Since the start of this year we had hearing about two variants for Apple's iPhone 6 and what were initially rumors turned out to be truth later on. It had already been made clear that botht he variants would be having larger displays; one would sport a 4.7 inch display and the other variant would have a larger 5.5-inch panel. But it seems like the latter one has been catching some trouble lately and we wonder whether it is because of its huge size.
The 5.5-inch iPhone 6 has been delayed further because it is facing issues with some production and yield. Another theory has come into play here and we are not sure how true it is but it claims that a redesigned thinner battery is what that is causing the issue and hence the delay. Apple has directed its efforts towards making the larger iPhone 6 as slim as possible despie of its size and this requried the battery to be thinner. A report has come in from Taiwan’s Commercial Times which has stated that Apple wants to build a battery component which should have a mere depth of 2 mm. This would be a huge acheivement since this is a reduction of around one third compared with your typical power pack.
From whatever information we have gathered fromt he previous reports, the 4.7 inch variant of the iPhone 6 was supposed to make its way into the market by September and the larger 'phablet' version was secured for a December release during the Holiday season. But Taiwan’s Commercial Times says that due to the delays and issues with the battery, it wont be out before 2015.
