According to a new report from TechCrunch regrading Apple's supply chain movement ahead of next week's iPhone media event. The site claims that it has once again taken over a majority of the shipping space out of China, likely to help move its new handsets.
It looks like that Apple's shipping volume is apparently so high right now, that it’s begun displacing shipments from other manufacturers. TC’s Matthew Panzarino says that shippers, such as FedEx and UPS, are so booked up, it’s causing delays for other major device makers.

Among the things the company believed to be announcing on September 9 is a wearable smartwatch, that the media calling it "iWatch".
