The upcoming iPhone 6 will enter production this month, according to reports from Taiwan.
Hon Hai Precision Industry, the world's largest contract manufacturer of electric goods, will begin making the device in the third week of July, reports Reuters.
The iPhone 6 is rumoured to be 4.7-inch in size, while production of a separate 5.5-inch version is apparently entering production during the second week of August.
Another report claims that Hon Hai Precision Industry is hiring 100,000 workers at its mainland facilities to meet future demand for the smartphon.
The iPhone 6 is due to be unveiled and launched globally in September. Apple is also said to be developing some sort of wearable tech device like an 'iWatch'.
