iPhone 5: Apple orders 15 million new phones

New report claims Apple is gearing up for major release in September.

The iPhone 5’s release date is edging ever closer, with Apple reportedly ordering 15 million units of the next-gen smartphone. That’s according to Digitimes, which says it’s been told about Cupertino’s plans by, “…sources from upstream component makers.”

The report says Jobs and co have sent word to Taiwanese gadget manufacturer Pegatron Technologies that they want the new phones primed and ready to go by September. Pegatron has not commented, but having been key in the production of the iPhone 4, it’s highly likely that it’s been chosen once again to make the new version of the best-selling blower.

Digitimes says the iPhone 5 will not represent a “major update”, seemingly reiterating rumours that Apple is working on a minor boost rather than a complete overhaul.
