Alleged iPhone 6 battery problems solved via new supplier?

updated 01:09 pm EDT, Tue July 15, 2014

New batteries thinner, more flexible than Samsung or LG offerings

Apple has allegedly solved battery problems for the iPhone 6 by turning to a new supplier, Taiwan's Simplo Technologies, says the Taiwan-based Economic Daily News. The company was reportedly having trouble finding batteries that were both thin and flexible enough from previous suppliers Samsung and LG Chemical. It's not clear whether EDN is referring to the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone -- most commonly labeled the iPhone 6 -- or the supposed 5.5-inch model as well, which was already said to have had battery problems fixed, despite a lack of evidence of either the alleged problem or its resolution.

Reports have hinted at production obstacles for both devices, but more commonly with the alleged 5.5-inch model. Some accounts have hinted that the latter phone could even be pushed into 2015, although a more likely situation is that the 4.7-inch product will ship first, followed by a possible 5.5-inch one a month or two later.
