What gives? The latest iPhone 6 rumors say that the iPhone 6 is not curved. Why should it in the first place.
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.
