  • Apple Reportedly Resolves iPhone 6 Battery Issue, Rumored to Ship 20M Units in 2014

    Recent rumors surrounding Apple’s iPhone 6 have been pointing to two models for the device: a 4.7-inch version set to launch later this year and a larger 5.5-inch version for late 2014 or early 2015. Although Apple previously released the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at the same time last year, reports have indicated that that issues with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 battery life and display technology will force the company to launch both phones at separate times later this year.

    A recent report from the Chinese site, Laoyaoba, claims that Apple has solved its battery issues with the 5.5-inch iPhone 6, as the company will partner with Chinese manufacturing company Sunwoda Electronics to manufacture 20 million batteries for the device. Apple’s main battery supplier, Dynapak, will also help with the production, however the Taiwanese-based company has reportedly struggled to keep up with demand. The report also noted that Apple is aiming to build 20 million 5.5-inch iPhone 6 units by the end of this year, which follows a rumor last month that stated the company’s desire to build iPhone 6 units would be of the smaller 4.70inch version, indicating that the larger version will be hard to find until supplies improve later next year.

    In addition to having a larger screen, Apple’s iPhone 6 is expected to include a thinner profile, a faster A8 processor, and an improved camera in the form of optical or electronic image stabilization. The Cupertino California company has also included an option for developers to size apps for devices referred to as “Resizable iPhones” in its release of XCode 6 earlier today, which likely further indicates that iPhones with larger displays are coming.

      Definitely don't see them doing 5.5 this time.. And 2 at one release is so "non-Apple".. The 5C was just replacing the 5.. It wasn't really a new product at all except for the goofy colored plastic backs. Inside was just a 5.
