There shouldn’t be any doubt that the iPhone 6 is a highly anticipated device, but if there was, perhaps a new report citing supply chain resources will put those doubts to bed.
According to Business Weekl, the first iPhone 6 order could be for 68 million units. To make it possible to reach that goal, the report confirms earlier rumors that the iPhone 6 will indeed go into production in July, with both Foxconn’s chairman Terry Gou and Pegatron’s chairman Tung Tsu-hsien, being notified of the start date since the beginning of June.
The report doesn’t actually verify whether or not these orders are for just the 4.7-inch iPhone, or if it includes the rumored 5.5-inch model as well. It would not be much of a surprise if it includes both devices, but if Apple is expecting such a large demand for one of these models, it certainly would be an unprecedented move. With a launch date expected for September, and with new rumored feature like dynamic haptic feedback, the iPhone 6 is looking more and more like it could very well be a top seller for Apple in 2014 — and well into 2015.
Do you think Apple will match demand for the new iPhone?
