Earlier this afternoon word came in that Thailand had approved Apple's application to distribute two new iPhone 6 models in the country. Now there's more news out of Asia, stating that the device 6 is now in the PVT (Product Validation Test) stage of production at Foxconn in China. That means that production is about to ramp up in a big way.
You've seen the leaks, you've read the rumors, but enough is enough: When is the next-generation iPhone actually going to start rolling off the assembly lines? We don't have those answers, but it appears manufacturing is indeed kicking off this month.
