iPhone 6 will be a really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes ~ Longer ~ Wider ~ 4.7″ and 5.7″ Display ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed (4th Update) πŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽπŸŽ

March 12, 2014

🍎 Details on Apple’s plans for the 2014 iPhone lineup were published on Tuesday by Japanese blog Macotakara. Citing a trusted source, author Danbo said that “Apple has designed two larger iPhone models, sporting 4.7″ and 5.7″ displays, which are final candidates for launch in 2014.”

🍎 IMHO, this is exactly what the iPhone Market needs, two serious screen sizes to choose between. The choice of either the 4.7″ display or the 5.7″ display will be perfect Selections to choose from, and will certainly silence the Apple critics for not having a choice of displays. Assuming Apple retains the current Model iPhone 5S, with the New Models, The iphone 6 with its 4.7″ display and the iPhone Air with its 5.7″ display.

Apple offering 4 iPhones, covers all Reasonable Display Sizes

🍎 iPhone 4S… 3.5″… Display, Subsidized Price:… 99Β’
🍎 iPhone 5S… 4.0″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $99
🍎 iPhone 6….. 4.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $199
🍎 iPhone Air… 5.7″… Display, Subsidized Price:… $299

🍎 Lets assume for the moment that Macotakara Publication is accurate regarding the two new display sizes. Lets further assume that Jimmy’s subsidized price “quesstimates” will range from 99Β’ for the 3.5″ iPhone 4S to $299 for the 5.7″ iPhone Air, as shown above.

🍎 The BIG Question is: Will iPhone Up-Graders pay-up $299 for the base model of the iPhone Air; Plus paying an added $100 for each step for 32GB, 64GB, 128GB Memory upgrades.

🍎 What’s Jimmy Think: From my perspective, and knowing how valuable the iPhone is as a communications device, and the added utility of the iPhone, as a business tool, I will be “pleased” to pay $500, subsidized, for the 5.7″ iPhone Air with 64GB of storage. (The iPhone Air name is also a guess).

🍎 Lets look at “JimW’s iPhone 5S” Usage, I have only 22.9 GB remaining of the 64GB iPhone. It could be assumed with the iPhone Air’s larger screen, it may double as “miniature iPad mini” needing to step-up the onboard storage to 128GB. Unfortunately one cannot upgrade later, so its a one-time decision of paying up that extra $100 for Twice the storage, going from 64GB to 128GB, assuming this choice is available.

🍎 iPhone 6 will be a really Big Launch in 2014 with Two Display Sizes, they will be Longer and Wider, Diagonal Measure: 4.7″ and 5.7″ Display Sizes ~ 5G WiFi Connectivity ~ True 802.11ac Gigabit Speed.

🍎 iPhone Release Schedules. Historically, Apple released its original iPhone in June, 2007 with over a million units sold in its opening weekend. The next iPhone iteration, the iPhone 3G was released in July, 2008. (Notice that we’re focusing your attention to the “Major” releases, not the interim “S” releases).

🍎 The next major iPhone release was June, 2010, with its iPhone 4, the date and model Marilyn and I bought our first iPhones. Subsequently, the iPhone 5 was released in September, 2012 with 6 million units sold in its opening weekend. This September release month was somewhat “off schedule” from the other June timings. This 90 delay delay, may have occurred due to some quality-control and/or supply-line issues, pushing back the release a few months; Total guesswork on my part.

🍎 iPhone 6 is upon us reportedly, and interested folks are wondering when will the iPhone 6 be Announced and Released. My guess, Apple may return to the June, 2014 timing schedule, so that Apple has more time for the Sales of this likely “Block Buster” release with its reported larger 4.7″ brilliant display.

🍎 Its said that Apple may have a 12 million iPhone weekend, with the iPhone 6 new release. Also reported, Apple placed its initial order for the iPhone 6, ordering 90 million units from an experienced Apple supplier, Foxconn. That’s Confidence.

🍎 The secondary questions, will Apple release Two Phones, the iPhone 6, and the iPhone Air on the same Day, similar to the release of iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C in September, 2013.

🍎 These new models are reportedly expected to have similar button shapes for volume and mute as the iPhone 5c, as well as the same rounded back edges. In addition, it was said that the holes on the bottom of the handset for speaker and microphone will also follow the design established by the iPhone 5c.

🍎 The larger 5.7″ model is said to be 7.5 millimeters thick, which would be the same as the iPad Air. This thinness would reportedly may require the rear iSight camera to protrude slightly from the case, much like with the fifth-generation iPod nano. Last year the Apple had to revise its “thinness” from 7.0mm to 7.5mm to avoid the slight protrusion.

🍎 Macotakara, the source for the story above, has a respectable track record in predicting Apple’s future iPhone plans. Last year, the site’s sources revealed the 2013 iPhone lineup would come in a new range of colors, and it was also the first to claim that the iPhone 5s would feature a dual LED flash for more natural looking photos. The site also was first to state that the new pill-shaped flash module would be accompanied by a circular rear-facing microphone located between the flash and the iSight camera lens.

🍎 The anticipated larger iPhone is rumored to be a high-end iPhone 5c, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will continue to have a plastic back, as the iPod nano achieves its colors with anodized aluminum. The new models are apparently a cross between the design of the iPhone 5c and the seventh-generation iPod nano. According to the source, the new larger iPhone won’t be a replacement for the existing iPhone 5c, but will be akin to a higher-end model.

🍎 iPhone 6 is going be a really Big launch this year. Apple will finally offer, its reported, a bigger display to compete with the likes of the Galaxy S5 and other flagship Android phones and phablets.

🍎 It’s not that Apple’s iPhone underperforms in any measure, its strictly that 69% of Existing iPhone Users desire a Larger Display, self included. In anticipation of this huge anticipated demand, Apple has reportedly ordered 90 million iPhone 6 units from Foxconn.

🍎 News is picking up momentum and spreading like a viral disease, as a new report indicates that the iPhone 5C’s sales failure could move-up the Release Date of the iPhone 6, to a date earlier in 2014, than initially anticipated. Of course, only Apple knows, everyone else is guessing, and extrapolating.

🍎 One thing for sure, Apple will release the iPhone 6, when its ready for a huge release. Since Apple’s release of the 5S and 5C simultaneously with a 9 Million release-weekend, Apple will surely be capable of having 15 Million of the iPhone 6 models available for its opening Weekend.

🍎 According to the Australian rendition of the International Business Times, there’s a brand new report that has come fast and furious out of DigiTimes, indicating that there are more than a million iPhone 5C handsets sitting on retail and ISP’s shelves the around the world world, where Apple is having trouble designing a plan to move these units economically for the delivery source and Apple’s balance sheet.

🍎 As noted by IBT… β€œSome consumers believed iPhone 5C failed to prove that it is a cheap iOS device. But the tables could turn when carriers and retailers drop the existing prices to clear the remaining inventory once the iPhone 6 will be released.”

🍎 The 5C issue could spell big trouble for Apple if the iPhone 5C proves to be a hamper in their profit-stride and the “Wall Street Expectations game.” However, Apple could make up for the 5C matter, with very strong quarterly sales by the release of an Exciting iPhone 6, particularly if Apple gets to or Close to a 5″ Display combined with the very successful and popular golden iPhone 5S.

🍎 iPhone is due to be released later this year. The iPhone 6 seemingly will be packed with amazing features that will make it fly-off the shelves.

🍎 Several innovative features are likely to set-up the iPhone 6 as the new Leader in the smartphones market, significantly outperforming (Galaxy’s S5 a similar dud as was Apple’s 5C) along any other releases from its competitors coming out the next few months.

🍎 Since even Samsung being disappointed with the apparent “flop” of the Galaxy S5, this leaves the “Door Wide Open” for Apple to capture a relatively large number of folks ready to migrate from Android.

🍎 Rumors have it that Apple is going for a wider and bigger display for the new iPhone 6. But that’s not the only thing that’s changing. Apple now has a new patent called β€˜Systems and Methods for Preventing Light Guide Plate Scratching Artifactsβ€˜ which leads us to believe that the iPhone 6 display technology will be truly innovative.

🍎 Apple has stated that iPhone 6 will probably have “the most gorgeous display rendering ever in a mobile device.” Not only will it look modern and chic but the screen may come with a neat protection layer.

🍎 It looks like the Retina display panel will be replaced with Quantum Dot technology which will come with sharper, crisper colors and improved brightness renditions.

🍎 Knowing how important battery life is, apparently, iPhone 6 will come equipped with a battery that not only will it last longer and give users longer talk-time, but will also feature a source of energy that will replenish its electrical power very quickly.

🍎 There have also been rumors about wireless charging, no need to elaborate on what a great feature would that be and how iPhone 6 would become the public’s favorite.

🍎 Wi-Fi signal improvements with the famous 802.11ac (a/k/a 5G WiFi) offering break-neck speed, and longer connectivity range, is rumored to be featured on the new iPhone 6. If this is true, users will be able to download or stream HD films in a matter of seconds even for very large HDTV video movie files. Gigabit speed equates to roughly 250,000,000 bYtes per second.

🍎 In perspective, a typical 8 mega-pixel camera captures that have a file size of 5 Mega bYtes, thats a 5,000,000 byte file size. An iPhone that can transmit or receive data at Gigabit speeds, means that one could upload (or download) 50 full resolution images in ONE second. One one could download a full-length, 2 hour High Definition Movie in about 15 seconds.

🍎 By design, 802.11ac is intended to operate only in the 5 GHz band. This avoids much of the interference at 2.4 GHz, including Bluetooth headsets, microwave ovens, and provides a strong incentive for users to upgrade their mobile devices to be dual band so that the 5 GHz band is more universally usable. This choice also streamlines the IEEE process by avoiding the possibility of contention between 802.11 and 802.15 proponents.

🍎 Asus RT-AC66U 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless, at $189 these new Routers handle 5G. RT-AC66U offers very fast Wi-Fi on the 5GHz frequency band, both with Wireless-N clients and AC clients. In fact it’s the fastest of the few 802.11ac routers currently available on the market. The router also has very good range and its USB ports provide more than just the support for external storage and printers.

🍎 To put Apple’s reported order in perspective, the Apple sold 51 million iPhones during its fiscal quarter ending Dec. 28th, 2013. Apple is anticipating a very large a leap in sales.

🍎 The iPhone 6 may be fitted with a super-strong Sapphire crystal display, a more advanced camera, lens, image stabilization, an f2.0 aperture, and perhaps wireless charging. In addition, there are rumors that the iPhone 6 will feature a faster new A8 chip with a quad-core CPU and graphics.

🍎 According to a Citigroup Global-Markets analyst, cited by the Commercial Times in China, Apple’s smartphone shipments are expected to rise a whopping 23% in 2014, compared to 13% increase in sales last year.

🍎 IMHO if Apple delivers the iPhone 6 with a Display that contains a meaningful increase to 4.75" or 5.0" Apple iPhone will sell in huge numbers.

🍎 Overall, analysts in IDC predict that smartphone growth will slow somewhat in 2014 to 19.3% growth, down from 39.2% growth factor in 2013.

🍎 The reason: average smartphone prices keep dropping, as demand shifts to China. In other words, the iPhone 6 will likely be a huge seller, helping it stay ahead of the industry average in terms of growth and profitability.

🍎 Note that Galaxy S5 was a big flop, disappointing users, investors, and Samsung, as demand for Samsung’s newest offering was not very exciting. If the iPhone goes to a 5" display its Demand will Explode.
