iPhone 6 is Not Curved

The iPhone 5S is a mega hit for Apple. The iPhone 5C looks like is not such a big hit. We still have to wait and see how Apple is selling us the sales numbers in the next Earnings call. The iPhone 6 rumors are of course already around, with some even saying that Apple will release it already in May. Just forget about it. Apple will stick to its annual release schedule now. The iPhone 6 will come in fall at the same time the iPhone 5S dropped.

The question is of course what will be the big thing in the iPhone 6. It will not be a curved display according to the Korean Herald. I could not care less. I do not think a curved display is doing anything for usability. If we get to the point to fold or roll up our iPhone, then I see the benefit of flexible displays. 

The iPhone 6 needs to have something else. It is likely featuring a bigger display than the iPhone 5S. It will be of course again faster and possibly even thinner. Maybe it finally gets rid of the physical home button. I would like to see a single smooth surface on the iPhone 6 and it definitely does not to be curved.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
