Demand for iPhone Chips to Eclipse 50M Quarterly in the Second Half of 2017

Chip suppliers are ramping up for big sales of iPhones

A new report from DigiTimes citing sources in the Apple chip supply chain claims that quarterly demand for chips for the iPhone will boom to 50 million units in the second half of 2017. The report says that this increase in demand will come as suppliers begin to stock up for the new iPhone models being unveiled in the second quarter of 2017.

The sources are forecasting sales of the new iPhone models in the area of 220-230 million units. Chip suppliers that are tipped to be gearing up for a big second half of 2017 include ADI, Broadcom, Cirrus Logic, Cypress, NXP, Qualcomm, STMicroelectronics and TI.

Reports indicate that TSMC will be building the custom A11 processor that will be used in the coming iPhone models that should launch in September. This big ramp up means that lots of iPhone models are expected to be sold. The catch for fans is that rumors are still up in the air on just how much the iPhone 8 will cost and what features it will have. Some rumors claim that the curved OLED with an underglass fingerprint scanner is out and that a flat OLED and rear fingerprint scanner is in.
