Apple will reportedly ship out its iPhone 6 devices starting in August, according to International Business Times.

Apple is expected to announce its iPhone 6 the first or second week of September, before releasing it later on in the month.

Usually Apple waits to release its new smartphone on a Friday, which means the iPhone 6 could become available for purchase on September 12th, 19th, or 26th.

Apple released its iPhone 5 nine days after it was unveiled, and its iPhone 5S and 5C were both released nine days after debuting, according to Reuters.

Apple has not confirmed yet when it will release its new 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch devices, though the larger one will most likely come towards the end of 2014 or the beginning of 2015.

Rumors have circulated that the 5.5-inch device might be delayed due to production issues.

Both devices will most likely come with a scratch-free sapphire crystal glass screen, according to MacRumors. The devices are expected to be powered by a 20-nanometer A8 chip and come with an 8MP camera with a number of new upgrades, like flash and Optical Image Stabilization.

Both devices are expected to run on iOS 8.

The smaller iPhone is expected to come with a 1920x1080p (440ppi) resolution, while the larger device may feature a 2272×1280 (510ppi) resolution, according to multiple media outlets.

A new iOS 8 operating system that the next iPhone will utilize debuted at Apple's 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference earlier this year.
