We know, we know. Apple's iPhone 6 is going to be absolutely huge.
It's only June, but the discussion of what's undoubtedly one of Apple investors' most significant growth opportunities has already been one of the most widely discussed technology storylines of 2014. And we're likely still months away from the iPhone 6's actual public debut.
