We all know it’s coming, in fact in just less than a week we will know all the juicy details, but in the meantime there are plenty of rumours to keep us going. So what are some of the big ones on everyones mind?
This one seems pretty likely with all the leaked pictures we have seen and also with the competition increasing the size of their displays so dramatically. Will we see a larger iPhone display? I’d like to think so. I like the current size of the iPhone, but it is pretty tiny, especially after using other devices for a large amount of time. a 4.7″ display seems like a good size to settle one and if there is also a larger 5.5″ device to go along side the 4.7″ that would really make things interesting.
Will we finally see Apple embrace NFC in their next device? Although some would see this as Apples attempt to play catch up I honestly think if Apple implement NFC in their device then we will see the market finally change. NFC has been around for a long time but no one has really taken it seriously. Apple have the power, influence and ability to really kick NFC into life, gaining a good range of partners to bring it into the retail sector. Could they have what it takes to really spark mobile payments?
Now here’s one I really hope isn’t going to come true. Some believe that Apple will kill the 3.5mm jack and allow the use of headphones through the lightning dock only. Although I could see Apple stepping in this direction, allowing them more control over what headphones their customers use, I really hope this doesn’t come true.
A super strong display that only diamond can scratch? Sign me up! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled my gadget from my pocket only to find a brand new scratch on the screen. If Apple can bring this rumour to life then I’d be more than happy.
Well there isn’t a conclusion, it’s all just rumour. We have to wait until September 9th when Apple will unveil their next iPhone. Apple have a lot to prove, so I’m excited by what we may see on the day. In the meantime all we can do is wait!
