Apple iPhone 6 enters mass production

As Apple eyeing to launch its flagship smartphone Apple iPhone 6, as new report recons that company is really considering to increase the size of the smartphone.

The iPhone 6 is one of the highly anticipated device of the year, which is schedule to come late in this year. The company is eyeing to launch two models of iPhone 6 apparently 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches.

According to Wall Street Journal, Apple may be gearing up for “its largest initial production run” ever with the forthcoming iPhone 6, an increase largely attributed to the smartphone being available in dual screen sizes.

According to report, company last year sold about 50 million units of iPhone 5S and 60 million unites of iPhone 5C respectively.

According to unnamed “people familiar with the matter,” Cupertino is calling for suppliers to pump out between 70 million and 80 million handsets, which are expected to be available in both 4.7- and 5.5-inch models.

Supply chain insiders claim the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 could be in short supply at launch due to Apple’s use of sapphire crystal displays instead of glass and more complicated in-cell technology, which integrates sensors into the screen for a thinner, lighter handset.

Apple will be joining the so-called phablet craze somewhat late in the game, but analysts have been beating the drum for months in advance of what is believed to be pent-up demand for larger iPhones.

Expected to launch by mid-September, the iPhone 6 will reportedly feature “metal cases similar to the iPhone 5S,” with recent leaks revealing more rounded edges matching the iPad Air and iPad mini 2 with Retina Display.
