So far Apple avoided to deliver clear information regarding the next iPhone model. Nevertheless, the market is filled with leaks claiming various information about the specs of the iPhone 6. What we are certain of is that the next generation of iPhone will sport a larger screen. Android devices got larger and larger every year and the users cannot get enough. The latest generation of Android flagship smartphones feature at least a 5 inches display. If the design of the smartphone can be kept indoors easier, the iPhone 6 production implies too many people and resources to be kept a secret.
It became a tradition to have rumory summers in regards to a new iPhone being launched in the fall. This year will be slightly different, because another type of gadget makes its way into the world, the smartwatch. Google already released Android Wear OS and three models featuring it were launched last month. Apple is expected to present the iWatch in the fall together with the iPhone 6. The company assembled a super team around the iWatch so we have high expectations. But Apple is used to it and each time raises the bar even higher.
Allegedly, Apple will release two versions of iPhone 6, a premiere for the company. The smaller one will have a 4.7 inches display and the larger a 5.5 one. Apple intends, as usual, to offer premium devices. A recent video showed a sapphire display to be featured on the next Iphone. Several brutal attempts to damage the display or to break it left no sign on the sapphire component.
iPhone 6 production puts pressure on producers
Apple expects impressive sales, because the latest information is that Foxconn will hire 100.000 workers to meet Apple’s needs. Economic Daily News from Taiwan launched a rumor stating that iPhone 6 production will start in the third week of July, according to Reuters. Macrumors.com says that Foxconn will deploy 10.000 robots to help employees assemble the devices by taking over less intensive tasks such as screw tightening.
The larger 5.5 inches iPhone 6 version is said to start a month later. The reasons are unknown. If true, it might translate in having the larger version available at a later time in the fall. So the iPhone 6 production might suffer some drawbacks.
Without Apple confirming rumors, we cannot confirm if both versions will feature sapphire displays. According to 9to5mac, sources claim that only the 5.5 inches might be equipped with the new display. iPhone 6 will probably have a slim design, an A8 processor and a better camera with 13 MP capacity.
