Apple iPhone 5 release date to see 10 million units ship

Apple anticipate huge iPhone 5 launch demand

With rumours of what features Apple will pack into its next-generation iPhone hotting up, new reports have suggested the fruity tech company will ship more than 10 million units of the iPhone 5 ahead of launch.

Expected to follow the company’s strict annual product cycles and launch in June or July this year, Apple is reported by DigiTimes to have placed an order of 10 million iPhone 5 units from its hardware supplier Pegatron, a company previously responsible for the production of the iPhone 4 and the recently unveiled Verizon iPhone 4.

The report states: “Pegatron received the CDMA iPhone orders in early 2010 with a volume of about 10-12 million units and the company recently landed orders for the next-generation iPhone, with the initial order volume to be at least 10 million units.”

In recent years, huge public demand and large opening day queues at Apple stores and networks across the globe has seen stocks of iPhone handsets run short within a matter of days from arrival. Recent rumours have seen the mooted iPhone 5 tipped with featuring NFC technology alongside the upcoming revamp to the iPad.
