While tech enthusiasts hope against hope that Apple will adopt Android-style display dimensions, Tim Cook suggests that Cupertino will stand pat with the current screen specs for the iPhone 6.

With the onset of larger-screened smartphone designs, those who follow consumer electronics continue to bemoan Apple’s reticence to adopt larger, more Android-like screen dimensions for the iPhone. After retaining the original iPhone’s 3.5-inch screen up until last year, the expanded display on the iPhone 5 was met with middling reviews, as the elongated screen failed to give some users the large, phablet-like real estate they’re looking for on future iPhones.

For those who are holding out hope that the iPhone 6 will finally debut a large, wide screen, recent comments from Tim Cook suggest that Apple is not looking to significantly revamp the iPhone 6′s display dimensions anytime soon. Read More

iPhone 6 Going To Get 4G Treatment In 2012?

Posted by Michael Nace under iPhone 6 Opinion, iPhone 6 Rumors on Friday Jun 17, 2011

Rumors are abounding that a 3G iPhone 5 may have a 4G competitor in 2011 with the rumored “Nexus 4G.” Does this mean that a 4G iPhone 6 in 2012 is likely?

Year after year, 4G is becoming the holy grail for smartphones. And with ever-escalating rumors that the iPhone 5 may turn out to be more of a refresh than a revolutionary new iPhone iteration, the prospect of a groundbreaking iPhone 6 design that features a 4G radio is beginning to take shape.

Reliable sources are indicating that 4G LTE will make its way into the smartphone realm in 2011 with Google’s Nexus 4G, meaning that a 3G iPhone 5 could enter the fray at an immediate disadvantage. PopHerald reports: Read More

An early mock-up of the iPhone 6 by Mac Funamizu

As more and more people get excited about the iPhone 5, it is looking more and more like the first 4G iPhone will be the iPhone 6 and not the iPhone 5. Read wy.

At the time of this post, we all find ourselves in between the somewhat lackluster iPhone 4 and hopes of a groundbreaking new iPhone 5. Also within this current void, we the mobile phone users of the world, also find ourselves straddling the 3G and 4G networks; the big mobile companies — particularly Verizon — are pouring millions of dollars worth of resources into building a 4G network of the future, and given what we know about it, 4G will be a game changer. And it isn’t too far away.

Unfortunately for all of the iPhone 5 hopefuls out there, the 2011 version of the new iPhone is unlikely to be 4G-ready.

Given the unbalance is 4G assets between AT&T and Verizon at the moment, chances are, the iPhone 6 will be Apple’s wonder device that finally taps into the world of 4G.

iPhoneAlley.com recently proclaimed that “the sixth-generation iPhone will support Verizon’s (self-labelled) 4G LTE network,” and pointed to a recent quote from Verizon Wireless CEO Dan Mead wherein he hinted at the prospects of a 4G LTE iPhone 6, when he said, “”You’ll see more coming from Apple on LTE, they understand the value proposition of LTE and I feel very confident that they are going to be a part of it.”

While it may seem like a stretch to infer that the iPhone 6 will include 4G capabilities from Mead’s blissful, open-ended quote, his perspective on the matter, together with the timetable for a fully-function 4G network, clearly places the prospect of a 4G iPhone on the iPhone 6.
