If reports from Chinese media outlets are to be believed, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)‘s much rumored iPhone 6 has enetered its final quality control stage, before the mass production of the device begins. MacRumors, a site dedicated to news and rumors concerning Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) products, revealed this in one of its posts.
According to reports, Foxconn is manufacturing a limited number of these iPhone 6 at its Zhengzhou facility for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), so that it can be ensured that quality control standards are being implemented before the device can go for mass production at various facilities owned by Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s supply partners.
Though there was news last month that mass production of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iPhone 6 has already begun, it is now believed that some production issues may have led to a delay. It is also unclear whether this final testing is being done on both the rumored 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch model or just one of them.
