iPhone 6 production software questions validity

Production of the iPhone 6 is expected to being next month, or more so its display. We don’t need proof to know that Apple will release the iPhone 6 later this year, but when images appear showing Apple’s next smartphone, we have to take them for what they are.

The latest rumor shows us what is believed to be tooling for the iPhone 6, and while this is enough to spark a debate, what has gained more attention is the software seen on the iPhone 6 schematics, which you can see above.

Many people have looked at the image, which appeared on the Weibo social network, and said they find it hard to believe the validity because of the software used in the production process. However, seeing as though Foxoconn handles production, it is very likely that they would use such software, which so happens to be a version of Windows rather than Mac.

It looks to be Windows XP, which is not that uncommon in China, although many facilities have since upgraded to Windows 7. It is for that reason why we should not discount the image.

There is also another image, which you can see in the source link above. This has also raised questions because people were trying to understand why an injection-molding tool would need to be used on a phone made from metal and not plastic.

On further investigation, it would seem this is part of a die, which would be used to hold the iPhone 6 in place, if real of course, ready for the handset to be machined.

We wonder how long it will be before people try to work out the size of the die to ascertain the overall size of the iPhone 6, if it is the tooling for Apple’s next smartphone that is?
