There’s a date for the iPhone 6 announcement: Sept. 9.
According to influential tech blog Re/Code, Apple will formally unveil its latest smartphone next month.
The device is expected to feature a 4.7-inch screen, larger than any iPhone before it. Apple has also been said to be working on a 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6, but recent reports have said Apple may not announce that version until later.
By releasing a larger-screen iPhone, Apple hopes it can better compete against the likes of Samsung and HTC, whose devices feature screens larger than the 4-inch iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 6 also is expected to be thinner.
