Apple's next iPhone could be announced on September 9

While Apple are, as always, keeping mum on the subject of the next generation of iPhones, the good news is there might not be much longer to wait. The tech company have scheduled a massive media event for the start of next month, and word on the grapevine is that they are using this platform to announce the much awaited iPhone 6 launch date.

While of course the company are staying silent on the matter, declining to comment either way, these rumours come from fairly reliable sources, one of which is 9to5Mac, who have a history of being well-informed of pre-event leaks. It's possible that Apple actually leaked the news themselves, only making a show of trying to keep things hushed up to retain an air of mystery and anticipation. It's this style of marketing – giving hints and leaving the customers wanting more – that drums up such interest and hype before any new Apple release

So, if the rumours are to be believed, we could be getting details of the latest iPhone offering very soon, and frankly we couldn't be more excited. In fact, if gossip is to be believed, we could be looking at not just one but two brand new iPhones! Much as the iPhone 5 came in two varieties, the S and C, the 6 is supposedly coming as two devices – big and bigger. With one reportedly boasting a 4.7 inch screen, the other may pack a whopping 5.5 inches, in order to meet growing demands for even larger phones. However, the two will most likely be thinner than ever, with some saying as thin as 6 mm (we'd love to see that!), and will have a more rounded look than the boxy iPhone 5

Some other consistent and substantiated rumours that have been flying around and have been hard to shake off are about improvements to the device itself, not just its aesthetic. We've heard tell of a fantastic new camera that is aiming to rival the Nokia Lumia offering, something that few other phone brands have managed to compete with. There could also be some amazing new fingerprint technology incorporated into the phone, which, if it does as promised, could revolutionise online buying – all you need is your thumb to buy something on iTunes! Add to that a new iOS with flagship features such as Healthbook, plus compatibility with the upcoming iWatch, and you've got an iPhone worth waiting for – except we can't wait! September 9th can't come soon enough.
