Early reports have recommended that Apple’s 5.5-inch iPhone 6 was dealing with a delay because of battery problems. A new report says the problem has been fixed and Apple plans to ship 20 million this year. Apple introduced iOS 8 at WWDC 2014 and plans on releasing it to present iOS devices in the autumn.
The new OS will also ship with the company’s upcoming main smartphone, the iPhone 6, which is likely to make its debut in late September to coincide with the release of iOS 8. This year Apple will reportedly present 2 models of iPhone 6; a 4.7-inch model to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 and a 5.5-inch phablet that will go head to head with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and LG G3.
There have been numerous reports that have said that the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6 was dealing with a delay due to battery problems and would be launched after the 4.7-inch iPhone and just in time for the holidays. Part of the battery problem was due to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6’s design; the phablet is reportedly very slim and demands a extremely slim battery.
