on the rumor mill, and let you know if it leaks any interesting bits.
