iPhone 6 could start mass production next week, iPhablet in August
At this point, it seems reasonable to assume that, despite various rumors, Apple will be announcing the next iPhone at the usual time in September. If the release is going to be late in September, as has been the standard time, it shouldn't be too surprising that there is a new rumor saying that the iPhone 6 will begin mass production next week. The more interesting idea comes in reference to the iPhablet.

The report from the Economic Daily News says that, while the iPhone 6 will begin mass production next week, the 5.5-inch iPhone will not begin mass production until the second week of August. Foxconn and Pegatron are even reportedly getting ready to hire extra workers to handle the added stress of producing iPhones, and Foxconn is even planning to add extra robots to its assembly lines. The question still remains when the devices will be released. 

A couple days ago, we heard that component makers were having trouble with the new extra-thin iPhone parts. But, we've seen enough leaks of the iPhone 6 to believe that it will go on sale in late September until we hear differently. Still, It's hard to say what is happening with the 5.5-inch iPhone. The rumored mass production start is still early enough for the device to be released before the holidays. But, there are reasons to be a bit doubtful on that, including rumors of delays, and the fact that we've seen no leaks, which is extremely odd for a device that could be released so soon.

This must be great news for the iFans who have been reverently and patiently waiting in their tents, camped outside of Apple stores everywhere.

Salvation is getting closer. They can feel it now.

I see this as a social gathering for some (people camp out for movies, games, and consoles - some enjoy having it first, se enjoy chilling with their piers). And for some a quick cash opportunity, since unlike any other phone, new release iPhones sell for double, tripple, and sometimes more then that. But I do not expect you to understand, you haven't left your mothers basement in a while - your idea of social event is chatting on some gaming forum. (See anyone can shove their view about others).

Give it a rest, no one here tells u what to do with your free time, but if it was up to me - I'd go find a job and move out of my moms house at your age.

Not for the ones who are waiting for the iP6XL…. They may have to wait until later in the year (October/November). Worst case, they have to wait until 2015.

Long time to be waiting for a cherished iToy when competitors are already shipping their competitive offerings.
