iPhone 6 rumors running rampant: Here’s the latest

The iPhone 6 rumor mill has been heating up this week. I’ll give you a quick rundown of the latest, and it’ll take you less than 3 minutes to get caught up with all the hottest scuttlebutt.

The biggest news comes from the South China Morning Post, saying that the new iPhones will arrive in September with 4.7- and 5.5-inch sapphire screens. This contradicts a report from earlier this week, which had the sapphire screens nixed.




The publication adds that the screens will have higher resolution than today’s 326ppi (pixels per inch) iPhone 5s and 5c, rocking a finer, more Retina-ish 441ppi screen on each of the alleged larger handsets.

Finally, the screens for those phones will be flat, contrary to fantasies of curved iPhone 6 displays. And there won’t be any more iPhone C models, which haven’t sold as well as Apple had hoped.

Looking ahead, a tantalizing detail for 2015 iPhones will appeal to selfie aficionados. According to Japanese business site Nikkei, instead of that crappy OmniVision 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera on today’s iPhones, the new camera for future iPhones (iPhone 7?) will be made by Sony, and it’ll reportedly be a lot like the iPhone’s current 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.

Too bad we’ll have to wait until 2015 for that.
