Multiple analysts have predicted that this year Apple will see a surge in demand for the iPhone. That might happen as this time around both new iPhones are expected to come with larger displays, something which many iPhone fans have been anxiously waiting for. The change may also bring back customers who were attracted by Android devices, most of which have now passed the 5-inch display mark.
If rumors are to be believed then Apple is certain about unprecedented demand for the iPhone 6 this year and it may have placed a record number of orders for iPhone 6 units just to be sure there are no demand supply constraints at launch.
A report published in Taiwan’s Business Weekly claims that Apple has placed a record number of orders for iPhone 6 units, almost double the amount of orders when compared to the iPhone 5. It hasn’t been clarified if the report refers to both 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch iPhone 6 models or any one of them
The publication expects that the first batch of iPhone 6 shipments will top 68 million units. Apple has reportedly notified the top brass at Pegatron and Foxconn of this and the manufacturers are now expected to begin mass production of the iPhone 6 later this month.
We have already seen countless leaked parts and panels of the iPhone 6, there appears to be consensus on the aforementioned display sizes even though Apple hasn’t confirmed anything as yet. The company is expected to unveil its new smartphones this September.
