Sapphire Glass only for 5.5-inch iPhone 6, iWatch Production Hits Some Snags
Rumours seems to be cropping up everywhere when it comes to the upcoming iPhone 6 and the much anticipated iWatch from Apple. As we draw closer to the imminent launch of the devices the rumours are getting more and more detailed. This time, the rumour mill is spinning with rumours of production problems that Apple’s partners are facing.
Apparently, unlike previous reports, Apple’s supply of Sapphire Glass isn’t enough for their iPhone 6 production and will only be featured on the 5.5-inch version of the device. The 4.7-inch iPhone 6, however, is said to be retaining Corning Gorilla Glass.Whether, the decision to move forward with the different glass component in the two versions will contribute to price is still unknown but we expect that the larger iPhone 6 may cost just that much more compare to its smaller sibling. Apple doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of doubt as it estimates that the iPhone 6 may sell 60 million units.
The iWatch, on the other hand, is facing power issues with the OLED display Apple is planning to use on the device. Apple’s manufacturing partner LG Display is rumoured to be having issues hitting Apple’s condition of zero power draw from the display when in standby or sleep. This doesn’t seem to bode well for the iWatch as Apple has a reputation of delaying the launch of devices over issues like this.
So, do you think the iWatch will face a delay in release? We think that it’ll make the cut. But with all rumours, a bit of salt is needed with information. September is just a few months away and nothing gives clarity like a device launch event.
