According to a recent report, Apple has placed orders with its suppliers, which include Foxconn and Pegatron in the region of 68 million handsets, and this is just for the first batch of devices.
Apple will launch two different versions of the iPhone 6, a 5.5 inch model which is rumored to be the iPhone Air, and a smaller 5.7 inch model.
We have been hearing more and more about the new iPhone over the last few weeks, and we heard yesterday and today that both models of the device will feature a sapphire glass display.
This will make the new iPhone considerably more durable that the previous models, as the display will be a lot more resistant to scratches and also less prone to cracks and breaking.
