Foxconn confirms 4.7" Apple iPhones

Foxconn logoApple is holding its annual WWDC in San Francisco and that should see the debut of the iOS 8. The iPhone announcement have previously taken place on the WWDC too, but not since the iPhone 4S went official in October 2011.

Sure, as the announcement gets closer the iPhone leaks get more aggressive. We've already seen a 4.7" alleged iPhone 6 leaks from all corners of the globe. And while we are still wondering if Apple will change its pattern again, Foxconn has stepped up and spilled the beans on Apple's plans.

Apple iPhone 6

Foxconn issued a press release today, saying it is going to manufacture the Apple's 4.7" and 5.5" iPhone models in 2014. It will start shipping the 4.7" iPhone (probably 6) in July, while the 5.5" iPhone will enter mass production in August. Foxconn also claims it will account for the 70% of all 4.7" iPhones by 2015.

Here is the press release:
