Rumours are circulating that the impending and highly anticipated Apple iPhone 6 release date could be delayed due to issues being experienced with manufacturing the touch screen and case.
A new report from KGI Securities has recently emerged revealing that the iPhone 6 release date may be delayed due to the issues being experienced during the iPhone’s production.
KGI Securities analyst Kuo Ming-Ji reports that both the Apple 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 smartphones might be subject to delays, with Apple having to push back the release date of the new highly anticipated next generation iPhone 6 until the issues have been corrected.
The issues surround the manufacture of the iPhone 6 touchscreen and chassis have been rumoured before and its thought that Apple’s supply chain may have failed to solve the issues correctly when they were first discovered a few months ago.
As you would expect nothing has been confined by Apple but the company is expected to launch their new 4.7 and larger 5.5 inch iPhone 6 smartphones sometime towards the end of this year. It was also reported yesterday that the smaller version might be equipped with a less powerful processor than the 5.5 inch iPhone 6 device, but again this is speculation at the current time.
The new iPhone 6 smartphones will come supplied running iOS 8, together with a new 64-bit Apple A8 processor and enhanced TouchID fingerprint sensor providing more accuracy that on previous versions. The official iPhone 6 release date is thought to be October 14th 2014 for the 4.7 inch version with the larger 5.5 inch phone being released shortly afterwards. As soon as more information is announced or leaked we will keep you updated as always.
