This week NBTC secretary Takorn Tantasith confirmed the existence of two versions of the iPhone 6, with model numbers A1586 and A1524, on Twitter.
But Apple was not very happy about the public disclosure of information regarding its unreleased products.
Thailand’s Thai Rath newspaper reports that Apple had a meeting with the officials in order to clarify the issue.
In response to the outrage, Tantasith said they only acted according to the country’s government regulations that require that the announcement of approved hardware must be made public.
No details about the upcoming smartphone were revealed but the term “iPhone 6” was used which is something that Apple doesn’t approve of.
A translation of the newspaper report offered by MacRumours claims that during the meeting Apple said that the two new models of the device might not be named “iPhone 6.”
In the end Apple reassured the NBTC that there will be no consequences for the release of the device in Thailand.
