????? ????? ????? (the “third wave”)
Yes, you read that correctly. No sooner did our sources tell us that, than we got a message over the Apple support forums telling us that the stage 2 stage will be rolling out in a couple weeks time. What’s particularly interesting is the timing of this, as we’re still not familiar with any plans to unveil an iPhone 12 on September 7th. In fact, I think if anything, Apple’s holding firm on its own plan for the iPhone 6 launch. What’s more exciting however, is the fact that that the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are no longer being produced under the Apple brand.
If you’ve been following along, you might remember that Apple was working on a smaller screen size as a part of the iPhone 6 release lineup, until it was revealed that this would be impossible in order to fit all of the current iPhone 6 screens into the smaller screen size that Apple has under wraps, but you can see for yourself. The two screens are the 4.7-inch and 6.1-inch screens. It’d be nice if Apple could give us some information on the next generation iPhone, but so far it’s just more talk in order to keep the iPhone 6 release cycle alive and to hold the next iPhone launch as a special event.
However, it looks like this won’t be the case, as we can see for yourself via the below image from the unofficial App Store app, “iPhone OS X 10.12.4”, which shows us what the next iteration of the iPhone will look like. Here’s to hoping that these next iPhone models will be the last under the Apple brand, or at least have the luxury of being a separate device for the next generation iPhones, which are rumored to be coming from Samsung after the next iPhone event.
