FINALLY! The iPhone 6 News You’ve Been Waiting for…
We’ve waited and we’ve waited and we’ve Googled “iPhone 6 updates” and we (if you’re like the editor typing this out right now) have bitten the bullet and said oh, forget waiting for that darn iPhone 6 announcement, I’m just going to upgrade to the 5s and be totally fine with it. But, guys, it’s finally here. Apple has reportedly scheduled a media event for Tuesday September 9 and you know what that means, folks: It’s iPhone 6 reveal time.
September may be the back to school signal for all of you buying color-coordinated binders and rulers for your kiddies (and back to, um, fall shopping for the rest of us), but Apple-holics know that big announcements come before the leaves start to change. Apple has not confirmed this news but we may or may not have sent a “cancel all my meetings!” email to our coworkers with that date dibbed. A September 9 reveal would be in line with suspicions of an October release date, even if rumors about the model with the bigger screen getting delayed are true.
Forgot what the iPhone 6 has in store for us? Check out the below roundup of rumors and exciting preview videos that will whet your appetite. No drooling though, unless you have a Lifeproof case on that newly bought (shh, don’t remind me) 5s.
– The iPhone 6 will actually be TWO phones and nine other rumors we’re sinking our teeth into.
– Here’s what happens when you stab the (supposed) iPhone 6 screen.
– It will feature the only camera you’ll ever need.
– Your next phone will be your last destination for your health and fitness data if Apple has anything to do with it.
-It’s ready to get cozy in your smart home, too!
This is one Apple rumor that we’ve known was going to turn into a reality faster than you can say “Craig Federighi hair selfie” but still, it’s good to have a date to plan for. WWDC 2015 just seemed so far away…
Are you excited for the iPhone 6? Are you planning your place in line for it as we speak or are you over it already? Share your thoughts below!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
