Report: 4.7in iPhone 6 production to start next week

Report: 4.7in iPhone 6 production to start next weekReady for your daily Apple iPhone 6 rumour? Of course you are, Jeeves! OPEN WIDE.

The headline here is that the smaller, 4.7in iPhone 6 will supposedly go into production next week, bringing it one significant step closer to being in your sweaty paws. Y’know, assuming you fancy buying one.

The astute reader will immediately demand: “But what about the larger, 5.5in iPhone 6 we’ve been hearing about? What’s happening there?”

Well, the Economic Daily tells 9to5mac tells us that it’ll go into production in the second week of August, which isn’t actually that far away to be fair.

However, it’s enough to give credence to the notion of the 5.5in iPhone 6 arriving slightly later than the 4.7in model.

Oddly, this is nigh on identical to last year’s story, when we were told the iPad mini Retina might slip back to 2014, when in reality it was just a few weeks behind the iPad Air (the pair having launched together in October).

It’s not clear what the problem is exactly with the big chap. Initially, we (the collective rumour rags) believed it might be the crystal display, but consensus now is both models will rock ye olde sapphire.

In any case, only a couple of months till the iPhone 6 becomes a reality, then we can start jawing about the iPhone 7, woohoo!

Maybe they're just getting a head start on the 4.7 inch model as this is likely to be the most popular at launch.
