The iPhone 6: Are Two Release Dates Better Than One?

It looks like we may be getting two new national holidays instead of one. According to Digitimes, Apple will release two versions of the rumored iPhone 6 on separate dates.
The new strategy is reportedly being considered because "Apple does not want to repeat the mistake it made in 2013 when it launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C simultaneously," the article explains.
It's believed that releasing both models on the same day hurt overall sales, particularly those of the iPhone 5C.
Tech guru Ben Lovejoy disagrees with that idea, and insists that Apple was unaffected by the way it rolled out its last two iPhones. "While there is evidence to suggest that the balance of sales between the two handsets differed from Apple’s expectations, the reason appears to be that more people than predicted chose to buy the more expensive model. Hardly a mistake," Lovejoy wrote.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be available in two sizes, a 4.7-inch model, and a 5.5-inch model, which will be the largest iPhone to date.
Until now, it was widely expected that Apple would unveil the new iPhone in early September, with a shipping date schedule for later in the fall. If Digitimes is correct, we may still see an iPhone 6 this autumn, with the second model coming early next year.
Until an official announcement is made however, let the rabid iPhone 6 speculation continue. Also, iPhone 6 speculation: new Olympic sport? (Daily Mail)
