Production On Apple’s iPhone 6 Rumored To Begin In July

Production On Apple's iPhone 6 Rumored To Begin In July(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – A new report about Apple’s new iPhones claims that suppliers in China will begin mass production starting in July.

According to a report from Bloomberg, citing unnamed sources familiar with the plan, Apple will launch two versions of the device, a 4.7-inch and another at 5.5-inches.

“Production of the 5.5-inch model is more complicated than the smaller version, resulting in lower production efficiency that must be overcome before manufacturing volume can be increased,” says the report.

The sources claim the devices will be “rounder and thinner than previous models” with bigger curved glass displays and enhanced sensors that are able to detect different pressure levels.

Other rumored features of the iPhone 6 include a scratch resistant sapphire glass display, wireless charging, 3D graphics, NFC, and the new A8 processor.

Last month Apple Insider, citing the Commercial Times, reported that Pegatron, one of the two major Apple suppliers in Asia, would start production of the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in quarter two at its new plant in Kunshan.

Both models are expected to be released this September.
