Report: Next Apple iPhone model is an incremental update
Component makers are forecast to ride Apple's orders to 30% growth sequentially in Q2. Foxconn Electronics chairman Terry Guo previously stated his expectations that business would pick up in April and May, which would be the time that components would be arriving to be assembled into the iconic smartphone. The sources said that if all components arrive without a hitch, in 1 to 2 weeks after the components arrive, the next Apple iPhone would be ready to start being shipped to retail channels for a third quarter launch.
As with any news about the next Apple iPhone at this point in time, have that salt shaker nearby.
