新华网8月6日电 据科技博客网站Gizmodo报道，Re/code科技网站的约翰 帕克兹沃斯基称，9月9日苹果公司将举办 iPhone手机的发布会。届时，公司很有可能公布 iPhone 6手机。距离上一场 iPhone手机发布会几乎有一年的时间了。
尽管帕克兹沃斯基是苹果公司消息最可靠的来源之一，但是我们已经看到太多关于 iPhone 6发布的相互矛盾的消息。所以你只须像以往一样，等等看吧。同样，也不清楚我们在能购买新设备前还需要等多久。无论如何，现在是好机会恶补一下 iPhone 有哪些传言。
就算过去六个月左右的时间里你生活在洞穴里，你都应该知道苹果公司即将发布的新款手机将配备大屏幕。它很有可能被称为 iPhone 6，而有些人认为苹果公司的新手机会有不同大小的版本，可能是5.5英寸屏和4.7英寸屏，这对于当前的 iPhone 5s的4英寸屏是一个轻微的碰撞，虽然可靠来源已经发图片展示了（如上图）。
至于新屏幕是否由蓝宝石制成仍是一个谜。为什么这点很重要？蓝宝石屏的 iPhone 手机可能会更坚硬。
苹果的上一款手机，5S主要在底层上有升级，但是对于iPhone 6，你可以期待它有重大的设计升级。再一次据泄露消息显示，可靠的泄密，其外形看起来像最初的iPhone 手机，荧光银的后盖和圆角的边框。大多数泄露的资料图都配备了5.5英寸屏。
然而，iPhone 6 手机当然不仅仅是新外观和大屏。新设备的细节改进还不甚清楚。但是一些泄露资料显示了逻辑板，看起来与iPhone 当前的生产线大致相同，新手机很有可能升级成更强健的A8处理器。最近消息称iPhone 6 可能携带NFC技术和升级的无线芯片。有些人更是认为 LTE广播也会升级，而且无线充电也能实现。
大量对硬件的猜测纯属投机。但是，对iOS8的改进至少能使照相机技术有一个飞跃。对于改进iOS8的其他猜想暗示很有可能会增加一个新硬件来支持HealthKit 和一整套健康跟踪功能。同时，新的Metal游戏开发工具让一些人期待 iPhone 6将配备控制台级别的图像引擎。至少苹果公司称它比现有的图形引擎快10倍。
说到iOS 8系统，现在正好有条好消息：新的iOS系统会给所有的iPhone带去许多有趣的新功能——好吧，iPhone 4和更老的机型则没有。
虽然iOS 8能够给iPhone 6带去许多设计上升级，它的核心其实在于后端。人们对HealthKit接口和其对应的的健康相关app都相当期待，因为这两者的结合会将对个人健康状况的监测数据进行集中管理，甚至能让这些数据物尽其用。
说到物尽其用，iOS 8的Extensions特性能够让各个app之间得以相互交流。这意味着开发者们可以开发针对其他app的工具。例如，必应翻译工具就能够在任何外语内容里被调用。所有的app都可以使用苹果的Touch ID,这将能够让用户们永远摆脱各种账号密码混淆所带来的的困扰。
iOS 8的其他升级虽然大都只是渐进式的提高，但却十分有用。HandOff能让设备在iOS和OS X系统之间无缝切换，这意味着你可以在iPhone上起草一封邮件，然后在MacBook Pro上面将其完成。你还可以在Mac上就打电话，发短信。
Report: Apple's Next iPhone Coming September 9
Re/code's John Paczkowski is reporting that Apple will hold an iPhone event on September 9. This is presumably when the company will announce the iPhone 6. The event also falls almost exactly one year after the last iPhone event.
Although Paczkowski is one of the most reliable sources of Apple news, we've seen all kinds of conflicting reports about the iPhone 6 launch. So you'll just have to wait and see, like always. And it's also unclear how long we'll have to wait and see before you can actually buy the new device. Nevertheless! Now is a great time to catch up on iPhone rumors.
In case you've been living in a cave the past six months or so, you should know that Apple isalmost definitely going to be releasing a new iPhone with a bigger screen. It's very possible it will be called the iPhone 6, and some think that Apple will offer the new phone in different sizes, perhaps a 5.5-inch and a 4.7-inch, which would be a slight bump to the current iPhone 5S's a 4-inch screen size. The jury is still out, however, on whether the new iPhone will feature a curved screen, though reliable sources have tweeted images that show just that.
It also remains a mystery whether the new screen will be made of sapphire. Why is that important? A sapphire iPhone would be a tougher iPhone.
Since Apple's last iPhone, the 5S, mostly included under-the-hood upgrades, though, you can definitely expect the iPhone 6 to feature a pretty significant design update. Leaks—again, reliable leaks and lots of them—show a new case that actually looks a lot like the original iPhone with a sleek silver back and curved edges. Most of the leaks show a case with a 5.5-inch screen size.
However, there will be more to the iPhone 6 than a new case and bigger screen. Details on the improvements to the device's guts are a little blurry, though. Though some of the leaks show a logic board that looks roughly the same as those in the current iPhone line, the new phone will almost certainly be upgraded to an more robust A8 processor. Recent reports also say the iPhone 6 will come with near field communication (NFC) technology as well as an upgraded Wi-Fi chip. Some people even think the LTE radio will get an upgrade, and wireless chargingwill become a reality.
A lot of speculation on the hardware is pure speculation. However, improvements in iOS 8 suggest that the camera technology will see upgrades at the very least. Other iOS 8 improvements hint at the possible addition of new hardware to support HealthKit and the suite of fitness tracking features that come with it. Meanwhile, the new Metal game development tool has some people thinking that the iPhone 6 will come with a console-level graphics engine. Apple, at least, says it's ten times better than the existing graphics engine.
Speaking of iOS 8, now is the perfect opportunity to remind you of all the fun new features the new operating system will bring to all iPhones—except iPhone 4 and older, boo hoo.
Whereas the iPhone 6 will feature a lot of design upgrades, iOS 8 is all about the backend. One thing people seem super excited about, again, is the HealthKit API and the corresponding Health app. Together, these two things will bring all of your fitness and health tracking to one place, and maybe even make that data useful.
Speaking of making things more useful, a very exciting new feature called Extensions will finally let apps talk to each other. That means that developers can build apps with specific toolkits for other apps to use, say a Bing translate tool that you can use for any foreign language content. All apps will also be able to use Touch ID, now, which could eliminate the need for usernames and passwords for good on iOS.
The rest of the iOS 8 updates are mostly incremental but inevitably relevant. HandOff will make switching between iOS and OS X devices completely seamless, meaning you can start writing an email on your iPhone and instantly finish on your MacBook Pro. You will also be able to make phone calls and send texts from your Mac.
Meanwhile, notifications will see some improvements, as will Spotlight. Siri will evidently get better, and so will iCloud with the introduction of iCloud Drive. The keyboard will also improve thanks to some Android-inspired features, and you'll finally have the ability to add third party keyboards. Read more about iOS 8 here.
Who knows! Apple's definitely thinking about making a smartwatch, and it's been reported that such a device is already in production. Don't expect to see anything at the September event, though.
