iPhone 6 release date
The iPhone 6 release date is virtually certain for September, which would fit in nicely with the rollout of the newly announced iOS 8.
More exactly, the iPhone 6 launch date momentum has been set for September 9, an idle Tuesday at the start of the month.
It's looking increasingly likely that we'll see more than one Apple handset this year, with a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch tablet - possibly dubbed the iPhone Air or the iPhone 6L - coming alongside. The latter was rumored to be pushed until later in the year, thanks to problems with the battery and production, but recent updates seem to say these have been solved.

Update: The most recent leak surrounding the look of the iPhone has been given to us by network China Telecom, which seems to have shown off the first press shot of the new iPhone.
The leak could be hoaxed, as to accidentally publish such an important picture on social networks seems unlikely
The home buttons also make an appearance, and a side pic of the tray 'confirms' the curved edge of the new iPhone.
We could see up to three models coming on September 9: an iPhone 5C sequel, an iPhone 6 and an iPhone Air, with the latter being a larger size to compete with the likes of the Galaxy Note 3, as tablets are becoming hugely popular in areas like Asia.
One thing you probably can expect is more premium metal to come your way with the iPhone 6, and Apple patents for liquid metal 3D printing suggest there may be a new way to form the sultry chassis on the new iPhone.
Aside from the change in size and shape the other visible difference is that the power button has been moved to the side of the handset, as it's going to be larger and hitting the top will be tricky. The rear of the phone will have a slightly protruding camera as Apple tries to keep things thin but pack in slightly more camera tech to keep pictures looking great.
This is seen in both the TMZ leak (as a final unit, apparently) and in components found by nowhere else.fr. The two tone flash, which gives great colour but was an odd oblong last time out, has been made circular to fit with the more rounded finish of the phone, it seems.
A set of dummy images from 9to5 Mac, show the new handset in gold, silver and grey and they more or less match the previous ones, with a rounded design and a power button on the side.
