Chip orders placed by Apple for the iPhone 7 are higher than previously estimated, according to a DigiTimes report. However, they are still 15-20% lower than those for the iPhone 6s, claim sources.

Apple has set a goal of having had its manufacturing partners make nearly 100 million iPhone 7 devices by the end of 2016, higher than its suppliers' earlier prediction of 80-85 million units, the sources indicated. Actual demand for the iPhone 7 is expected to become clear after mid October, the sources said.

Unfortunately, Apple has announced that it will not be providing opening weekend sales data; however, T-Mobile has revealed that the iPhone 7 has already smashed records with pre-orders four times higher than the iPhone 6.

Clearly the audio jack issue is just a storm in a tea cup. People don't really mind if the benefits outweigh the costs.

... But why?? Why do people buy stuff that disables their choices even more? Even if you agree to live with a headphone dongle or proprietary wireless solutions it's just a matter of a year or two until the adapters won't be available anymore and Audio will be controlled again just as video is nowadays: we will be forced to use protected cables and devices that allow no access to the content except in the way the providers allow us to (like the whole HDMI crap)...
