The iPhone 6S Has Been Rumored to Launch in August This Year
Early this year, most of the people have thought that there will be an iPhone 7 and 7 Plus coming this year which will be a major upgrade to last year’s versions. However and most, unfortunately, only an iPhone 6S and 6S Plus is coming this year to the market for end users to buy. The good news is that a Chinese website, United Daily News claims that the newest version of the iPhone will come as soon as August this year.
The Brand New Version of IPhone
Most of the people have thought that Apple has changed its policy with the new versions of the company’s popular smartphone releases. Apple’s policy hasn’t changed, unfortunately, they are still releasing a whole new phone every two years only, they are releasing tech upgrades in the odd years and new design and versions in the even years. That’s the Apple we have known over the years sadly. Sometimes I wish if Steve Jobs would be alive, maybe that genius could make the company more creative and more focused on their base customers and their end users’ needs. Apple is doing the same thing over and over the years. They release a product, they design it greatly, most people like it, however, they don’t do other major improvements for it next year, no, they only upgrade the hardware of the gadget and they implement some very minor features to the device. In my opinion, they are doing this since they don’t want to spend much manpower for this task, nor they want to spend money for new features. This is the laziest thing a company can do. Just look at one of the major competitors of Apple: Samsung. The Korean company releases one of the most worthy rivals for the iPhone series, the Galaxy S smartphones. Samsung is making phones with a new design, new hardware and new features every year. They spend lots of money to do so, however, they clearly benefit from it. Tons of people are switching from Apple to Samsung in the category of smartphones since they seem to think that Apple is not caring for them and they devices are overpriced. So, in my opinion, Apple should, if not must, change their policy of new releases, it would be pretty great if the company would release a completely new device every year for at least the iPhone series.
For those who are looking forward to buying the new iPhone 6S, we don’t really advise you to pre-order the device until you know any further features. At the current moment, I wouldn’t upgrade my iPhone 6 to an iPhone 6S since there won’t be any major improvements, but the minor ones are not really worth it too. Many people think that the iPhone 6S will come with Apple’s in-works operating system for smartphones, the IOS 9, however, that has been confirmed that the new version of the OS won’t be released with the iPhone 6S. Apple will most probably wait for the iPhone 7 release (which is expected in 2016) with the release of the new OS patch. So, for those who are planning to buy the new iPhone, because they think that there will be a new IOS released with it, don’t buy it, since there won’t be.
I think that the current versions of the iPhones (iPhone 6 and 6 Plus) are pretty greatly designed and good smartphones, despite for their weaknesses in the hardware area. You don’t necessarily want to upgrade to the upcoming iPhone 6S or 6S plus since it would be a waste of money. Let’s see, you would want to sell your phone first then buy the brand new version of the iPhone. You could only sell your smartphone for ¾ of the price that you have bought it previously. Of course, this could be only true if you have not purchased your phone at the first price since you could only sell your phone for like 2/3 of the original price, which is quite bad.
My opinion on the upcoming iPhone 6S is: let’s wait what Apple will announce for us and see if the device will worth the price after that.
