Apple seen slowing down component orders for iPhone 4.
Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5 in September along with the release of iOS 5. A new report by Digitimes suggest that Apple has started to lower orders for components needed for the iPhone 4. This would mean Apple is getting ready to wind down production of the iPhone 4 and switch over production capacity to the iPhone 5 soon.
The Taiwanese PCB (Printed Circuit Board) makers are the source for this information. Industry sources say that the orders from Apple are down by 10%. As the slow down is not that dramatic, I assume that Apple is not yet starting production of the iPhone 5. Apple might go into mass production around early August to produce the first inventory of the iPhone 5 for a September launch.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
