It’s been reported that the mass production of Apple’s upcoming 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has begun to prepare for the device’s expected reveal in September and launch later this year. It’s also been reported that the larger 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 as well as the next generation of iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina models are scheduled for mass production sometime in September.
While it’s been reported that the smaller iPhone 6 will be revealed and launched this year, it is unknown when Apple plans to reveal, launch, and roll out the larger of the two new iPhone with some reports claiming that Apple has pushed back the release of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to as late as early 2015. It was rumored that the company decided to push back the launch of the larger iPhone to not only avoid competition between the two models but also due to prioritizing the company’s other devices in line for the rest of the year.
“The different timetables have been set as Apple does not want to repeat the mistake it made in 2013 when it launched the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c simultaneously,” said a source on the release discrepancy among the two new iPhones.
On the other hand, the new iPads are expected to be revealed in an October event along with the iWatch, Apple’s first wearable device, as well as a new MacBook, a 4K desktop, and Apple latest’s operating system, OS X
Yosemite, which entered a public beta yesterday. The report did not mention when Apple is scheduling to roll out the new iPads.
Anticipation is high for the new Apple products as important personnel in the company have gone out and said that the company will enter new product categories with a device lineup that is the best it has had in 25 years.
