Most tech fans believe that Apple will introduce their next-gen iPhone at the usual time in September, with the release happening late in the same month. So it’s not a surprise that we have a new rumor which says that the iPhone 6 will start mass production sometime in the very near future.
According to Economic Daily News, the 4.7 inch iPhone 6’s mass production will begin next week, while the 5.5 inch iPhone will start to be mass produced only in the second week of August. And reportedly Foxconn and Pegatron have plans to hire extra workers for dealing with the iPhone production, while Foxconn is also thinking about adding extra assembly line robots.
We have heard a rumor before that the 4.7 inch version will be released on the 25th of September, though September 19 has also been suggested. But many believe that the phablet version could be delayed due to production issues.
About what we know so far, the iPhone 6, besides coming with a larger display, is expected to come with a thinner design, an A8 processor, and an improved camera (probably a 13MP one). Meanwhile, the iPhablet is thought to feature optical image stabilization, greater storage capacity, and a price increase of $100.
