The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus haven’t even launched yet, they will go on sale this Friday the 19th of September, and Apple reported record pre-orders of 4 million units in the first 24 hours.
According to a recent report from The WSJ, Foxconn, who are making both models of the handset from Apple are having trouble keeping up with the demand fro the handset.
Sources at Foxconn told The WSJ that production is running around the clock, and they are having trouble keeping up with the demand for both devices.
“We have been churning out 140,000 iPhone 6 Plus and 400,000 iPhone 6 every day, the highest daily output ever, but the volume is still not enough to meet the preorders,” the unnamed source said. “For iPhone 6 Plus, we are still ramping up the production line. Another reason for the limited supply is the shortage of 5.5-inch displays.”
It will be interesting to see how many units of both devices Apple has in their retail stores this Friday, and whether one model wills ell out quicker than the other.
We have already seen the shipping time of both handsets change, since they went up for pre-order, and we suspect that the larger iPhone 6 Plus, may end up being sold out quicker this Friday than the 4.7 inch model.
