We knew Apple wasn't going to let the Samsung S-Whatever buzz go unchallenged. Our homies over at Complex just dropped the word that it looks like the iPhone 6 is heading into production soon. They, in turn, got their news from TechRadar who write:
Taiwan's Pegatron Corporation, a key player in the assembly Apple iPhones and iPads, is reportedly gearing up to manufacture the new iPhone 6.
The Commercial Times has word that the manufacturer has opened up a new factory space on the outskirts of Shanghai at Kunshan. Along with the new facility, Pegatron is also said to be in the midst of a hiring spree to fill the imminent iPhone 6 orders.
The newspaper claims this burst of activity is to prepare for iPhone 6 production, which should begin in the second quarter, according to sources the paper wouldn't identify. The report also didn't specify an exact timeline for the release of Apple's new flagship handset.
Unfortunately, as with any unofficial Apple release announcement, it's all speculation at this point, as Complex writes "While we don’t have much to go off in terms of details and specs of the iPhone 6 (iPhone 5Z? 5Y?), what we do have are endless rumors."

What are these endless rumors? Well, there is talk about the new Apple phone having a larger screen, and some pretty groovy health apps, putting it in direct competition with the new features on the rumored Samsung "iPhone Killer".
