Apple reportedly orders a crazy 90 million iPhone 6s units from suppliers
Apple has spent a great deal of 2015 breaking smartphone records around the world. The company sold a staggering 74.5 million iPhones in just the first quarter alone, and that trend has continued over the following quarters, up to the point of defeating Xiaomi as the China smartphone king. There has been a ton of speculation over Apple’s sales forecast for its next-generation of iPhones, and today we get some solid data on the matter.
The Wall Street Journal has recently published a story that claims that Apple has placed a crazy order for 90 million iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus units. We don’t know what the exact mix for manufacturing will be, for manufacturing, but we do hear that Apple will indeed bring a new Rose Gold color option with this new lineup. Force Touch technology is also mentioned by the source, which means that those waiting to buy new iPhones should look forward to new ways to interact with the phone.
We expect to see Apple launch its new iPhone lineup in September, just like it has in previous years. We should learn more about the manufacturing process in leaks to come.
