Apple to Produce 90 Million iPhone 6S Units

By James O Malley on at

The next iPhone - which we expect to be called the iPhone 6S - will be produced in record breaking numbers, according to reports.

The Wall Street Journal says that Apple has asked its suppliers to churn out somewhere between 85m and 90m iPhones of both models (the expected iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus) by the new year - smashing the 70-80m production run of the iPhone 6 last year.

The WSJ seemingly also confirms that screen dimensions will be staying the same this time around - staying at 4.6" and 5.5" for the two models. This is in line with earlier rumours, which expects the new phone to look pretty much identical to the iPhone 6.

The news is a show of confidence from Apple, which has had a good year after iPhone demand has remained strong. Meanwhile rivals Samsung and HTC have struggled - with the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 both underperforming.
