5.5-inch iPhone 6, new iPad mini & iPad Air production pushed back to September [Rumor]

iPhone 6

New reports from Taiwanese media suggest that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 might be the only iPhone model we see this fall. The report, from UDN, states that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 model has yet to enter production and is being pushed back until September casting doubt over it being ready to launch at Apple’s expected September media event.

We’ve previously heard that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will enter production this month with the larger version beginning in August, however, this new report suggest that production might begin later still. The UDN report does not state whether the decision is deliberate on Apple’s part or if it has been forced out of manufacturing problems.

The report goes on to state that initial production capacity of the iPhone 6 will be limited but could increase by as much as 85 percent in Q4 – potentially aided by Foxconn’s “Foxbots” on the production line.

The same Taiwanese report shares some information about future iPad models. It is suggested that the next generation iPad Air and iPad mini will also enter production in September. We have heard relatively little about the next version of Apple’s tablet lines apart from some hardware features rumored earlier, mockups of the 2nd-gen iPad Air and the expectancy that both new iPads will include Apple’s fingerprint scanner, Touch ID.

Apple execs have previously stated that the company has its best product pipeline in years. The question is, when will we get to see these new products?

    The terrorists we are facing down in Azania – S.A.,
    also think they can bomb and shoot their way into
    getting the country to split in two
    then form their own state.
    So it was for the Boeremag who thought they could bomb Nelson Mandela,
    start a race war and drive all “non Whites” out of the country.
    They were jailed in December for this attempt,
    yet Facebook insists on hosting a support page for these race terrorists.

    With the new iPhone 6 coming out I better sell my old iPhone 6 before the value of it drops. I usually search 1-13 different sites to find the best offer, but I just found this company that compares all the buyback companies in one spot, it’s called RecomHub.

    It’s like Kayak but for electronic devices that show you all the offers in one spot.
