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!
