Apple is launching their new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus smartphones tomorrow and it looks like the devices will be in short supply at launch.
According to a recent report, Apple is planning to ship around 100 million iPhone 7 handsets by the end of the year.
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.
Apple has apparently increase orders of the A10 processor for the new iPhone 7 and also other components and the orders are apparently higher than previously estimated.
The new iPhone 7 is expected to sell out quickly when it launches tomorrow, the iPhone 7 Plus will not be available tomorrow as it has already sold out.
