Apple's iPhone 6 could arrive in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variations this year, but those clamoring for the latter may have to hold their breath a bit longer. According to Taiwan's Commercial Times, the purported phablet-sized iPhone could be delayed a year due to battery production issues. As pointed out by Cnet, battery manufacturers are having a hard time crafting a battery that would fit within the thin frame Apple wants for its 5.5-incher. According to the Commercial Times, the larger iPhone 6 would require a battery that is a maximum of 2 millimeters thick, whereas the average battery sits at 2.8 millimeters.
