Apple iPhone 6 undergoing Product Validation Testing; next up is mass production

Apple iPhone 6 undergoing Product Validation Testing; next up is mass production
A published report cites sources inside Foxconn, as stating that the Apple iPhone 6 is currently undergoing Product Validating Testing (PVT). During this stage, the assembly line at Foxconn is run at full-speed to make sure that everything is running smoothly. For this process, a small number of Apple iPhone 6 units will be produced. If necessary, adjustments to the assembly line will be made.

Once the PVT is completed, the iPhone 6 enters into mass production. Even though we have heard earlier rumors that the phone was undergoing mass production, to the untrained eye, what might have looked like iPhones rolling off the assembly line full tilt, might actually have been the testing phase.

Considering that one of the sources of the story, Xiang Ligang, is the CEO of a publication which promotes development of China’s communication and information industry, and that he also was a professor at Beijing University, we would imagine that he would know the difference between test runs and full-blown production from an assembly line.

Surely the machines at Foxconn need to be humming with a September 9th unveiling of the Apple iPhone 4.7 expected, followed not too long afterward with the actual launch of the phone.,

Thanks for the tip!
