iPhone 6 reportedly in final test stage before mass production

The iPhone 6 is now facing its final test phase in preparation for mass production. At least, that’s the latest scuttlebutt from Chinese media.

Purportedly based on sources at Apple supplier Foxconn, a report from Chinese blog site Weibo claims that the iPhone 6 is now in a stage called product validation test (PVT), according to the G for Games blog. The PVT stage means that the iPhone assembly line ramps up to full speed to see if any hitches creep into the process. A small number of iPhones are manufactured for a quality-control check, and the assembly line may be tweaked if the process needs any refinements. Mass production then starts as soon as the PVT passes muster.

However, a July report from Chinese media claimed that mass production of a 4.6-inch iPhone 6 was already slated to start in July, while production of a 5.5-inch model would kick off during the second week of August. So which report is correct, assuming either of them are?

One possible explanation is that the July report may have been accurate at the time but that Apple ran into issues that led to a delay in actual mass production. Another explanation is that one or more of the sources for these two reports simply has the facts wrong.

The source of the newest report is Xiang Ligang, a former professor at the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications and currently CEO of a Chinese publication called CCTimes, according to G for Games. As such, G for Games gives him some credibility based on his expected knowledge of Apple’s Chinese supply chain sources.

For now, though, take all of this with the usual grain of salt as these items are still firmly in the rumor stage.

Whether it’s already reached mass production or is just about to reach it, the next iPhone needs to be ready soon. The iPhone 6 is expected to be unveiled next month, most likely at a media event on September 9, according to Recode. If true, that means Apple must be prepping production of the new iPhone in time for a consumer rollout later in September or early October at the latest.

A spokeswoman for Apple declined CNET’s request to comment on the mass production reports.

Sometimes it’s rally frustrating if your iPhone ran out of power when you are outside. You may have to take hours to charge your phones with USB or charger in public places. Now you get a wonderful alternative to charge your smart phones in the air. There’s a wonderful hardware, uBeam,  is introduced last Wednesday.

Meredith Perry who’s only 25 years old now, firstly started astrobiology at the University of Pennsylvania, but now no one would expected that she is now introducing this excellent new concept to the world. She created a technology to charge electronic devices on the air.

ubeam

To charge your iPhone or other smartphones, you just simply need a device (uBeam Charge Station) to convert electricity to ultrasound, and with a small USB like receiver, you can charge your electronic devices in the air.  The uBeam Charge Station can be made as thin as several millimeters and can be hide easily on decoration paintings on the wall. But due to it’s still under developing, there are still some barriers. For example, the Station can’t send ultrasound waves through the walls like what Wifi does. So you will have to get several Stations in different rooms.

But no matter what, it’s still nice to imagine what our daily lives would be changed if it’s available. People can charge their phones and laptops anytime anywhere. They even don’t need the large battery storage any more. That will make the devices much more lighter.

And it’s not far, since Perry said that uBeam will be available in the next two years. Let’s expect for it.

It is not news any more that iPhone 6 will be released on September 9, 2014. And according to rumors, there are many new features that may make you crazy about the new iPhone in 2014. Is iPhone 6 worth waiting? Here are the reason why the next generation iPhone in 2014 worth waiting.

Reason 1: It’s Bigger!!!

For years there are complaints of iPhone’s limited size comparing with other smartphones. And iPhone also attempts to change from 3.5 inches to 4 inches with the iPhone 5, and with iPhone 6 which is rumored to be even larger. How big will iPhone 6 be? Rumors say that the new iPhone in 2014 will be 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. Here’s what it will be like comparing with iPhone 5S according to MacRumors.

Reason 2: It has harder screen!

Still according to rumors, the new iPhone 6 is made of Sapphire crystal screen which is much much harder than the Gorilla glass for iPhone 5S and the previous generations of iPhones. How hard will Sapphire crystal screen be? Here’s a video to show you.

The screen will be much harder than iPhone 5S. As the guy is scratching the screen with sandpaper, you can see the result clearly. iPhone 5S’s screen has been severely destroyed while you can hardly find a scratch on the Sapphire crystal screen. The new screen can fully ease you from the worrying of making the screen scratched by keys or other hard objects. A big thumb up!

Reason 3: It’s faster and more efficient!

It is said that the new iPhone in 2014 will be using 20-nanometer A8 chip from TSMC (instead of Samsung) which will be both smaller and more energy efficient. And rumors say that the A8 processor may in fact be dual-core with a frequency of 2.0 GHz or higher per core.The A8 may also be limited to 1GB of RAM, the same as the A7. But anyway, iPhone never disappoint its users and fans. Let’s just wait for a more efficient iPhone.

Reason 4: Larger Storage option!

It’s kind of frustrating if your iPhone ran out of space. And to clean the space is also a time taking thing. And you will have to think where to save your important thing. According to the rumors, you won’t have the trouble now since Apple will introduce 128GB storage for some builds of 5.5-inch iPhones. And of course the price will be higher. And the rumors say that the price for 5.5-inch iPhone 6 will be raise, making it $299 with a carrier contract, while selling the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone for the standard $199 on contract.

Reason 5: A new version of iOS!

As you may already know that the new iOS is often more compatible with its matched iPhone. Although Apple forced you to update iOS no matter you are using iPhone 5 or 5S. If you update the iOS on a lower generation iPhone, you may make your iPhone slower. It’s like a dilemma. If you want new features, you have to sacrifice speed. But it won’t happen to new iPhone with a new iOS. The new iPhone 6 is said to be released with iOS 8 who’s beta version is previewed by Apple’s Worldwide developers at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June. iOS 8 will come out with several new features that improve integration between Apple’s mobile and desktop devices. It improves message management tools, interactive notifications,  a revamped “QuickType” keyboard, iCloud Drive access, and an all new health and fitness aggregation app, called simply “Health.”

In a word, according to the rumors, the new iPhone will provide larger space, bigger and harder screen, and faster and more efficient experience. Let’s expect for more stunning features to be announced on September 9, 2014.
