While technological world expects a new version of the iPhone, which should be presented in September, the public is amused with speculation concerning primarily the size of the screen of the new device. It is widely accepted expected that the direct successor to the 4 inch model will be a new 4.7 inch mobile phone, while in an entirely different segment Apple could qualify with another iPhone, but this time screen diagonal could be 5.5 inches.

However, it turns out that the latter model fell into manufacturing problems. Although Apple already ordered batteries, some sources say that precisely in this segment of production came to a halt. According to this information, producers can not make a battery that would meet the thickness requirements from Cupertino. Apple reportedly wants a battery that is not thicker than 2 millimeters to make the 5.5 inch device extremely thin, and suppliers simply can't achieve that yet.

Because of this problem 5.5 inch iPhone could be delayed to early 2015., and if they fail to squezze this thin battery in it, Apple will certainly not be able to call it iPhone Air.
