Foxconn reportedly adds workers to build the Apple iPhone 6c, slated for release in November?
The latest rumor in the Apple iPhone 6c saga says that contract manufacturer Foxconn has added workers to its assembly lines to prepare for the production of the 4-inch iPhone model. The rumor also states that the iPhone 6c will be released in November. That contradicts a report from Evan Blass, who earlier this month said that the Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus and Apple iPhone 6c would all "arrive" at the same time.

Recently, a Foxconn insider said that the company had received a shipment of 4-inch screens that were earmarked for the iPhone 6c. Last month, a report from brokerage house Jefferies claimed that the iPhone 6c would feature a metal build, unlike the plastic casing employed for the Apple iPhone 5c. The model is still expected to carry a more affordable price tag.
 
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s Plus on September 9th. Both models are expected to offer the Force Touch feature that Apple uses on its smartwatch. Since the iPhone 6c is rumored to be cheaper than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, eliminating Force Touch from the model would be one way that Apple could keep the price down.

As usual with a report of this kind, we suggest that you take it with that proverbial grain of salt.

Thanks for the tip!
