Record number of Apple iPhone 6 units ordered; mass production starts next month

Record number of Apple iPhone 6 units ordered; mass production starts next month
A report published in Taiwan on Wednesday, states that Apple has ordered twice the number of Apple iPhone 6 units than the number of Apple iPhone 5 units it ordered two years ago. It is unclear if the report is referring to the 4.7 inch iPhone 6, the 5.5 inch iPhone phablet, or both models. One published report estimates that Apple will order 68 million units of the iPhone 6, expected to be unveiled in September.

The report goes on to add that mass production of the phone will begin next month. Reportedly, the CEOs of Foxconn (Terry Gou) and Pegatron (Tung Tsu-hsien) were alerted to this by Apple, early last month.

With the two contract manufacturers gearing up to produce the Apple iPhone 6, and possibly the larger Apple iPhone phablet (rumored to be called the iPhone Air), we are getting ready for the stretch run that takes us to September. Earlier today, we passed along word that Apple has started receiving the next-gen A8 processor from TSMC. We also told you about a new type of haptic feedback, said to be employed on the Apple iPhone 6.

With just a few more weeks to go until Apple takes the wraps off of iPhone 6, the number of leaks featuring the device, should rise in proportion to how close we are to the actual date of introduction. It might be a turbulent trip the rest of the way, but it will be interesting.

Thanks for the tip!

Here we go again . Stupid iboy makes dirty propaganda, If you really own Note 3 should already know that Note 3 is NOT ONLY bigger screen. Right?

Wish they concentrated on battery rather than thinness. Congrats for 10000+ comments BTW.

Thanx, I wonder if that's the most.

I wonder if Apple is technically able to put a better camera in a thinner case. Makes me think the iPhone 6 will have another 8MP camera, but with some slightly upgraded specs.

That's quite a hard task. The size of the image sensor affects image quality the most, and larger sensor means extended focal length that again translates to increase in thickness. Law of physics.....

I agree by this time next year Apple will have 75% of the smartphone market, Samsung 20% and the rest of the manufacturers will have the 5%. You can take that to the bank.
