DigiTimes reports that Apple‘s suppliers for the next-generation iPhone are ramping toward full production capacity with manufacturing partner Foxconn already said to be producing 150,000 iPhone 5 units per day and the iPhone 5 shipments are said to be set to reach 5-6 million for the month of September and over 22 million for the fourth quarter of the year. The report notes that while Pegatron has reportedly been tabbed to handle about 15% of the iPhone 5 production load, the company may not begin deliveries until next year and the report makes no mention of any distinction between the iPhone 5 and the so-called iPhone 4S, as some sources have indicated that Apple will introduce both a revamped iPhone 5 as well as a cheaper device codenamed N94 based on the existing iPhone 4 design.
