iPhone 6 Said to Launch on Friday, September 19 in 32 GB and 64 GB Variants

Apple will look to launch the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 on Friday, September 19, according to a new report from Chinese web portal Tencent (Google Translate, via GforGames) citing inside sources. The news comes after German carrier Deutsche Telekom was reported to be informing customers of a similar release date for the device.

The report also notes that Apple will launch 32GB and 64GB capacities of the phone for 5,288 yuan ($846) and 6,288 yuan ($1008), indicating that Apple may launch the iPhone 6 without a 16GB model. Notably, 5,288 yuan is the current price for the 16GB iPhone 5s in China, while the 32GB iPhone 5s is listed at 6,088 yuan.

A September launch would be consistent with the past two iPhone launches, as Apple also typically launches new products on a Friday. A report from Bloomberg earlier this week also claimed that Apple may launch the larger 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 and the 4.7-inch version simultaneously, with previous reports indicating that issues with battery and display technology would hold up the larger device's launch.

In addition to a larger display, the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a thinner design, a faster A8 processor, and more. The iPhone 6 is also expected to feature an improved camera, with the larger 5.5-inch version exclusively utilizing optical image stabilization and the smaller device featuring an advanced lens module.

I registered just to ask this:

Why do you need a mobile phone with 128GB of space? I got 16GB and im not getting over 12GB in total.
2-3GB Spotify, then tons of photos, and games.


Some people do. Lots of music, lots of videos. And lots of apps. It's not unusual for iOS apps to be larger than 2GB these days. Also, videos these days are taking up more storage due higher quality. Plus there's always the element of 'better safe than sorry'.

The iWork apps that come with the phone, if you choose to accept -- that's already 4GB or so before you've even started. 16GB is pathetic in 2014 and 32GB should be the absolute minimum. Plus it's not like it's costing Apple much -- component difference for Apple between 16-32GB isn't more than a couple of dollars.

There are loads of other reasons as well for 128GB that I can't think of off the top of my head; I'm sure another few MR members will help me out :)

24.6GB Photos & Camera
23.2GB Music

Not much room for everything else. Currently only 76MB free.

UGH what is with people that are always like "Why would anyone need a bigger screen" "Why would anyone need more space". Geez stop being so narrow minded.

How about videos for example!

Wow. You're doing it wrong.


No he's not, 64GB is nothing these days, if you take 1080p videos you run out of space very fast. Plus most hi-end games are 1GB+ in size.

128GB should be an option.

Perhaps a rumoured $100 premium is not a real premium, but the evidence of 5.5'' model staying on current prices, and 4.7'' being $100 cheaper?

And I would need 128Gb model of 5.5'', thank you very much ;)
