Apple recently launched their new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones in China, they are also launching the handsets in more countries soon.
Demand for both models of Apple’s iPhone appears to be high, but it would appear that demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is actually higher than Apple has anticipated.
Earlier this month Apple increase their iPhone 6 Plus orders from their manufacturing partners, and now according to a recent report, Apple has again increased their orders of the handsets.
The main reason for the increased orders of the handset is due to the launch of the devices in China, where demand for Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus has been higher than expected.
When the handsets original launched, Apple was producing more of the iPhone 6 devices than the iPhone 6, and it was apparently at a ratio of 70:30, this has now changed to a ratio of 55:45, which means that demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is almost the same as the smaller 4.7 inch handset.
Apple reported record iPhone sales in their fourth financial quarter results yesterday, these figures only included some of the new iPhone handsets, and they are expected to post record sales again next quarter when the new devices are included in the results.
