iPhone 6: Design Transformation Includes Charge Change

Official news is yet to emerge surrounding Apple’s new iPhone 5 handset. For months now, the speculation regarding its specs, name, possible price, carriers, appearance and so on have all been rife, its a job to know the majority of the time, what to believe!

Even though the iPhone 5 is rumored to be making an entrance in September, news has already been turning towards a new iPhone 6 for 2012. Snippets of information have come through including news of a bigger A6 processor to that of an A5 CPU possibly being included in the iPhone 5.

According to AppleInsider, the new 2012 Apple device could also launch with a complete “new smaller and lighter revamped” design, something of which has been mentioned on the iPhone 5. Reports are pointing to the 5 having a 3.7-inch display and feeling lighter, so how much smaller Apple will take the 6 is anybody’s guess? News also circling is that Apple may release a more affordable iPhone appealing to a greater audience of customers, this has been mentioned for the iPhone 5 and 6.

What interested us though, is the rumored inclusion of a “new charging method.” This comes from a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report that speaks about the iPhone 6 being launched with a 8MP rear camera, something of which can now be seen on handsets such as the HTC Sensation and Samsung Galaxy S II. Along with this, some 25 million units of the iPhone 6 are rumored to start in production towards the end of this year, though as the news states, the revamped model may be “complicated and difficult to assemble,” therefore could result in production issues.

Even though a new iPhone charging method could be on the cards, concrete information is yet to surface, Apple patents for this could or could not see the light of day, possibilities before now have mentioned the use of a possible iPad dock with inductive coils, or that iOS devices could be connected via the Thunderbolt port as oppose to the USB point.

At this stage in the game, its difficult to ascertain whether we will indeed see the iPhone 5 this year despite rumors of a September entrance. Many big named handsets are on their way around the same time, including the Motorola Droid Bionic and Photon 4G, Samsung Hercules and HTC Eternity, so in our eyes, surely it will pay for Apple to get their new addition in quickly, or maybe not?

We’ll leave that question open to you? Tell us what you would like to see on the iPhone 5/6? Will you be tempted by a new Apple phone and do you think Apple should offer it at a more affordable price?
