Apple manufacturing partners ready for iPhone 6 production?

Rumors are still on a rise when it comes to the launch of a next-generation iPhone 6 this June at WWDC. We’ve heard continuous rumors that the company may launch as many as two iPhones this summer, and we’ve even seen leaks that point to its design. Obviously the last piece left in the puzzle is for Apple to actually start manufacturing the iPhone 6 a couple of months early in order to meet demand, and that may also be ready.

Commercial Times is reporting that Pegatron is ready to begin production of the iPhone 6 in its new Kunshan, China plant. Pegatron was the partner in-charge of the iPhone 5c manufacturing last year, and given the fact that it hasn’t been busy building it lately (due to some excess inventory), it makes sense for it to be the first partner that’s ready to begin.

The report does mention that production won’t begin until Q2/2014, which is just a couple of weeks away. It would give Apple almost three months of manufacturing time before the iPhone 6 is ready for its rumored launch. Obviously none of this is set in stone, and the rumors could just remain that way.
