According to a recent report, one of Apple’s suppliers, Pegatron will build around 15 percent of the iPhone 6 for Apple, the company will be focusing on the 4.7 inch version of the iPhone 6.
The company will build a total of 50 million iPhones for Apple this year, and the 50 million includes the new 4.7 inch iPhone 6, the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 4S.
Previously there had been rumors that Pegatron would end up with around 50 percent of all iPhone 6 orders from Apple, so the 15 percent they will make is considerably lower than expected.
We suspect that Apple’s other manufacturing partner, Foxconn, will end up making the majority of the iPhone 6 handsets for Apple.
Pegatron are currently making the iPhone 5C for Apple, last year production of the iPhone 5C was moved to Pegatron, who are now the sole producer of the handset.
The 4.7 inch iPhone 6 is expected to launch in September, Apple are also making a larger version of the device which is said to come with a 5.5 inch display, this version will launch before the holiday shopping season, probably some time in November.
There have been various rumors about the iPhone 6 over the last few months, what we do know about the handset is that it will be the first Apple device to use Apple’s next generation 64-bit mobile processor, the Apple A8.
The device may also come with a sapphire glass display, although there have been report that Apple may decide to just use sapphire glass in the iWatch and not the iPhone 6 due to cost issues.
As soon as we get some more information about the new iPhone 6, including some actual photos of the handset, and some more specifications, we will let you guys know.
