iPhone 6 rumors

Phones
[MUSIC] The Apple iPhone 6. Some of you are already waiting in line for it, but the sane among you are probably waiting for a little more information. Unfortunately, Apple isn't saying anything. Tim Cooke hasn't even admitted that they're working on a new iPhone. That leaves us with the rumors. I'm Donald Bell, and in this top five, I'm counting down the five iPhone 6 rumors worth paying attention to. Starting off at number five: new buttons. Hardly earth-shattering news, but the mock-ups and leaked case designs we've seen so far all show a new oval design for the volume buttons and a power button that's moved from the top of the iPhone down to the side. Maybe you like it, maybe you don't. But it's gonna take a minute to get used to the new layout. And number four, a more expensive price. Rumor has it that Apple has been negotiating with carriers to raise the price of the iPhone by 100 bucks. Sounds crazy, but with the relative drought of compelling phones on the shelves right now, Apple might be able to have the leverage to pull this off. Assuming that the carrier subsidy will eat up half of that price. We might be just looking at about a $50 bump in your phone. That may be not such a big deal, but if you were hoping for a less expensive iPhone, I wouldn't count on it. Coming it at number three, a fall release. The Apple worldwide developer's conference is just around the corner, but you won't be getting your hands on that new iPhone until the fall, that's a fairly predictable strategy for Apple, they stuck to a September, October iPhone rollout since 2011. Now some rumors say that the phone could be finished as early as August, but Apple's in no position to rush, bet Tim Cook will stick to the script on this. At number two, a bigger screen. You know how Apple spent all that time last year convincing you that the current four inch screen size was the optimal size for the human hand? And yet somehow in the meantime, Samsung has unloaded millions of Galaxy phones without giving its customers carpal tunnel. Now Apple may keep a discounted iPhone 5 around to keep their small hand fans happy but expect a significant jump in screen size for the iPhone 6. And that leaves us with the number one juiciest rumor for the iPhone 6 more models. No not, not those models though honestly a woman at a Apple product launch would be a refreshing change. Rumor is that there will be three distinct models of iPhone. You're gonna get the reheated leftovers of the iPhone 5 as the entry level model, then a 4.7 inch iPhone 6 due out in the fall, and then a 5.5 inch iPhone phablet. Early next year, it seems unthinkable after all of Apple's hype on the virtues of smaller phones. But this 5.5 inch LCD panel keep popping up in Apple supply chains. Now I'll be intrigued if this actually comes out. And I'll be even more curious to see if all you Galaxy Note fans can contain your smug feelings of superiority when this thing hits the market. So there you go, five of the most notable, tantalizing rumors circulating about the iPhone 6. For even more rumors, head over to cnet.com/iphone-6 and more top-fives from me top5.cnet.com. I'm Donald Bell, thanks for watching!
