Apple To Increase Their Typical Production With The iPhone 5?

Apple has generated so much expectation for their still unreleased iPhone 5 that apparently they plan to prepare to not leave you waiting in line for one on release date. Digitimes reports some updated estimates for iPhone production, and according to them, orders for the iPhone will increase by around 12 to 13%. That means Apple plans to grow in their current sales of 50 million units, to 56 million in just the second quarter o this year. Now the interesting part of the report is having Apple estimate that 26 million of those units will be iPhone 5s.

Since we’re badly beginning the second half of the year, it’s hard to tell if the iPhone 4 has begun to drop in sales volume as early adopters prepare for the next generation device, or if Apple plans to fill the rest of the 30 million units with yet another iPhone that could be released at the same time. Just this past quarter, Apple sold 20.34 million iPhones when you combined the sales figures of the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, so the numbers do look credible as long as Apple is able to pull off another breakthrough product.
