Mass production of Apple iPhone 7 underway at Pegatron?


We are probably close to three months away from the release of the Apple iPhone 7. Apple has ordered as many as 78 million units, according to an earlier report. These handsets don't appear by magic, so manufacturers need to have a long lead time to fulfill orders. With that in mind, tipster @OnLeaks sent out a tweet this morning stating that the iPhone 7 has slowly started mass production at Pegatron.

His tweet also confirmed an earlier rumor that said production of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus would be done solely by Pegatron rival Foxconn. Both contract manufacturers will assemble the iPhone 7.

As the days roll on and more and more iPhone units roll off the assembly line (see what we did there?), the number of leaks will start to increase exponentially. One of the latest rumors that we passed along claims that technical difficulties have forced Apple to abandon the idea of using a dual camera setup for the iPhone 7 Plus. If true, this wouldn't be the first time that Apple has been forced to make a change to the iPhone so close to the start of production.

Two years ago, Apple was reportedly all set to use sapphire glass for the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Apple even worked out a deal with a sapphire company called GT Technologies. Problems with low yields doomed the project, and GT eventually declared bankruptcy.

Now that mass production of the iPhone 7 has allegedly started, the number of leaks should rise exponentially. If your summer daydreams include the purchase of your next iPhone, check in often.

And here comes The King... And here comes the haters... Notably iBend and Teachie 'The Transformer' with their cheeky and cheesy (and a bit spicy!) stereotypes... G'Day!

Yeah, GreenMan is a weirdo, but I actually find him entertaining.

Me a weirdo? Oh, Hardly, my liege... If you expected me to say: "Oh wow, Apple is brilliant and that's a lot of phones... Dude, Apple rocks... Man, this sh!t is tight blah blah blah"... Then you're mistaken for I'm no fan boy... I always hail to the king, let it be Nokia, Blackberry or iPhone... And iPhone is the current King... I don't pick sides, the sides pick me! G'Day!™

Only a true fanboy would start a flame war. If you can't say "oh that's cool" and talk about something much more relative to the articles than your love for iPhones then you're a joke. G'Day..

Impatiently waiting for some authentic leaks, honestly! I've had enough with the "allegedly leaked" photoshppped images circulating the web... Each and every tech blog has its own unique and so claimed "genuine" "authentic" and "exclusive" image (Yawn)... But that DOES hype things up! G'Day!™

As good as ios10 looks, if Apple can deliver an equally good iPhone, I just may have to consider it. I'm diggin' iOS 10 big time.

Get em both my dude, and enjoy em. I think Apple just may be throwing us a curveball, with controlled iPhone leaks. I'm starting to think it's gonna be a big time phone...not incremental.

Pegatron? Isn't he the leader of the Decepticons?

Yeah funny, but I bet that the similarity of the two names hasn't even registered in the minds of the Taiwanese company.

Why would it even need to?

It most definitely wouldn't.

Just an observation that amused me. No hidden meaning in it.

Yup, I totally got that, which is why I replied... no hidden meaning either. :)

Yes he is. And watch as he leads the Deceptivons to that victory that never happens. The Galaxians eoll.stoll. even the champion. Remember that gets? Let them enjoy their phone. I don't see anything to get excited about. I'm waiting for the best. What so you get when you cross Samsung with Kryptonite? You get Samsonite the most powerful in the world.
