Well it's that time of year again. As you can imagine Mrs PQ and I are quite busy getting ready for the arrival of iPhone 6 in September. We do have a couple surprises coming prior to September though. Keep an eye on Instagram and our newsletter as we announce some beautiful products coming in a few weeks.
Regarding the iPhone 6, we have been following all the various tech news sites to glean as much information as possible and incorporate that into our new designs. The BIG news is that Apple is clearly going to launch a larger iPhone. Most sources agree that two sizes are likely, a 4.7 inch screen and a large 'phablet' like 5.5 inch. These new iPhone's will be impossibly thinner, faster and have even better camera improvements.

However, the latest rumors claimed that the sapphire material might only make an appearance on a new 5.5-inch iPhone model, and not a 4.7-inch model, due to low yield rates expected through the end of the year."
Apple is gearing up for the largest initial production run of iPhone's in history. This is going to be a BIG launch in more ways then one.
"Apple is asking its suppliers to manufacture a massive number of 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhones in anticipation of high consumer demand, reports The Wall Street Journal. The company is seeking between 70 and 80 million units combined of the 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 by December, its largest order to date..."
