  • Pegatron May Help Ease iPhone 6 Production Burden


    As the holiday shopping season commences, demand for Apple products -- particularly, the company's new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus -- is intensifying with each passing day.

    Although Apple has managed to skirt any major product shortfalls across the globe this time around, remaining ahead of the game isn't something Apple is taking lightly or for granted. As a result, the latest buzz out of Asia's supply and production channels is that Apple will turn to a longtime ally to help accelerate iPhone 6 production in the weeks and months to follow.

    Nikkei Asian Review reports that Apple assembler Pegatron "is expanding production capacity to handle strong global demand for the iPhone 6."

    How do we know this? By the admission of Pegatron's own Chief Executive Jason Cheng, the company now expects to end the year with $200 million in capital expenditure... BUT, those numbers will increase to $300 million next year, a clear sign of something big to come.

    "Cheng's statement came as Pegatron, the Apple supplier believed to be responsible for iPhone 6 production along with Foxconn Technology Group," the report explains, "saw revenue from its communications products grow 10% year on year and net profit surge 92% to NT$4.7 billion ($153 million) in the July to September period - the same quarter the U.S. tech giant began shipping the iPhone 6."
