iPhone 6 Could Have Shortest TTM Yet

By  | 

With the iPhone 5 already out, now the Apple rumor mill is looking towards the iPhone 6. Kicking it off, the folks over at TheCommercialTimes suggest that the iPhone 6 will already be in trial production come December of this year.

They say that we could see the iPhone 6 go in to volume production during Q1 of 2012. If there is any truth to this then we could see the iPhone 6 launch a great deal earlier than anyone would have guessed.

Apple launched the first iPhone in 2007 and ever since then have launched an iPhone on a mid-year annual release cycle. This schedule was followed by them until they launched the iPhone 4S in October of 2011. They then continued with the release of the iPhone 5 in 2012. This has left many people to believe that Apple will launch the follow up to the iPhone 5 in the fall of 2013.

However this latest news does have to be taken with a pinch of salt as the Commercial Times do have a record that is spotty and therefore we are not sure how much faith to put into the report. Whether the release of the iPhone 6 will be accelerated remains to be seen but we have to admit that WWDC in the summer seems pretty hollow without the iPhone.
