Investors awaiting the next pop in their shares of Apple Inc. (AAPL) may be just months away from that boost. Apple disclosed that it will unveil the next generation of its signature iPhone line in August instead of September, as industry watchers had assumed. Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 6 at the end of the summer, with its 4.7-inch screen, will precede the September release of the smartphone’s model sporting a 5.5-5.6-inch screen. Reports are that 80 million iPhone 6 devices will be produced this year to satisfy demand. From the time AAPL announced the release of its iPhone 5 on July 30, 2012, to the actual release in September, shares popped more than 10 percent, or more than $50 each. Is that in the cards this time, or is a larger jump in the works? Well, with the company rushing delivery a month earlier, there could be more good news ahead.
