Report: Apple Increases iPhone Orders for Holiday Quarter

Apple has increased iPhone production for the holiday quarter, according to a report from the print edition of Taiwan-based newspaper DigiTimes (via ITProPortal). The trade paper said that orders from component supplier Primax and manufacturer Foxconn Electronics have been increased between 17 and 20 per cent in expectation of increased holiday business for the device.

DigiTimes has often reported leaked information from Apple's manufacturing partners based in Taiwan, many of which have even been borne out.

Apple often sees an uptick in business during the holiday quarters, and an increase in iPhone sales wouldn't necessarily be a surprise. In fact, one might be excused for expecting it. However, with all eyes on Apple's every move, a leak from OEMs and suppliers is the kind of tidbit prognosticators can sink their teeth into.
