Seems like the rumours surrounding the release of two iPhones are actually true. Apple is all set for the WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) and while it is quite obvious that Apple will be announcing the iOS 8, many fans are hoping for something more than just a new OS version. A previous rumour suggested that Apple just might show us the upcoming iPhone at the WWDC as well, but it is still advised to hold your horses considering how Apple stopped announcing iPhones at WWDC, the last iPhone that went official at WWDC was the iPhone 4s.
Despite having no official word about the iPhone(s) from Apple, someone decided to go on a bit of freelancing and revealed that Apple will be releasing two iPhones as rumoured previously. One iPhone will come with the screen size of 4.7 inches, and the other one will be having a 5.5 inches screen. Considering how Apple never went beyond 4.3 inch screen size, this will definitely please a lot of consumers.
The famous Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn issued a statement saying that the company will be in charge of manufacturing the two iPhones that will be released somewhere this year. According to the statement, the company will start shipping the iPhones somewhere in July (for the iPhone with 4.7 inches) as far as the latter is concerned, the iPhone with 5.5 inches of screen will go into mass production somewhere in August. According to Foxconn, by the year 2015, the company will be answering for a total of 70% percent iPhones with 4.7 inches screen. Here’s the full statement issued by Foxconn.
