Manufacturer gets order for 15 million iPhone 5s for September release?
DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwanese manufacturer Pegatron Technology has landed a huge order from Apple to manufacture the iPhone 5. The order is thought to be in the region of 15 million iPhone 5 units and it will start shipping in September. Pegatron Technology currently manufactures the Verizon CDMA iPhone 4 for Apple. The information comes from upstream component makers, of course, and not from Pegatron Technology itself.
DigiTimes has a very patchy record with iPhone and iPad rumors so take this one with the usual factory-sized grain of salt. Personally I think the rumor of the iPhone 5 launching in September is reasonably accurate and that it will be a minor upgrade too. I can see a processor bump, more RAM and a better camera but not much more.
