apple logoIf the rumors are to be believed, Apple is set to launch two new iPhone this year – a 4.7-inch model and a larger 5.5-inch model. However last we heard, the 5.5-inch model could be facing some delays, hinting that it would either be limited in stock at the start or could even be pushed back to 2015.

That being said, a new report from Economic Daily has suggested that Apple is expected to kick off the production of the 4.7-inch model as soon as next week, meaning that it should be ready in time for launch and in sufficient quantities, assuming that Apple has anticipated the demand for the handset.

The publication goes on to note that as for the 5.5-inch model, that is expected to enter production in the second week of August, which puts it pretty damn close to the iPhone 6’s announcement which has been pegged for September. This suggests that when the iPhone is launched, we could be looking at limited supply at the start.

Rumors of Apple entering into production was fueled back in June where it was reported that Foxconn and Pegatron had started hiring more workers to help assemble the device. Foxconn had also revealed that they will be deploying Foxbots which will help with the assembling process.
