Apple's iPhone 6 Will Shatter Records With This Key Innovation

With tech giant Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) Worldwide Developers Conference fading quickly in the rearview mirror, tech enthusiasts and investors now have a vastly improved idea about many of the key areas of emphasis Apple will focus on as it ramps its second-half product launch cycle in the months ahead.

As Apple rolls out likely new products, such as the iWatch or even more far-flung ideas including a mobile payments offering, Apple's iPhone 6 will most likely remain the financial engine that fuels Apple's stock price.

More screens, more profits
Perhaps the most talked about rumor surrounding Apple's iPhone 6 will be larger screen sizes, following the price segmentation Apple introduced with the iPhone 5s and 5c last year.

Although many of us in developed markets might scratch our heads at the idea of buying a larger, probably 5.5-inch iPhone, the move could very well be one of the more shrewd financial decisions of late. Judging by a series of recent numbers released by Kantar Research, Apple would be powerfully tapping into the trend of larger screen sizes that are sweeping the smartphone world, which would likely be a bigger boon to shareholders than an iWatch. In the video below, tech and telecom specialist Andrew Tonner examines some of this iPhone 6 data in greater details and explains what it could mean for Apple investors everywhere.

A better way to play Apple's next multi-billion dollar profit machine
Apple recently recruited a secret-development "dream team" to guarantee its newest smart device was kept hidden from the public for as long as possible. But the secret is out, and some early viewers are claiming its everyday impact could trump the iPod, iPhone, and the iPad. In fact, ABI Research predicts 485 million of this type of device will be sold per year. But one small company makes Apple's gadget possible. And its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors. To be one of them, and see Apple's newest smart gizmo, just click here!

    No, dont think so. Apple is and has been old news since the death of steve jobs. Tim Cook is not taking or pushing this company anywhere. And any innovation is coming from Android phones, leaving one to question, why invest in APPLE when they have there focus is on suing instead of innovating. Samsung, HTC, LG, and even Motorola, have developed and innovated far quicker and better phones than APPLE and its latest iteration.

    Apple is slowly loosing market share and has been since Android was introduced and Android phone makers enhanced or went beyond in innovation and have been using larger screen sized for quite some time now. The only IPHONE i had was a 3GS, and hated it. After the contract was up on ATT, I looked at windows and android phones. I can say, since that day, I have had nothing but ANDROID. Samsung, HTC, and LG. I would never invest in APPLE or take advice from someone that owns shares in APPLE.

    Unless I missed something, the article makes no mention about this key innovation. What is the key innovation that will make the iPhone 6 shatter records?

    Apple thinks of everything! Now it a bigger size screen. How about that? And two sizes too. It just amazing what Apple comes up with to shake up the competition. Now everyone will have to come up with a bigger size just to catch up! Apple is always on the cutting edge on their iPhones. Cannot wait to get the two different sizes. You have to have two so that you can switch off between big and bigger!

    I think the innovation they are talking about is the screen size. Android has had that for years but since Apple is doing it, it's called innovation.

    Apple can do no wrong in the eyes of some...

    Yeah, you would have been an idiot to buy Apple when the Motley Fool officially recommended the stock years ago. Too funny.

    "Apple desperately need larger screen sizes, a bandwaggon that swept the rest of the smartphone world years ago, to prevent them falling further behind their competition"

    Oh yeah, it's not an innovation when you're the last to do it - just the first.

    The large screen iphone will "shatter all records" because its what their customers have been waiting for for years.

    Apple, still make phones with 3.5" screens and their largest is 4" why? Profit margin. Apple sold small cheap phones at big prices for years and made a killing off their followers.

    If Apple bring out a large screen (~5") phone it'll also shatter the price record. But the Apple congregation seem to see high prices & hige profit margins as a virtue - "look it's so shiny and expensive", "Apple make so much money they're so smart". Lol fools.

    Yes, that's their technique; make products that looks more expensive that what they really are so they can make more profit on them.

    Innovation... NONE!

    The iphone 6 will be a great upgrade for those current iphone users that are not smart enough to leave apple.

    I'm going to bet that AAPL will be over $100 a share well before year end. With 66% of all companies cell phone profits, new products, improved iPhone and who really knows what else I'm going to stick with them. I've had the stock since 2001 at an average of $18 a share. Seen it down for sure but since 2001 it's been a pretty good investment. Just no comparison between Apple and android good products, great service, informed employees, and no fragmation which is a continuing and increasing problem for the Android system.
