Apple is expected to debut its new iPhone 6 at a media event on Sept. 9. The exact details of the launch haven’t been revealed, but rumors abound about the event and the types of new features the phone may include. Here are a few of them.

  • If Apple keeps with tradition, the phone will be released for sale on Sept. 19, a Friday, according to Apple Insider.
  • There are supposedly two versions of the phone coming, one with a 4.7-inch screen and a 5.5-inch option that’s designed to challenge Samsung’s larger-screened phones, according to Re/code.
  • To keep up with the expected demand, The Wall Street Journal says Apple is asking suppliers to make between 70 million and 80 million phones by Dec. 30.
  • The new phones are expected to be lighter and thinner, with a better camera, according to Mac Rumors. They’re also supposed to resemble the Apple iPod Touch.
  • One of the latest rumors pertains to more battery life. There’s expected to be much more of it in the new phones, according to Apple Insider. The site says that a new 2,100mAh battery may be installed in the next generation of iPhones, meaning a 45.8 percent increase from the current 1,440mAh model used in the iPhone 5s.
