Ming-Chi Kuo says mass production of the Apple iPhone 6s has been delayed one to two weeks
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is known for his extremely accurate forecasts when it comes to Apple. According to Kuo, mass production of the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus have been delayed by one to two weeks. The analyst says that orders for the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus have been cut in order to allow the new models to start rolling off the assembly line. With the delay, the new phones will start mass production late this month.

Kuo says that Foxconn will be assembling 60% of iPhone 6s units, with the balance put together by Pegatron. However, the analyst says that every single iPhone 6s Plus will roll off the Foxconn assembly line. He adds that even with the cut back in iPhone 6 production and the delay, Foxconn workers toiling in the Zhengzhow plant will have to schedule overtime.

The good news from Kuo is that despite the delay in mass production, there won't be any changes made to the dates when Apple introduces and then launches the new phones. The unveiling is rumored to be taking place at an event to be held on September 11th and the phones will be released on September 18th.

The new Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus are expected to be made of Series 7000 aluminum, already used on the Apple Watch, to prevent bending. In addition, we should see a 12MP camera replace the 8MP rear-facing snapper, and 2GB of DDR4 RAM is said to be on board. And of course, Force Touch from the Apple Watch is supposed to be this year's killer new feature.

Thanks for the tip!

This news is repeated once in every year. Now soon we will see another news that Foxconn hired another 1,00,000 employees to cope up iPhone's demand.

Honesty the best part about their presentation is the spin and BS. It's always fun to watch them reinvent something, usually for the worse these days. Also the applause on those things are hilarious, like they paid a bunch of fanboys to clap on everything from a new color to the renaming of devices (iPad air, woooo).

There's going to be 37 more articles about this from now till launch. We will also see "Shortage of screens have caused a delay in production" or " Shortage on camera sensors will cause apple to only make 10million at launch".......Stop it PA just stop it. We know apple will have millions of iPhones ready for launch.

How can there be a one to two week delay and there is no release date? Even if it was a date, that type of delay is not even worth mentioning.

I would put money on it. With the new track pad feature, it would be cool!

Such news are never true. This is an old strategy to weaken the competition. Such news create an atmosphere for the competition to make them not to try harder.

This seemingly happens every damn year, and the Device(s) launch on time every year, like clockwork. Apple give this phone 2015, even 2014 specs, to power all the Android/touchwiz (I mean) iOS 9 features, and I'll buy it. Otherwise my 6 plus stays alongside the N5, or Edge Plus.
