Apple is reportedly boosting production for two its flagship smartphones as it struggles to keep up with demand. It is reported that Apple may be tapping electronics assembler Pegatron, in addition to Foxconn, to produce additional units of both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as the company heads into the holiday shopping season.
A report on Nikkei suggests that Pegatron is expanding production capacity for the iPhone 6 and the assembler is also rumored to have been tapped to assist Foxconn with iPhone 6 Plus production:
Apple assembler Pegatron is expanding production capacity to handle strong global demand for the iPhone 6.... Local press reports suggest Apple may also tap Pegatron to produce the iPhone 6 Plus since Foxconn has been struggling to cope with demand. Pegatron officials did not comment directly on the media speculation.
Pegatron head Jason Cheng told investors that his company will complete its $200 million capital expenditure this year and that figure will increase to $300 million next year.
