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!

Even though this is an iPhone, this release has me excited. This is the one where the marketing spin and BS will likely be the hardest so I eagerly await this release just to see what they come up with.

It's a simple mistake that was made. No need to insult the person who is giving you the news that you addictingly come back for….Go somewhere else. No one is stopping you. Let's see you become an author. I don't see your name up there.

No I'm not an author, but I'm also not getting paid for this either. Have you ever heard of spell check, or even autocorrect if on a mobile device. How about proofreading? But hey, let's not try and improve things here either. Typos? No biggie. Incorrect facts? Could happen to anyone. There was a story a week or so back that was pulled while I was trying to post on it, due to it being factually incorrect, which I was about to point out. And I'm insulting them by stating a fact? OK then.

Dude the egregious grammatical errors coupled with the lack of fact checking is not even worth pointing out anymore. Especially with this particular “journalist."
