Apple Ramping Up Gold iPhone 5s Production “Significantly”
Facing what it described as “incredible” demand for its new iPhones — particularly the gold iPhone 5s — Apple is ramping up production of that handset. Sources close to the company tell AllThingsD that Apple has instructed its manufacturing partners to “significantly” boost production of the gold 5s. These same sources declined to provide a hard percentage increase for the production ramp, but The Wall Street Journal, which has heard similar claims, reports that it may be as large as an additional one-third. Apple did not respond to a request for comment.
