    There you have it folks. Apple has scheduled an event for the new iPhone on September 9th.




    This according to re/code, which is rock solid.

    Darn! My guess was the 8th. So the release maybe the 19th with iOS 8 release the 17th? There's still room for some rumors. :D

    I might still be right about the release date on the 19th for the 6 and the 17th for iOS 8. :p

    I think it would be surprising for them to announce one model and wait a few months to introduce a second. I think what's more likely is that if one is 'delayed', they'll just announce a later release date. I'm thinking similar to what they did with the iPad 3G. Was that the model I'm thinking of? It wasn't available on the same day as the WiFi-only model?

    I don't think they want one model to overshadow the other, as happened with the 5c/5s release.

    The iPhone 5s overshadowed the iPhone 5c because it was entirely new. The iPhone 5c was nothing more than an unapologetically plastic repackaging of the iPhone 5. That's the reason for the increased interest for the 5s over the 5c.

    If there are two iPhone 6 models in different sizes, you won't see one completely dominate. I'd venture to guess most will opt for the 4.7-inch. I think the 5.5-inch, if it happens, will be like the gold iPhone 5s. Available, but limited in supply.

    No camping out for me. I'll stay up and pre-order when it's available online and then wait for FedEx by the front window like a crack addict waiting for his fix to arrive.

    I'd rather order online from Apple too, but I have this $50 gift card from Best Buy. Last time I dealt with Best Buy (when I bought my 5S), they screwed up and didn't activate my visual voicemail, so I had to call AT&T. They got it straightened out, but still... Oh well. I guess it's worth $50. heh

    I've always ordered online, besides my first iPhone.

    That's how one must wait for FedEx. They're known to barely tap on the door, then post their ticket and run.

    If there are two sizes I just really really hope the specs are the same so I can choose solely on which screen size I want.

    They didn't even knock 2 years ago when I upgraded to the 5. I was downstairs waiting for them and when I checked the tracking number it said delivered and the phones were on my doorstep.
