iPhone 4S Orders Diminishing as 6th Gen Device Looms
Production orders for the iPhone 4S have dipped markedly, according to a new report that is raising questions about how soon the 6th generation iPhone will be introduced to the public.
On Tuesday, analyst Shaw Wu told investors that his supply-chain sources confirm that Apple has dramatically cut iPhone 4S orders by as much as 25% in some instances That's a big dip when you consider that 35.1 million units were shipped just during this past March quarter.
Sterne Agee’s Shaw Wu this morning reiterates a Buy rating on shares of Apple (AAPL) and a $780 price target, while cutting his projection for the company’s iPhone unit sales this quarter and next, as he believes Apple is reducing production before refreshing the phone with what a “sixth generation” unit.
"From our understanding, the reason for the reduction is not demand related but rather due to the upcoming 6th generation iPhone refresh likely in the September-October timeframe," Wu says. "It appears AAPL is opting to be conservative with its suppliers to factor in a potential 2-quarter pause ahead of the refresh and also to manage inventory."

And everyone will be disappointed on the inside because it will still be behind current Android phones, but cheer to make themselves feel better and continue living in their denial.

technically also, inclusion of LTE will not be a major factor, the processor, memory etc need to be revamped... non of this crappy underclocked cpus with disabled cored, limited bluetooth functionality, NFC, screen size etc... many aspects of the device need to be improved. Cant stick with the same old forever

If it's called the iPhone 6 and not iPhone 5 I will ship my left testicle to ModMyI using the most expensive same day or overnight shipping.

If it didn't come from Apples PR department, or internally, who cares. Unless they have die hard and factual numbers, plus an explanation from Apple, this is just speculation! I speculate when sales numbers come out, they will be stellar as usual!

^hahaha what norb said. Although it will just be called "the new iPhone", and anyone who doesn't think so is delusional. iPhone 5 or iPhone 6 would just confuse people. With a redesign, it will be easy to differentiate and they will follow suit with the new naming convention, ie. non-numerical.

LOL GmAZ you actually come here to insult apple fans? GTFO Android sucks.

Not sure of the denial you are talking about. I really think its the other way around. Thats why there are so many Apple haters. There is no other way to explain the hatred.
And THANK YOU for calling the next iPhone the 6th gen and not iPhone 5.

Could this really mean a June iPhone release? Seems kind of weird to me. Doesn't make sense to wait til October 2011 to release a not so great iPhone only to release a great one 6 months later. I doubt the next iPhone will be out in June. Just my 2 cents. Also, please stop with the personal attacks and stay on topic. Otherwise I can use that handy report button.

If that is the case then you are lucky with your iPhone.
My proximity sensor is not working, my phone crashes at least once a week the Mobile Substrate message almost feel like it is the lock screen.
There is absolutely nothing new coming on the iOS other than trying to block jailbreaking, Apple should spend that time improving on its iOS. There better be some spectacular improvements on the iOS for the next phone or else I am moving on.

I REALLY hope iOS 6 brings some major updates to their OS, but I have high doubts about that. I still wish Apple would make changes to the OS part (get rid of the ugly blue gloss and do something different). I think their OS would look good with a matte color scheme.
Some icons need a major overhaul as they look thrown together (Clock, Photos, Calendar, etc) and don't fit in with the others. I'd like to see the Phone and SMS app icons have two different colors.
If a word is misspelled, there should be a list of words to choose from instead of a single popup of what iOS thinks you mean (I know there's a jailbreak tweak but it didn't work so well)
I have tons more but I'll stop there.
