According to latest rumors about iPhone 6 release, Cupertino giant intends to utilize Sapphire glass to make more durable displays, and the company would be the first one to use LiquidMetal in its devices. But the consumers are more interested in other features, than in the iPhone 6’s display and carcass.
The future sounds bright, if we’re referring to Apple’s innovations in the field of displays and carcasses. At first, they were only rumors, but gradually, they were confirmed indirectly, after we found out that Apple got patent for using Sapphire glass and LiquidMetal to make a super iPhone that can’t be cracked easily.
Apple intends to release two variants of the iPhone 6: with a 4.7-inch display that should be launched in September, and a 5.5-inch iPhone, whose release wasn’t set yet. In October, the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 will be launched also, and most probably Apple’s second version of iPhone will be released after that.
Plastic carcasses don’t impress everybody
Some users would pay 100 more dollars on an iPhone that comes with a wider display. The iPhone 5s had more success than the iPhone 5C because it came with a metal carcass and consumers don’t really like polycarbonate plastic carcasses.
Who wouldn’t want a cheap iPhone?
Apple doesn’t want to increase the iPhone 6’s internal storage from 16 GB to 32 GB and charge an additional 100 dollars, while it can sell the device at the price of 299 dollars and users will expand its internal memory, if they want to. These are called low-price consumers and they’d prefer to wait one year to pass until a phone cheapens, instead of buying it at a high price. For example, now, a 32 GB iPhone 5s costs 299 dollars on-contract, and next year its price will drop 100 dollars.
Other features expected
Customers are expecting from the new iPhone 6 to come with a longer battery life, a more advanced camera and a larger screen.
