    Anyone else hearing that the iPhone 6 might come out in the first half of Apple's 2014 fiscal year? That would put release sometime around or before April... Apple previously released the iPad 3 in this time slot, on March 16th 2012.

    It's not beyond Apple to do this. The iPad 4 came out a mere 8 months after the iPad 3 in November of 2012. Could we see a new iPhone in 6 or 7 months?

    I wouldn't think so either... except they have done a mid-cycle release before with the iPad. Also, there are a lot of places reporting a possible 1st quarter 2014 iPhone 6.

    "The iPhone 6 release date is speculated to happen in the first quarter of next year, most probably in March"

    "as Apple recently released the iPhone 5S and 5C, pointing to the release date of the 6th generation of the giant's flagship smartphone sometime in first quarter of 2014"

    "Citigroup analyst Glen Yeung is predicting a surprisingly early iPhone 6 release date in the first quarter of 2014"

    and many many others echoing the same thing. 1st quarter 2014 for the iPhone 6.

    Just remember about analysts... the first 4 letters of the word tells all you need to know about most of 'em.

    The only way I see this happening is if it's marketed as something other than an iPhone.
    Something in between an iPhone or iPad, or an iWatch companion device, or something completely different.

    Or...Analysts make stuff up to keep their names in the news, and give their customers something to read.
    Remember, analysts are never wrong.
    If what they say doesn't come to pass its due to 'manufacturing difficulties, supply constraints, redesign', blah blah blah.
    They make up BS, then pile more BS on top until they appear correct.
    When it comes to Apple, very few of them are consistently right.

    iPad 4 was hardly mid cycle. Also iPad 3's. A5X just didn't have enough graphical power for the retina display. The iPad 3's performance was barley that of the iPad 2.

    I doubt it, considering it's redesigned and possibly a larger screen. This is one of the reason I got a 5S, I can't wait another year for the 6. But then again, I upgrade every year .

    I think a lot of people who used their upgrades on the 5S would be extremely honked off if this happened.

    Based on the way things are now with 5S production and back orders I wouldn't think that a 6 is coming in 3 months. They usually need that die down period where the 5S is not flying off the shelves.
    If they had plans of releasing a 6 in January they must have changed them due to the response to the 5S.

    Apple isn't Samsung, they don't release a new phone before you can swipe your card for the current one.

    The same thing was said last year about the 2013 models...there was even an influx of people who signed up here who swore up and down that it was going to be released in June and made a tsunami of threads discussing it (even up into June where we just sat around while crickets chirped and these people just faded away into oblivion).

    Where would I put my money? That the iPhone 6 will be released at the same time the iPhone's were released last year...Fall 2014.

    I'm due an upgrade on my iPhone 5 in March so I would love for the new iPhone to be released then, or soon after. Unfortunately, I just don't think that will happen based on the release dates for previous models. However, I would dearly love to be proved wrong on this though!

    I miss the good old days when a product would last for a good 2-3 years before a new model would come out. Meh lol

    I feel like with 7.1 not even out yet, and they would want IOS8 for the next iPhone I find this highly unlikely, unless by some weird chance they just decide to make 7.1 IOS8 which I do not see happening. I think this could be a year that it is a little longer, since IOS7 was clearly rushed by the amount of bugs that are still yet to be fixed.
