Apple reportedly plans the biggest iPhone production in history for the iPhone 6S launch this fall.
The iPhone 6S is expected to be revealed in September and according to a new report on the Wall Street Journal, Apple wants to make sure there are enough iPhone 6S units available. Apple is telling suppliers to manufacture between 85 million and 90 million units combined of two new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus by end of year according to people familiar with the matter.

If the numbers hold up it would be the largest initial iPhone production in history, beating the iPhone 6 production volume by about 10 million units. The iPhone 6S will be disappointingly similar to the iPhone 6 according to the leaked iPhone 6S parts we have seen recently.
The major new feature besides the usual performance enhancements is a force touch screen as found in the Apple Watch. Even with the minor changes the iPhone 6S will set a new record sale and Apple will again scramble to fullfill orders in a reasonable time. Apple also tries with the iPhone 6S to avoid a botched launch like for the Apple Watch. They can't afford to do it again.
I myself will be strung out by then holding still on to an iPhone 5 as I am displeased with the design of the iPhone 6. I want though the bigger screen and better camera performance. The iPhone 5 will have run its course come fall. The iPhone 6S is likely still sporting the ugly antenna gaps and the protruding lens, but I can't wait for the iPhone 7 to get those design flaws finally fixed.
They maybe even not fixed at all as Sir Jonathan Ivy has moved into his new role that takes him further away from Apple and maybe away from details Steve Jobs would have not missed.
