New report from The Wall Street Journal suggests that Apple is preparing themselves very well to avoid an iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus shortage this fall – like it happened with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. According to the WSJ, Apple is ordering suppliers to manufacture between 85 million and 90 million units combined of its upcoming iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus by December 31. The report suggest that the screen size for both model will remain the same as it’s currently now: 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus.
By comparison, last years Apple ordered its manufacturers to produced 70 million to 80 million iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units as initial productions.
The WSJ notes that because of this, Foxconn is recruiting even more workers for its iPhone production plant at Zhengzhou, north-central China. Because of the large amount of iPhones Apple has ordered, Apple will have three different manufacturing companies producing iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. This manufacturers will include Foxconn, Wistron Corp, and Pegatron Corp.
