The iPhone 6 is evidently a highly anticipated smartphone, and with the countless leaks and rumors that continue to surface every week, the hype keeps building up and it will most likely continue to do so until Apple’s next flagship phones will be officially announced.
Rumor has it that the iPhone 6 will be announced and released in September, so we still have a few good months before we can discuss any official details regarding the device. For now we’ll have to make do with unofficial pieces of the Apple puzzle, such as the one we had found moments ago, suggesting that Apple has placed an unprecedented amount of orders. More details after the break.
iPhone 6: Unprecedented Amount of Orders
Earlier today, Taiwan’s “Business Weekly” reported that the amount of iPhone 6 orders is unprecedented, and it is in fact twice as large when compared to the iPhone 5. The publication has not specified whether the aforementioned orders are for the 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch model, so it could be that the report refers to both, combined.
Either way, earlier rumors have indicated that shipments will be anywhere between 60 and 80 million, but Business Weekly now estimates that the first iPhone 6 batch / order will be of at least 68 million units.
Furthermore, the device(s) will allegedly enter mass production in July. Foxconn and Pegatron’s chairmen, Terry Gou and Tung Tsu-hsien respectively, have supposedly been notified by Apple in regards to the production plan since the second week of June.
It looks like Apple has great faith in its upcoming flagship device, and hopefully the smartphone(s) will deliver on the hype. Earlier today we also discussed the possibility that the next-gen iPhone could make use of a new type of haptic feedback technology, and based on the information that surfaced throughout these past several weeks, the iPhone 6 is shaping up to be quite an exciting smartphone.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more so stick around.
