Apple ups iPhone orders for second half of 2011

Orders 6m iPhone 5s for Q3, 20m for Q4, report claims

Apple has ordered 26 million iPhone 5s from suppliers to be delivered in the second half of 2011, it has been claimed.

Digitimes reports that Apple has ordered six million iPhone 5s for Q3 and 20 million for Q4, according to "Taiwan-based supply chain makers".

Total iPhone shipments will reach 95 million for the year, with some 56 million in the second half alone. As well as the 26 million iPhone 5s, there will be 30 million shipments of the current models, the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

The report also states that component suppliers are likely to be put under pressure by Apple to lower prices, in particular touch-panel makers.
