Earlier in the year, rumor has it that all the finished devices of iPhone 5 are still awaiting the installation of iOS 5, thus, the finished products were not packed yet in full blast.
But iPhone 5 is now near its full production as the carriers have begun testing the final build for its operating system.
Inside reports say that Foxconn Electronics has even upped its production of iPhone 5 to 150, 000 units per day. It is expected to produce a total of six million in a month. Soon, shipments of the device will be on its way.
The suppliers for the iPhone 5 components are also already on the go. The companies Largan Precision for the lens, G-Tech Optoelectronics for the reinforced glass supplier, Simplo and Dynapack for the batteries, and TPK Holding makers of the touch panel have definitely gone to full production.
A total of 22 million iPhone 5s are to be made by the time they would be released in 2012.
The number is based on the fact that distributers have already started to make orders of the device from the producers. Even Pegatron have received increasing order demands for the device but Pegatron made public that they will not be shipping their shares unless the releases are really on their way next year.
There are however speculations that iPhone 5 will be available on October but most likely, Apple will just probably showcase the product and will stick to the original date of release.
Added speculations also say that the iPhone will perhaps include a 3G capable iPod Touch.
Hopefully, with all these speculations for the iPhone 5, whether these are true or not, Apple will still have enough units for all those who want to have a taste of this product.
