Apple is always in the news, and that's primarily for its new iPhone offerings every year. And this year is no different with the new iPhone 6 already making rounds on the web for quite some time. Now, keeping up with the trend, there's more new information to follow up on for the iPhone 6.
According to reports, Apple is said to be weeks away from starting production on the iPhone 6. The new Apple made device is said to finally start to be made available in Q2 this year.
Revealed first via a Commercial Times report, which Reuters later translated, Apple's manufacturing partner Pegatron is said to be opening up a new factory and is currently recruiting workers to build the iPhone 6, according to the report.
It is now expected that the development and production of the device will begin in the second quarter, the newspaper said while citing unnamed sources.
However, the new report related to the same hasn't mentioned anything about the number of units that will be manufactured at the new facility in Kunshan, on the outskirts of Shanghai. Also, a number on how many workers will be recruited for the manufacturing and production operations is yet to be specified.
Apart from Pegatron, Reuters states, "fellow Taiwanese contract assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd would be the other primary manufacturer of the new phone, Commercial Times said."
As of now, rumor has it that the upcoming iPhone 6 may feature a design that's quite similar to the existing iPod Nano. Apple is also rumored to release the iPhone 6 in September, followed by the device's retail availability in November.
