Apple is Making How Many iPhone 6 Units Ahead of September's Launch?!?!
According to the latest industry buzz and supply chain chatter, the iPhone 6 will launch in the U.S. and select global markets on September 19th, keeping with the tradition of an early fall release.
But one thing will be different this time -- the number of units Apple will have on hand at the time of launch. Based on a slew of reports coming to light on Friday, Apple wants to have a staggering number of iPhone 6 units ready to ship by the time launch day rolls around.
So how many are we talking about exactly? 68 million. Media outlets in the far east say Apple's iPhone 6 inventory on launch day will be far greater than anything we've seen before. It's a move that will hopefully mitigate any likelihood of global product shortages, which have become quite commonplace in recent years.
"A 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is expected to be joined by a larger 5.5-inch version," says Andrew Williams of TrustedReviews. "With different screen sizes and different resolutions, it would mark the most significant hardware change since the seriesís inception."
