Apple increases 'iPhone 13' production to 90million units ahead of launch

The launch of Apple’s next-generation iPhone 13 series is almost two months away, Cupertino giants are anticipating increased demand for the next iPhone as they have asked suppliers to “speed up the production and to 90 million units of iPhone 13 by the end of 2021,” reports Bloomberg.

Citing sources familiar with the matter, Apple has asked suppliers to ship 90 million units of the new iPhone which is a 20% increase from its usual orders (about 75 million units). Now Bloomberg’s report says that the main reason for ordering more iPhone units could be that, “Apple is expecting stronger sales of this year’s phones as the COVID-19 vaccination progresses around the world.”

Along with shipment volumes, Bloomberg also reported that iPhone 13 series – codenamed D16, D17, D63, and D64 – is expected to feature two entry-level Non-Pro models and two more advanced Pro models. Also, Apple is expected to introduce low-temperature polycrystalline oxide (LTPO) display on at least one iPhone 13 model, offering variable refresh rates, and iPhone 13 Pro could get a 120Hz display for the first time.

Other major upgrades in the next-generation iPhone will be camera upgrades – like improved optical zoom, more sensitive wide-angle camera and autofocus on the ultra-wide lenses and new video recording capabilities, upgraded SoC for faster performance. Although the external design will remain pretty much the same, Apple is also working on a smaller TrueDepth camera to reduce the size of the notch, but it’s not clear if we’ll be able to see it soon.

Although, the external design of the iPhone 13 will be similar to iPhone 12 (but could get two new color options like Rose Gold and Sunset Gold), with screen sizes expected to remain the same, 5.4- and 6.1-inch for standard versions and 6.1- and 6.7-inch Pro for models.

As you can see details of the next iPhone are slim, which could be the result of Apple’s recent warning letters to accurate Apple leakers
