Apple?s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have been selling well. Actually, that’s an understatement as they have been breaking records and are set to go through the roof again when launched in China and India later this month. However, how well Apple’s flagship device does through a launch period is only part of the story as the iPhone has always had fantastic staying power. The iPhone 6 could take that to another level.
A new report from Asia detailing Apple-related supply chain gossip indicates the company might be selling well over 200 million combined iPhone 6 units in its 2015 fiscal year (from October 2014 to September 2015). Digitimes has learned from sources familiar with the matter that Apple has ordered up to 250 million units of combined iPhone 6 and Apple Watch chips. Of those, up to 40 million chips might be produced for the Apple Watch, leaving the rest for iPhone 6 models. The publication says that chipset orders for the iPhone 6 for the first quarter of 2015 have exceeded 50 million units, matching orders Apple placed for the fourth quarter of the year.
