Apple Lowers iPhone 4 Production to Prepare For iPhone 4S Release


Apple is to slow down production of the iPhone 4 ahead of the iPhone 4S release later this year according to news coming out of Taiwan. Tech news site Digitimes reports that the company is reducing the number of GSM and CDMA versions of the iPhone 4 being shipped as of Q2.

According to Digitimes, “Apple has lowered its expected shipment volume of iPhone 4 for the second quarter of 2011 from 20 million units, to 17.5 – 18 million units consisting of 16 million units of the 3G version and 1.5 – 2 million units of the CDMA version.”

It’s no surprise that Apple is starting to wind down production of the current incarnate of its celebrated smartphone, especially considering that many tech industry news outlets, including Digitimes, have previously reported production for the iPhone 4S is due to start in August, with a view to a September launch.
