4.7-inch iPhone 6 production begins in July, 5.5-inch phablet in September?
Rumors couldn’t be more conflicting when it comes to Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6. While we continue to hear consistencies in the fact that there are two iPhone models in the works, a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and a 5.5-inch phablet, we keep finding inconsistencies in the dates. We’ve heard past rumors of the 4.7-inch model being ready for the market after WWDC, but new reports claim otherwise.
New reports from Japanese sources claim that the two rumored iPhone 6 models will be launched separately, and definitely not in time for WWDC. Apparently the 4.7-inch model will be launched first, but the rumor claims that mass production will begin until July, so it does seem like if we’ll see a launch until the fall. On the other hand, the 5.5-inch phablet model that’s being rumored will apparently begin mass production until September, so this device will definitely be launched until late this year if the rumors are true.
We do know that Apple wants to experiment with bigger iPhones given all the documentation of the Apple vs. Samsung trial. It’s just a matter of time before we actually see one of these models reach the market, though it’s hard to predict if it’ll be smart for Apple to launch them separately.
