Reports out of Taiwan are claiming that Apple could launch the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus sooner than usual this year thanks to high component yields.
Unlike previous years when we heard that Apple was having difficulties with the yield on key components for new iPhones, this new report does come as a surprise. The info allegedly comes from Apple supply chain sources in Taiwan, so it could actually be quite accurate. However, it doesn’t actually confirm an early release of the new iPhone models since Apple could still launch the new models in September due to incomplete software or other delays.
The report also mentions that Apple has increased component orders recently, perhaps an indication that Apple could be looking at starting mass production of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus handsets in the next few weeks.
