With a purported iPhone release coming in October, the most recent news is far from surprising. With just over 2 months remaining until we see what Apple has up its sleeve, the company is ramping up production to prepare for the millions of eager consumers hoping to get their hands on the upcoming iPhone. Although it’s not surprising, it does come from a source within Pegatron – one of Apple’s biggest manufacturing parnters – via DigiTimes.
After last year’s alteration from the usual 12-month release cycle, it’s hard to know what to expect. The extra time meant that rumors and alleged leaks were flying in from all angles. It’s fair to say it got a little out of control, and many fans went in to the announcement with the hope of seeing a completely redesigned device. This year, speculation is a little more sedated, and yet it’s hard not to ignore the fact that it could all be fabricated. The rumor regarding this production comes alongside a slightly less believable one regarding the “smaller iPad”. Pinches of salt at the ready?
The iPhone probably is going in to production right now. But, I highly doubt that we’ll have any real clue as to what Apple’s plans are until the Keynote takes off.
