Apple is expected to place an order for 90 million units of the iPhone 6 with Foxconn, reports the Commercial Times via DigiTimes.

Buoyed by shipments of iPhone 6, Apple's smartphone shipments are expected to rise 23% in 2014 compared to 13% growth posted a year earlier, the paper quoted Wei Chen, an analyst at Citigroup Global Markets, as saying. However, the growth rate of global smartphone shipments is expected to slow to 28% in 2014 compared to 40% in 2013, while sales of smartphones in mature markets are likely to edge up only 4%, down from 5% a year ago, Chen added.

Another recent report also indicated that TSMC had started manufacturing of the A8 chip that will be used in the device. An earlier than normal start to chip production could give Apple the flexibility to launch the device in Q3.
