As Mobile Marketing Watch has reported on numerous occasions in recent weeks, talk out of Asia that Apple’s next-generation iPhone has gone into production is heating up quickly.
On Monday, DigiTimes reported that “Pegatron has begun production of a new version of the Apple iPhone at its factory in Shanghai, eastern China, according to industry sources in Taiwan.”
Pegatron also has reportedly become the second OEM maker of a new version of iPad, with shipments in the third quarter expected to reach a few million units, the sources indicated.
Production is said to be ramping up this early because Apple is hoping to avoid any product shortages – the shortages that have accompanied almost every iDevice release in recent memory.
Also, as of Monday, there was no indication as to whether the so-called “iPad mini” is also in production.
