Foxconn begins quality control of iPhone 6 before mass production

Employees on Foxconn's assembly line

We are less than a month away to check whether or not the numerous rumors that suggest that the iPhone 6 will be presented on September 9. Meanwhile Chinese media they report that from the factories of Foxconn the country is already carrying out the iPhone 6 quality control process fully assembled, before your massive chain production to meet the high demand that is expected.

Possibly the iPhone 6 is the phone of the company that is creating the most expectation, users expect a revolution in the Apple terminal with a larger screen, new features, functionalities and possibly a battery with greater autonomy. Foxconn would already be doing assembly tests to know if the production works correctly and if the device is ready to go on sale. This process is known as production validation test or PVT (from English Production Validation Test).

The PVT process can be described as a assembly line at full speed in which a small number of iPhone 6s are manufactured, to test how the assembly line behaves and check that there is no defect in the whole process that could seriously delay production a few weeks after its presentation and subsequent release on sale. If during these PVT tests no problem or defect is detected, the process is approved and the mass manufacture of units of the new device can begin.

Possibly the information is about the iPhone 6 model with large screen, which would be passing these production validation tests, since based on the numerous rumors of the last year, the company will surprise us in September with 2 iPhone 6 models, one with a 4,7 ″ screen that it would already be in production since last month and the largest model with a 5,5 ″ screen that would begin production in mid-August.

Do you think we will see the 2 iPhone 6 models for sale on the same date?
