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.

Apple's forthcoming iPhone 6 may sport 1 GB of RAM, according to a leaked schematic shared by Chinese Apple repair firm GeekBar (Google Translate, via G for Games). The chart is said to come from an internal supply chain source, however it is unknown if the schematic is intended for the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6. If the chart is indeed legitimate, the iPhone 6 would join the iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 5c in sporting 1 GB of RAM. That amount of RAM would also be below ...

Good morning! Welcome to the work week! It's going to be clear and sunny today in New York. Let's look at the tech news you need to know: Apple might name the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 the iPhone 6L. It's based on an unsubstantiated rumor from an Asian Apple site, so treat it skeptically, but the name makes some sense. Amazon is taking a less data-driven approach to its new original TV shows. It is trying to get proven talent to tell good stories. Activist sha ... Source: The Business Insider

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
