Following the rumors that suggested that Apple will unveil its next-generation iPhone on October 14th, a new report from Re/code appeared online on Tuesday that denies such suggestions and says that the new handset will be released on September 9th.

Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal confirmed the date of the iPhone 6 launch.
Russian government has recently asked Apple to give local intelligence agencies the source code of its iOS and Mac OS X.

According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, the release of Apple’s next-generation iPhone will take place not in September, as it was reported earlier, but on Tuesday, October 14th. Moreover, as noted by one of the company employees, October will be a very busy month for the guys from Cupertino. This indicates that there may be some other product launches. For example, Apple may unveil the long-anticipated iWatch and updated iPad Air and iPad mini.

As you probably know, the guys from Cupertino are used to seeding new major betas once in two or three weeks.

The device will come in six colors. As to the price of the updated portable player, it is expected to be $199. Good news for those who can’t live without music. Like me, for example.
