Hello everyone, I hope you're doing well.
For today's article I thought I'd share some Iphone (6) news. The article I'm referencing was published by Digital Trends (DT) on Feb 7th, 2014, but it seems to be one of fair speculation/fact. I will link the article HERE, but I will go into some of the details in which they are speculating on.

The first rumor we can probably put to rest is the name. They mentioned that given the past history we can safely assume it will be iPhone 6, I'm putting my money there as well, but who's to say that they can't change it up.
This next rumor is one that caught my attention, sapphire screens. from what I know do know about sapphire screens they are a little pricey, but they are extremely durable when compared to any other materials used for smart phone screens, they have a video showing just how awesome these screens are. Digital Trends (DT) noted that Apple and GT Advanced have a contract that could place sapphire screens on the new phone; in addition, the quantity involved would help lower the cost of sapphire overall. To further place this as fact rather than fiction, Apple's new Facility in Arizona is set to create more jobs and create new components, probably the new sapphire screens?
I don't want to get hung up on talking about the screen, but DT brought up the possibility of having solar charging capability added on to the superman like screen. Real or not I think that's something that's worth mentioning.
One rumor that has circulated is the possibility of a bigger screen size. Here is the concept art associated with this possible claim.
I don't know how other users will perceive it, but some actually like that the iPhone sizes haven't changed over the years while others would prefer a larger screen. I'm not on one side or the other, but a bigger screen that uses a near indestructible screen with possibility of solar charging...I'll take it. (even without the solar charging).
To get more details on this article please refer to this LINK that will take you to the original article posted by DT. I only highlighted some of the rumors, big ones though. Of course we'll have to wait for any official information till around may or June, so until then it's all smoke and mirrors (still fun to think about though).
