Apple’s next-generation iPhones have entered production ahead of their launch this September, according to sources in the Cupertino company’s supply chain. Initial shipments of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in the fourth quarter are expected to reach a whopping 50 million units.
“Makers in the iPhone supply chain have started delivering parts and components to the two iPhone OEMs Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron for production of next generation iPhone devices,” reports DigiTimes.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are expected to be Apple’s biggest “incremental” iPhone release so far. In addition to Force Touch, improvements will reportedly include faster processors, improved Touch ID, faster LTE, and much-improved cameras.
Together with the existing iPhone lineup, the new and improved iPhones are expected to help Apple reach 230-240 million shipments throughout 2015, which is a significant increase over the 192 million units shipped in 2014.
As a result of those record shipments, suppliers like Foxconn, Pegatron, Largan Precision, Catcher Technology, Foxlink Technology, General Interface Solution (GIS), Zhen Ding Technology, and Flexium Interconnect will see improved sales performance, DigiTimes adds.
