Apple suppliers are preparing for production of a new iPad and only one new iPhone model starting in August, according to a DigiTimes report.

The sources pointed out that the iPhone 5's supply volume is estimated to be around 6-7 million units in the third quarter and with the addition of iPhone 4 shipments, total iPhone shipments in the quarter will reach 24-25 million units with volumes to maintain at the same level in the fourth quarter. In 2011, Apple is forecasted to ship over 85 million iPhones.

Since Apple is also set to start supplying iPad 3 in August, the shipments of iPad series products including iPad 2 are expected to surpass 15 million units, and iPad's supply volume for 2011 will have a good chance to break 40 million units.

DigiTimes sources believe that Apple is preparing to attack with a new iPad before its competitors grow stronger. The company is reportedly considering an even thinner and lighter design with a 250dpi display.
