iphone6-leak-7According to the rumors, Apple is expected to release a 4.7-inch iPhone and a 5.5-inch iPhone later this year. The rumors also claimed that both devices would be launched at separate times and that the 5.5-inch model could be short on supply at launch. Well according to a report from Bloomberg, at least one of those rumors could be true.

The report claims that production for both phones are expected to kick off in July. This follows a recent rumor suggesting that both Foxconn and Pegatron, Apple’s assemblers for all things iOS, have begun a hiring spree that would get both companies up to speed and capacity for production. Bloomberg claims that production in July means that both devices will be on track for a simultaneous launch and release.

However they do note that production of the 5.5-inch model is allegedly more complicated than that of the 4.7-inch model, which basically seems to suggest that availability of the 5.5-inch model could be constrained at the start. Bloomberg did not mention anything about the possibility that the 5.5-inch model could cost $100 more.

In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but for those who are eyeing the 5.5-inch model, looks like you could be in luck, assuming you move fast enough to grab yourself one before they are sold out!
