Thread spotlight: Will you purchase the iPhone 6?

iphone_5s_6_sizes_no_bezelNow that we are beginning to learn more about what to expect from the next-generation iPhone, such as the potential for a 4.7-inch screen and improved sensors, the biggest question becomes: will you purchase the so-called “iPhone 6″ or not?

I currently have a Dell Latitude 10 which is nice but seeing as I  got my tax return I’m thinking of an upgrade up to 600$. I’ve debated the Venue 11 (or 10 i forgot) Pro or surface pro 1 so far. I’m looking for decent gaming performance in legacy apps. Also 4 GM RAM and NOT RT editions of Windows.

I have always dual booted Windows 8 on my MacBook Pro with Retina display, although I’m curious what users of the iFans community use. Let us know in the comments section down under.

Report: iPhone 6 production to begin in second half of this year

iphone_5s_6_sizes_no_bezelPegatron is expected to begin mass production of the next-generation iPhone in the second half of this year, according to the Chinese-language publication The Commercial Times. No further details or specifics are provided in the report, which is largely uncorroborated.

It has been reported for months that Apple is working on the so-called “iPhone 6,” which is expected to have a larger screen size and a sapphire crystal display. The company also potentially has a second new iPhone model in the works, although information remains limited at this point.
