25 million iPhone 5 ordered by Apple from Supply Chain says new Report

Apple seen to have increased orders for iPhones from Taiwanese suppliers.

We still do not no exactly what the iPhone 5 is going to be, but one thing is for sure: Apple will not be able to make enough to satisfy the demand at launch. It is save to say that the iPhone 5 will break all iPhone sales records when it will come out. Today Digitimes reports that Apple has increased the order volume of all iPhone models by about 12-13% for the second half of 2011. This means Apple ordered from the suppliers over 56 million iPhones. The report says that about 25.5-26 million are new iPhone 5 devices.

Interestingly the iPhone 5 orders for the third quarter have been lowered from 7 million units ot 5.5-6 million. The forth quarter orders have been raised from 14 to more than 20 million. This shifting of orders is a bit suspicious. My interpretation is that we see the iPhone 5 launched later than expected. Another interpretation is that the United States get again the new iPhone first and the rest of the world has to wait a month or more for the launch.

My guestimate is that the iPhone 5 launches in October in the United States and in November in Europe and Asia.
