According to a recent report coming from the Taiwanese media (or Taiwan’s “Commercial Times” to be exact), Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 6 (which has been referred to as the “iPhone Air“) might not be ready for the masses by the end of 2014. Supposedly, Apple’s biggest challenge is to create a very thin device, and the main issue is that the battery cell suppliers are currently unable to meet the Cupertino giant’s demands.
These production “issues” that the media is writing that Apple has every year, is usually not an issue at all. Apple has always managed to handle the production well and in time anyways. So I take those rumors with a grain of salt, but the interesting thing with this is the thinness. Such a thin battery (2mm), will make the large 5.5-inch iPhone 6 (or iPhone Air that I believe it will be called) incredibly thin, but still with a great battery life. Exactly how they did with the iPad Air in 2013.
I like the name: iPhone Air. It sounds very good when you say it. It will be a very exciting Apple year!
