    Default Production of the iPhone 5S to Reportedly Begin by the End of this Month


    According to the folks over at AllThingsD, a production ramp up of the next-generation iPhone is set to begin around the end of this month. The news confirms a recent report from Jefferies analyst, Peter Misek who believes that Apple started a small batch of production of the iPhone 5S last month. With the company now gearing up for mass production, it appears to be making its final preparations for a launch later this year.

    A report from earlier today suggested that supplies of the iPhone 5S will be constrained at launch, as is the case with many new Apple product releases. The cause was attributed to low yields on a new fingerprint sensor that is expected in the device.

    For those of you who have been following rumors and speculations, you already know that several iPhone 5S prototype photos have already leaked, showcasing features such as a dual-LED flash and a slightly larger battery as well as an A7 chip. Misek for his part believes that the 5S production ramp-up is in addition to one thatís in progress for the rumored lower-cost iPhone. According to AllThingsD:

    Interestingly, Misek says that iPhone production ramp up will follow one thatís already under way for Appleís long-rumored lower-cost iPhone, a device he figures the company will price somewhere between $300 and $400 ó without a subsidy. He estimates production plans at 25 million to 30 million units, split pretty much evenly across the 5s and its new lower-cost sibling. And he says the new entry probably wonít be competitive with the truly low-end handsets popular in emerging markets.
    Last year, around this same point of time in July, we saw many reports of increased production in preparation for the release of the iPhone 5. This leads us to believe that reports of the current ramp-up in production are likely to be true.

    The Reporters are on a tear! The google map can't be downloaded in the US and now MMi drops a bombshell saying the iPhone 5 is almost ready for production. No doubt MMi is the best source for all things "i".

    Compared to the GS4, the iPhone 5Scam is no match. Just stick with your iP5 and apply the new iOS7 update. You will be good for another year.

    Must be so hard to be so nice on the internet, especially with so many trolls out there. Nice to see people set themselves apart from all that. So happy we have people like you to keep MMi such a fun loving, troll-free place.
