Taiwanese supplier Pegatron handed 50% of Apple's gargantuan 2014 iPhone 6 orders
DigiTimes reported that Pegatron, one of Apple's chief Eastern partners, has risen to the challenge of handling a whopping 50% of Apple's 4.7-inch iPhone 6 orders for 2014, which could be as high as 50 million devices shipping this fall and winter. The rest of the 50 million order will be confided to long-time Apple partner Foxconn. The manufacturing giant has already hired as much as 100,000 new workers to meet the humongous production quota of the iPhone 6, and there are rumors that human workers will be aided by as many as 10 000 "Foxbots" who are in their final testing stages.

Meanwhile, the alleged 5.5-inch iPhone 6 variant is nowhere to be found in the stream of reports and leaks, which is extremely odd for a new iPhone. It will be a shocking surprise if Apple CEO Tim Cook pulls out a phablet-sized iPhone 6 at his September keynote. In comparison, the 4.7-inch variant has been leaking at large in the past two months, and it has even been "replicated" by enterprising Chinese "clone artist" vendors such as Goophone. Aside from a larger display, the real iPhone 6 is expected to introduce a thinner chassis with rounded angles for a comfortable hold in the hand, along with a new A8 64-bit processor and the new iOS 8. It's safe to say that the iPhone 6 will be the biggest and most important update the iPhone has received since the iPhone 4 introduced a stunning design and a Retina display that hold up to this day.
