iPhone 6 Said to Launch September 19

Mark your calendars: the iPhone 6 will allegedly launch on September 19, at least according to a new report from Tencent Digital News¬†out of China today. The date isn’t that much of a stretch, however. It happens to fall on a Friday, which is the day of the week that Apple typically launches iPhones, and it lines up with a date allegedly provided by Deutsche Telekom back in May.

Today’s report suggests that Apple will only release 32GB and 64GB variants of the iPhone 6 on September 19, bringing the 32GB price down to match the price of today’s 16GB iPhone 5s – at least in China. That might mean Apple is ditching the 16GB model altogether, which seems a little surprising at least considering the company’s efforts to push its iCloud storage options. Also, today’s report makes no mention of when the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will launch, and the two are now largely expected to hit the market at the same time.

Keep in mind it’s possible this is just an educated guess for the iPhone 6 prediction. After all, there are only four Fridays in the month of September.
