Assuming information from Taiwan parts suppliers is correct, Foxconn is already building about 150,000 iPhone 5 units a day ahead of the device’s official launch. The anonymous sources also claim iPhone 5 shipments could hit 6 million in September, and 22 million for the fourth quarter, according to DigiTimes.
“Suppliers in the iPhone 5 supply chain in Taiwan have geared up production recently with volume shipments of the new Apple smartphones to begin soon. Production of iPhone 5s at OEM maker Foxconn Electronics has reportedly reached 150,000 units per day, according to industry sources. ”
iPhone 5 shipments are said to be set to reach 5-6 million for the month of September and over 22 million for the fourth quarter of the year. Interestingly, the report notes that while Pegatron has reportedly been tabbed to handle about 15% of the iPhone 5 production load, the company may not begin deliveries until next year.
From Apple store:
The Apple on-line store had a note Friday morning saying: “We are busy updating the store for you and will be back shortly.”
From the Best Buy internal memo:
The Best Buy internal memo revealing the iPhone 5 release date to be in the first week of October, and signifying that Sprint would be carrying the device in addition to incumbents Verizon and AT&T, is a fake designed to identify potential leakers within the retailer, according to a source.
And so far reports say nothing with the distinction between the iPhone 5 and the so-called “iPhone 4S”, so whether it is 3.7 inch or 4 inch remain scarce still.
