iPhone 6 Battery Issues Resolved

Apple is said to be working on two new versions of its next-gen iPhone. And the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model is under rapid development for launch this fall. However, almost all earlier reports claimed that Apple is facing problems in making ultra-thin batteries for its "phablet" sized iPhone 6 smart phone.

The most prominent features speculated till now include an "A8" processor, lighter and thinner battery, and a sapphire-covered display.  The alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 smart phone production is said to be hindered due to battery manufacturing issues.  And since the past months, reports are surfacing that Apple's larger iPhone 6 model might get delayed from its original fall launch.

The iPhone 6 reportedly requires a much thinner battery than the current version of iPhone.  An iPhone 6 battery is said to be less than 2 millimeters in height. A really thin one is required for an iPhone.  But Apple's current manufacturing partners Samsung and LG have not been able to make such thin batteries as required for a larger iPhone 6 version.

However, a recent report from Taiwan's Economic Daily News (via AppleInsider) reveals that Apple has resolved these issues by taking on board a new manufacturing partner in Taiwan. Simplo Technologies is the new manufacturing partner for Apple and it is based in Hsin Chu, Taiwan. The firm is said to be able to manufacture as thin and flexible batteries as are required by Apple for its alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 smart phone. 

Apple expected to launch its two new iPhone 6 versions, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch, this fall.  But as earlier reports suggest, battery issues can delay the larger iPhone 6 launch. And a recent report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that the larger iPhone 6 version is also facing problems with the manufacturing of its metal casing.
