Word from the Asian supply chain says that Apple's partners will start delivering the new iPhone 7 starting end of Q3.

The iPhone 7, or maybe iPhone 6S 2nd generation, or whatever Apple will call the 2016 iPhone will be made by Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron says new report out of Taiwan.

Specifically the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 is made by Pegatron Technology and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), while the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus is manufactured by Wistron and Foxconn. 

Digitimes says in its report:  "Apple has been separating its component orders to multiple suppliers to lower risks, and the vendor currently has at least two suppliers for components such as batteries, hinges and chassis."

Wistron got upgraded from making the iPhone 5C to the flagship iPhone. The company can need a growth product like the iPhone 7 as revenues growth in 2015 was only 5%. With the iPhone 7 Plus deal Wistron is going to generate significant revenue in the second half of 2016 if Digitimes' report is true. The mentioned manufacturers have not made any announcements and declined to comment on the report.

This not surprising as Apple wants to keep as much of the supply chain details secret. 

On Monday Taiwan's Economic Daily News reported that Foxconn started to hire workers after the May 1st Labor Day holiday in China. This is earlier than last two years when the mass hiring started in June. Foxconn is preparing two manufacturing plants for the iPhone 7 production according to that report. 

The iPhone 7 is expected to be unveiled in September and to be released in the same month. The leaks so far point towards Apple keeping the iPhone 6S design for the most part. This is why Apple might not call it the iPhone 7. In 2017 the iPhone celebrates its 10th anniversary. The 10th anniversary iPhone is rumored to adopt OLED and a complete new design using glass on the rear.
