with information from Morgan Stanley, we can roughly make out when Apple would require the iPhone 6 to be launched
Though Apple never really hinted towards any launch month for its iPhone 6 but there is enough evidenc in place to let us wonder if the phone is coming out earlier than we had been expecting. There have been times from the The China Post and Taipei Times and they have revealed that aiwan’s Catcher Technology is going to supply the metal casings for the iPhone 6. Grace Chen, an analyst from Morgan Stanley, released a research note that gave away the information about Catcher shipping 0.5 million iPhone 6 casings this year, or in other words, they would be handling 15% of the total order.
From this we can make out our little piece of information that Apple might be selling as many as 70 million iPhone 6 handsets this year.We surely have enough information to map out the possible release of the iPhone 6. With this much amount, iPhone will most likely need more than a quarter of combined iPhone sales which would require Apple to release the phone by the earliest of the third quarter. We are expecting this would be earlier than the last year's model which went on sale in late September.
As stated by Chen, the ramping up of production of the iPhone 6 should start to help Catcher in the third quarter, making up 27 percent of the company’s third-quarter sales and 38 percent of its fourth quarter sales.” According to Morgan Stanley, Catcher is expected to hip 20 million casings for all iPhone models which also includes the iPhone 6 and would largely cover 17% of all iPhone orders in 2014. Meanwhile leaked iPhone 6 case is compared with iPhone 5S, Nexus 5 and Note 3.
