Apple to Increase iPhone 6 Plus Supply Following Strong Demand in China?

Posted by · 7313 views · Translate

Apple may again adjust the supply ratios of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus due to higher than expected demand for the iPhone 6 Plus in China, reports DigiTimes. Prior to the smartphone's launch in China, it was reported that Apple had adjusted ratios in favor of the iPhone 6 Plus due to strong demand.

Apple now also sees strong demand for the iPhone 6 Plus in China after the vendor began to sell its iPhone devices in China starting October 17, indicated the sources. Consumers in China are now able to buy the iPhone 6 directly from telecom operators, retail channels or on websites, but they have to wait for a period if they want the iPhone 6 Plus, the sources added.

As a result, Apple may be forced to shift more production capacity to the 5.5-inch model, said the sources, adding that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus supply ratio is likely to change to 55:45 from 70:30 or 65:35 set originally.

Yesterday, Apple announced that it sold 39.3 million iPhones last quarter. The iPhone 6 is set to launch in 33 more countries this month.

All you guys need to relax man...its nt even launched here in south africa as yet. Then we still have crappy service providers screwing us with every single meg of data we use. Then we have a 15 to $1 curreency convert to deal with. While im budy i might ad that our apple store only started supplying movies, tv, music about 1,5 years ago...b4 that apps only!!!! Then we have no pandora, no beats, no spotify, no hulu, no netflix, no apple pay, no siri recommendations or traffic. SMILE MAN!!! You been having it;-) also a waiting list creates vibes and more people want the phone...cant jst flood a market!!! Wait a week and have all of the above? Or wait a day or. Two less and havr none of the above....??? I will swap places with you guys any day of the week

Better to supply them the most since it's built in China ! America still has a backlog 3-4 weeks online with not showing stores selling them without contract ! Apple you really have me now thinking how unimportant an upgrade to any of your devices is anymore !
