And now that we are less than 24 hours from the big event, let’s go over 6 main rumors around it:
1. It won’t be cheap!
According to the rumors, Apple will charge £80 to £160 more for the iPhone 6.
The latest pricing rumors claims that the price will be around £500/$858/AU$915 for the 4.7-inch model, and the 5.5-inch model is likely to start at around £563/$966/AU$1030.
2. There are two models
Many major publications have confirmed that the iPhone 6 will come in two different sizes: a 4.7 inch model and a 5.5 inch model.
3. Totally different design
Pictures of the iPhone 6 have leaked all over the Internet, and we already know that it will measure anywhere between 5.5 millimeters thin, to 7.1 millimeters thin. Based on some rumors, it will come in three colors: silver, black, and gold. The power button place also changed, and it will be placed on the right side of the device for easy access. The volume buttons are still on the left side, but they are slimmer. The home button is expected to remain in the same place.

4. A new sapphire crystal display
According to Laptopmag , Apple recently opened a new manufacturing plant in Mesa, Arizona for producing sapphire crystal displays, meaning the iPhone 6′s screen could be much more durable and scratch resistant than current models. The facility could pump out as many as 116 million 5-inch displays per year, as 9to5Mac reports. Yay, say goodbye to cracked iPhone screens!

5. The battery is way bigger
In August, a picture of a 2,915mAh battery appeared on Nowhereelse.fr and the publication claimed that it was the battery for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6.
This isn’t very surprising considering that the iPhone 6 is expected to feature a larger display with a higher resolution than that of the iPhone 5s. It will need that extra capacity to power its larger display without decreasing the iPhone’s battery life.
6. Reversible USB
Charging the battery will become much easier, as the iPhone 6 is expected to ship with a reversible USB cable that will charge regardless of how it’s inserted into your USB port!
That’s about all we have for now, but in less than 24 hours we will all know much more!
Don’t forget to watch the special event here, and then share your thoughts with us. Do you think you are going to buy a new iPhone 6?
