The iPhone 6 release date will be in 2014 and it’s looking increasingly likely that we’ll see it in September, which would fit in nicely with the rollout of the newly announced iOS 8.

Apple has launched the last few iPhones at a special event in September, so the smart money has always been on September 2014 for the iPhone 6’s arrival.

It’s looking increasingly likely that we’ll see more than one Apple handset this year though. KGI’s analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has thrown his hat into the ring and seems to think a duo of new iPhones will be released, with a 4.7-inch iPhone coming out towards the end of the third quarter and a 5.5-inch iPhablet hitting the market late in the fourth quarter.

Reuters reports that Apple has gone on a massive hiring spree at factories in China, so it’s clearly preparing to take the iPhone 6 into production, which makes sense if the handset is launching just a few months from now.

After trawling through all the iPhone 6 rumors techradar kicked their render machine into gear and came up with a concept of what we’d like Apple’s eighth generation flagship smartphone to look like. Check out the creation in the video below.
