Apple Reportedly Orders 72 to 78 Million iPhone 7
Latest iPhone 7 Leak

A new report out of Taiwan says that Apple is asking suppliers to deliver 72 to 78 Million iPhone 7 devices. This is more than analysts expected.

The iPhone 7 is supposed to be face lackluster demand as it will not be dramatically different than the iPhone 6S oracle some analysts. A new report out of Taiwan says otherwise. 

The Taiwan Economic Daily reports that its journalists made a visit to mainland China recently meeting with Apple suppliers. The newspaper concludes that Apple placed orders in the range of 72 to 78 million iPhone 7 for 2016. Apple has sold 74.4 million iPhones in the 4th quarter of last year. The orders for the iPhone 7 are in the same range. 

The newspaper calls out September 13 as the date Apple will unveil the iPhone 7. September 13 is a Tuesday and would fall in line with past iPhone events. The iPhone 6S was announced on September 9, 2015, which was a Wednesday. The reason for the Wednesday schedule last year was the preceding Labor Day Holiday. 

Labor Day 2016 is a week earlier than the September 13 Apple iPhone 7 event on September 5 and would not interfere with that date.

The new iPhone 7 is based on the iPhone 6S design, but going to have some massive improvements based on the leaks we have seen so far. The iPhone 7 camera will get a major upgrade and not only the dual camera version. The design of the antenna lines is going to be much improved, making the iPhone 7 look like the iPhone 6 should have from the start.

Over the weekend iPhone 7 parts leaked suggesting that the iPhone 7 will come in 16GB, 64GB and 256GB storage configurations. Apple seems to be sticking to the 16GB entry level model, despite growing outrage amongst consumers.
