One of the reports claim that in order for the 4.7-inch variant to boast a sapphire glass display, Apple s suppliers should have started shipping it by the end of June. Only then would it be ready in time for launch in September. But that hasn t happened, and hence the conclusion. The device will however use sapphire glass on its camera lens and fingerprint scanner just like the iPhone 5S.
The other report mentions that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 variant will enter mass production sometime in September, which will give suppliers enough time to manufacture the sapphire display. Interestingly, the report also claims that the iPhone 6 phablet is likely to be unveiled alongside the much rumored iWatch. Apple s first smartwatch, which was initially expected to be launched in October, has been reportedly delayed owing to production issues.
