Taiwan supply chain sees Apple shipping as many as 80 million iPhones this quarter
According to the iPhone supply chain in Taiwan, we could see a massive number of Apple iPhone units shipped during the holiday quarter of 2015. The estimate is that Apple will ship 70 to 80 million units for the quarter that just started this month. Last year, with consumers excited by the larger screens available on the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus, fourth quarter sales (not shipments) reached a record 74.5 million units. The estimates are based on the orders Apple is placing with the supply chain for parts and components.

Shipments this quarter will partially include the new Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus, both of which will be unveiled tomorrow. The new models will feature Force Touch, a faster A9 chipset, the doubling of RAM to 2GB, and a camera combo (back to front) of 12MP/5MP. That would be a bump from the current 8MP/1.5MP combination. We should see the use of Series 7000 aluminum to prevent bending, a big improvement in screen resolution, and a Rose Gold color option.

For the current quarter, the Taiwan based iPhone supply chain sees Apple delivering 45-50 million units. While these iPhone parts and component suppliers see demand for the new models continuing in the first quarter of 2016, momentum for the new phones might not reach the level of growth achieved by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
