MacRumors reports on a DigiTimes news story today that says that Apple’s manufacturing partner Foxconn is already producing vast quantities of iPhone 5s: 150,000 per day, to be exact. According to DigiTimes, lens maker Largan Precision, touch panel maker TPK Holding, reinforced glass maker G-Tech Optoelectronics and battery makers Simplo and Dynapack are all churning out their various contributory parts at maximum capacity as well. Although Pegatron is also due to be involved in the production process after signing a new deal with Apple, it is not expected to start shipping until early in the new year. DigiTimes adds that this means that Apple is on course to ship 5-6 million iPhone 5s in September, and over 4 million in total in Q4. As MacRumors notes, this report only refers to one iPhone, the iPhone 5, and not the rumoured iPhone 4S, so maybe this is an indication that Apple really will only be releasing one iPhone this fall.

That sounds about right! last time with the 4 they had such a shortage and ended up having a 3 week wait! people who pre ordered on the 15th very early where lucky to get it on the 24th or in that week but after that it took ages! but some people in america got it on the 23rd as well and then because apple rushed it we saw a lot of problems with the devices, so this year they wont leave anything to chance
