iPhone 6 rumours: From NFC and VoLTE to sapphire displays

Apple is hosting a media event Sept. 9 at the Flint Center for Performing Arts, near its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Although Apple is expected to unveil its first new product line since 2010 at the event--its long-rumoured wearable that many have dubbed the iWatch--the main draw is expected to be Apple's announcement of the next iteration of the iPhone, which will likely be called the iPhone 6.

FierceWireless has compiled six of the most prominent iPhone 6 rumours, with a special focus on the wireless technologies that may or may not make it into the final design.

Apple is expected to announce two new variants of the iPhone at the event, one with a 4.7-inch display and the other with a 5.5-inch screen. There are rumours that the 5.5-inch version will be called the iPhone 6L.

This is likely going to be the biggest iPhone launch ever. According to a July report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple asked its suppliers to produce between 70 million and 80 million units of the next iPhone by Dec. 30. Last year Apple ordered between 50 million and 60 million versions of the iPhone 5s and 5c. Click here to read our special report.
