Apple slowing iPhone 4 production, gearing up for the next generation iPhone?

According to Digitimes, who are a bit hit and miss with these type of stories, Apple is currently in the process of reducing its demand for iPhone 4 models. According to its source, Apple has reduced its iPhone 4 requirements for the second quarter of 2011 from 20 million units down to 17.5-18 million. These figures are broken down into 16 million 3G models and 1.5 – 2 million CDMA models

As we posted last night, the same source also claims that production of the "iPhone 4S" will begin in August with an earliest launch of September, with a Qualcomm chipset for both CDMA and 3G versions and the rear camera would be an 8-megapixel.

As we get nearer WWDC, these stories and rumors will just keep on coming! Only the actual announcement of the next generation iPhone will stop them. Sadly, we might have to wait until fall this year for that to happen...
