It sounds like Apple are pretty confident that their new iPhone set for release later this year will do a wonderful job selling worldwide. So confident in fact, that Apple have decided to manufacture over 70 million new iPhones, according to a new report.
Last year, Apple released two new iPhone devices; the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C, however Apple only manufactured around 50-60 million new iPhones last year before they released both the iPhone 5S and 5C.
Whilst the suppliers have not been identified, a total 0f 70-80 million new iPhones will make this year Apple’s biggest manufacturing run since they first released the original iPhone in 2007.
Both of the new iPhones will have larger screens than either of their predescors, with reports and alleged prototype devices suggesting that Apple will be releasing a new device with a 4.7 inch display, and a larger phablet model with a 5.5 inch display.
Many manufacturers like Samsung and LG have already been selling large screened devices for a number of years, and whilst Apple did up the size of their smartphones with the iPhone 5, this will be the first time Apple release a new device that has a screen size that enters into phablet territory.
Apple maintained their screen size to just 3.5 inches for many years, however after seeing the demand in the market for larger screened devices, they have taken the steps to stay competitive with their competition. It will be interesting to see how Apple markets the new screen size, and how Apple fans will take it after knowing that Android and Windows have had large screened phones on their OS for many years now.
Whilst more details are starting to come in about the alleged two new iPhones, so far we do not have details on a release date for either device, and Apple has not yet officially confirmed their existence.
