Apple increases 2H11 iPhone orders, surpasses 56 million unitsApple is on a roll now, being the most valuable company in the US after showing the world that phones have finally trumped black gold. Well, having said that, Apple continues with their sense of optimism by revising their total order volume for iPhones (which means the entire gamut to include the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4 CDMA and iPhone 5) upwards for the second half of this year by 12% to 13%, which means over 56 million units compared to the original 50 million unit mark. It is also said that the iPhone 5 will make up around half that figure, touching anywhere from 25.5 to 26 million units.

That’s a whole lot of iPhone 5 orders, and hopefully the manufacturers are able to meet Apple’s demand. We are quite sure that all 26 million units would not have too much of a problem when it comes to sales, if history is of any past indiction. Still, it is interesting to know that the iPhone 3GS is still being churned out – you would have thought that this might be phased out already, being a couple of generations behind the race with the iPhone 5 around. Perhaps that could signal the low-end iPhone version that we talked about?
