After Apple ordered between 70 and 80 million units of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units last year, the company is getting ready to break a new record of producing 90 million models of the iPhone 6sthis year .
As the Wall Street Journal reports (via MacRumors), to produce between 85 and 90 million smartphones by the end of Apple’s suppliers. These figures include both the iPhone and the iPhone 6s 6s Plus. For comparison: last year, Apple had ordered 70 to 80 million iPhone 6 models.
The screen sizes are to comply with the current models with 4.7-or 5.5-inch panel. The exterior is – as known from the S models for years – remain largely the same.
The changes are primarily to be found inside. As previously reported on several occasions, the iPhone will now be equipped with a Force-touch display, which can distinguish between a mild and firm finger pressure. However, the resolution of the display should not be changed.
Apple could, according to the Wall Street Journal further new housing color – possibly Pink – imagine that in addition to silver, gold and Spacegrau should add to this model range itself.
The WSJ received the figures, which can be customized by Apple, depending on the current demand at any time from supplier circles. The producers should as early as last year Foxconn and Pegatron are. To meet demand, Apple is now also attract Wistron as the third manufacturer into consideration. The Taiwan-based company had already made the iPhone 5c in the past after Pegatron was commissioned with the production of the iPhone 6.
Should Wistron test production successfully made, this would be the first time that Apple three suppliers for the latest-generation iPhone employs. So there is once again the hope that the waiting times for the iPhone and iPhone 6s 6s Plus will turn out exceptionally shorter this year.
