If the latest Apple rumors are true, iPhone 5 owners might be hitting the lines for a 7th generation handset much sooner than they'd expected. New iPhone 6 release date rumors have started to pop up online even though Apple is known for launching one new model each year since the release of the first iPhone in 2007.
Additionally, developers claim to have seen "an entirely new version of the iPhone's operating system," which is said to be iOS 7.
As for features, the source says developers were unable to determine what would be available on the handset, but felt the iPhone 6 release date may coming by midyear. Other Apple rumors say the company is also working on newer iPad mini.
Is it all just a ruse, or will the latest Apple smartphone become old news so soon?
