On Thursday, The China Post (via MacRumors) cited an analyst from Nomura Securities who asserted the iPhone 6 will continue to use an 8-megapixel sensor. Despite several minor upgrades the camera will likely receive, he believed it will not gain a higher-resolution sensor.
Also on Thursday, rumors made the rounds that Apple will be increasing its reliance on Pegatron for the next-generation iPhone production. Taiwan’s Liberty Times said Pegatron might land a contract to assemble half of the iPhone 6 supplies.
This would be a substantial upgrade for the manufacturer. Pegatron is currently responsible for the assembly of Apple’s iPad mini and iPhone 5c, while Foxconn assembles the iPhone 5s.
Daniel Sparks also writes in The Motley Fool article that investors would be wise to listen to Tim Cook’s advice on reading into supply-chain rumors – really? Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
