For some of the latest inside iPhone information we have turned to AppleInsider (seems appropriate, eh?). Looks like analysts have found out Apple has revised its Q3 and Q4 iPhone orders.
Apparently Apple appears to have increased its iPhone build orders to at least 15 million through the end of the year.
Also reported is that Apple placed orders for 2 million more 2.5G iPhones as well, thus bringing the total number of expected iPhone production up to 17 million. Would this be for developing countries who don’t have 3G networks yet?
Keep in mind that this number is for only the last half of the year; this doesn’t even count the first half’s sales.
Sounds to us like Apple believes it can surpass its goal of 10 million units sold by the end of the year, and is confident enough to back up its goal with more than enough units to cover its behind.
