Some reports hinted that Apple is having battery issues with the upcoming iPhone 6. The Cupertino giant wants to make sure the design is slim and thin, but the suppliers were having a hard figuring out how to meet the demands of the supplier.
According to a new report surfacing from Taiwanese shores, Apple has apparently solved the problem. Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reports Apple has contracted Taiwan’s Simplo Technologies who have reportedly solved the battery issue.
Simplo is one of the two suppliers for the upcoming iPhone 6, with the second one being Desay. The latter is yet to solve this issue, but the report mentions Simplo has already provided Apple with a flexible unit meeting the demands of the company.
Apple is rumored to be working on two new iPhone 6 models, one with a 4.7-inch display while the second one carries 5.5-inch form factor. The above report doesn’t mention if the bottleneck was with the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch, but it’s likely that it was present in both versions since both are rumored to come with a similar thickness.
The upcoming iPhone 6 is also rumored to come with an A8 processor, Touch ID, NFC, a 1,900 mAh battery, and should launch with iOS 8 as its operating system. Rumors suggest Apple will unveil the device in September, but it could be only for the 4.7-inch model. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities hinted the 5.5-inch model could get delayed, as long as 2015 due to some production issues.
