iPhone 6: Release Date 2014, Price, Specs, Apple Manufacturing Adding 100,000 Workers to Meet Deadlines (VIDEO)
Apple has pushed manufacturing into high gear for the release of the highly anticipated iPhone 6. The Foxconn manufacturer out of Taiwan has hired thousands of extra workers to keep with the demand for the new 4.7 and 5.5 inch smartphones. Some reports say up to 100,000 extra staff has been brought on to meet deadlines. Another key company that Apple uses, Pegatron, has also reportedly added 10,000 staff as well.
Apple is looking to impress and push innovation with the iPhone 6 and their full new lineup of devices in 2014. One way the california based tech company is planning to use Sapphire glass for the iPhone 6, which they consider "virtually scratch free" and "nearly indestructible."
Apple has even built a new factory in Arizona that is being used to manufacture the sapphire glass which was confirmed by CEO Tim Cook. Sapphire is currently only used in the iPhone 5s's Touch ID Home button and the cover of the iPhone's rear-facing camera. But with Apple being serious enough to open an entire factory to make the material, it's a safe bet that they have bigger future plans for the use of the Sapphire.
The iPhone 6 could raise the price by as much as $100 to cover a larger screen, new glass covering the front and new, more impressive, materials used in construction. The iPhone 5S is currently $649-849 for contract free phones depending on storage space and $199-399 with a new 2 year-contract.
The iPhone 6 will come with atleast 64 bit architecture as A8 processor. The iPhone 6 will also comes with next extended version of iOS 8. It will have a 4.7 inch screen and possibily a 5.5 inches screen as well with 2K resolution based screen and protected by Sapphire glass covering. The iPhone 6 may not increase the MP, leaving it at 8MP. But there are expected to at least be subtle improvements to please the user.
The Apple iPhone 6 will come with upp to 128GB internal storage or expandable storage, heart rate EarPods, a NFC chip, wireless charging compatibility with Apple's rumoured iWatch and Sapphire glass and LiquidMetal design. Reports are the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 will be 66mm wide and 7.0mm thick (the 5S is 58.6 x 7.6mm).
