Apple's WWDC: Hopes Fade for iPhone 6 Release Date

Channel partners, other businesspeople and general consumers who are clamoring for news about an iPhone 6 release date are likely to be disappointed by Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June, where it appears that Apple will once again focus more on software than hardware.

Despite recent rumors, Apple is unlikely to debut its next iPhone, referred to as iPhone 6, at the conference, Auto World News reported. Instead, the tech giant will likely showcase its newest operating system, expected to be called iOS 8. This doesn't come as a huge surprise; Apple has eschewed hardware announcements for software ones at WWDC for several years now.

More than 1,000 engineers will run hands-on labs and other events at the conference to teach attendees about iOS and OS x.

Apple has yet to announce the official launch of the next iPhone, which many speculate will actually be two phones, one with a 4.7-inch screen and one with a 5.5-inch display. This would be significantly larger than the current devices' screen sizes; other expected features include faster, improved processors; an upgraded camera, and perhaps the long-awaited near-field communications (NFC) technology for mobile payments.
