Previously we have predicted that Apple will announce the iPhone 6 on the 9 September and it will go on sale on the 19 September in United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and China.

Re/code, who has a perfect track record when it comes to Apple rumours, has confirmed these dates. The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg have also confirmed that dates.

Apple’s iPhone 6 launch event will see the debut of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, which is expected to include a thinner, lighter chassis with an iPod-touch style design along with an A8 processor and an improved camera. The event may also see the introduction of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, which is said to be experiencing production issues and may ship to customers somewhat later than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, in late 2014 or early 2015.

In the past the iPhone has taken some time to get to South Africa. Last year was the earliest we have received the iPhone with the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c going on sale on the 15 November. We don’t expect the iPhone 6 to reach South Africa before this date.

We predict that the iPhone 6 will be available in South Africa on the 15 November 2014.

The Countdown has begun.
