iPhone 6/6 Plus and Apple Watch: the analysts' predictions

Nermin Bajric | Sept. 11, 2014
As expected, analysts were prompt to compile market forecasts in response to Apple's annual revelation event which, this year, saw it unveil its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch.

That said, high purchase prices will increase the importance of contracts, and carriers will no doubt lure customers into 24-month commitments.

While smaller screens (compared to the flagships of Apple's Android competitors) have been the iPhone's forte, Ovum brands the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus' screen sizes — 4.7- and 5.5 inches, respectively — "a calculated move as demand for smartphones with larger screens is growing especially in Asia."

Whether that move shows return on investment (ROI) on Apple's part is another matter; consumers may enjoy larger screens, but neglecting existing users could be damaging.
