Apple’s Higher iPhone Order Includes About 25 Million iPhone 5s
Apple has high hopes for the iPhone as we head into the second half of 2011 and the annual holiday consumer binge. The company has reportedly raised its iPhone orders for the rest of the year by upward of 12 percent.
Supply chain sources tell Taiwanese trade mag DigiTimes that Apple has ordered 56 million iPhones for the second half of calendar 2011, about half of them (25.5 million to 26 million) the fifth-generation model expected to launch in October.
If correct, that 56 million iPhone figure means Apple will have produced an astonishing 95 million iPhones in CY 2011.
