5.5-inch device still missing from most leaks
Foxconn will handle about 70 percent of 4.7-inch iPhone 6 production in 2015, and is expected to start shipping units to Apple as soon as July of this year, claims Digitimes. The site adds that Apple's 5.5-inch iPhone will enter production a month later. In April, a similar report suggested that the 5.5-inch model would only start manufacturing in September.
Digitimes states that Pegatron will handle the remaining 30 percent of 4.7-inch units. Production of an existing, unspecified 4-inch iPhone will allegedly be shifted over to Wistron.
The 5.5-inch iPhone has been largely absent from recent leaks, despite having been mentioned earlier by sources for high-profile publications like the Wall Street Journal. If production has been delayed though, as implied by several reports, it stands to reason that there would be fewer parts and details in circulation.
