June 27th – iPhone 5 Production Will Begin In August
Apple will begin production of the iPhone 5 this August, ahead of many reports that suggested a late third quarter launch.According to a report by Morgan Stanley analyst, Katy Huberty, Apple’s next iPhone; be it the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S, will begin production in ‘mid to late August and ramp up aggressively’ as it approaches to September/October.
The fifth generation iPhone, the iPhone 5, is expected to be released sometime in mid-September to early October as well.
Huberty went on to state that the iPhone 5‘s later-than-usual launch still hasn’t shifted Apple projected sales for the full year as they still estimate that they will sell roughly 72 million units.
However, she also went on to state that the release of the iPhone 5 near the beginning of the fourth quarter would “drive upside” of the 72 million units of projected sales.
Report: iPhone 5 Production In August; Apple TV For The Future
On another note, Huberty suggested that a lower-priced iPhone (dubbed the iPhone-mini by many analysts) and an Apple-branded television would drive in and generate an incredible amount of new revenue for the company.
The Cupertino, California tech-giant has recently proposed that the company expand its headquarters to a new, space-like building that would cost quite a bit, which may be a relieve to shareholders eyeing the possible next big thing in the works.
On the possibility of an Apple-TV Hubert said “”We believe Apple is in the early design stages for a TV, which could add $ 19 billion and $ 4.50 of annual revenue and EPS longer-term”.
Although in its early stages, we can surely expect that it would all be synced with the plethora of Apple-products almost everyone seems to have carrying around these days.
