Apple orders millions of iPhone 5s for September release

Insiders blabber again

Apple iPhone 4 pre-order

Apple has allegedly ordered 15 million iPhone 5 handsets from its Taiwanese manufacturing partners with a view to start shipping the gadget in September.

Well, that's what those familiar unnamed insiders from Taiwan's component world say. Apparently, notebook manufacturer Pegatron Technology has landed the Apple order, Digitimes reports.

It is claimed that Pegatron's plants in Shanghai have started to increase their workforces in preparation.

Anyone looking for another complete revamp may be disappointed, though. The sources insist there is little difference between the iPhone 4 and this September's successor, giving credence to the impression this is merely an iPhone 4GS. ®
